I'm afraid that the MF section, among others, is lost forever.
The main site is backed up regularly, but not the Forum hasn't been backed up for very long time. My fault.
Its a shame... the mishap on this particular section of the forum, has co-incided with an increase in trafic on the MF section of Rob-galbriath's site. I used to find that both sites were usefull in different ways... perhaps more of a select audience over here, with Rob's site suffering from a few very techinical threads that were of less general appeal.
Anyway, far be it for me to judge these excellent sites, I just want to say that I hope this part of the forum picks up again and the good humoured banter that is also highly informative with some of the best practicioners in the world can contiune with the pre-crash vigour.
Maybe an "in the field" look at the Aptus 22 that I think might be done by michael will spark some controversy (I mean debate :-)
