I think he meant "Just a bit? NOT!"

Fair enough, but I am always trying to educate the staff in the fine art of talking Brit slang (I love an oxymoron).
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

You're right about my gender, but as for the connotation I'm actually a bit of a lazy git.

Oh, I'm a big fan of using the word "git" and now, for those on these fora anyway, I have found the perfect example for it's use. :D :D

Won't be long now before we migrate back.  The hold up has been some of the modifications that we use have been a bugger to get to work in V2, and I don't think we will be able to install the invite system at all.  I am not going mad with a new theme either - just something that is ours but keeps it light and clean.  I would have liked to do more but I have been busy with some real work of my own and have had really limited time. 

Both this site and Diasfora are now hosted on the same server so whatever the service has been like here in my personal domain, you can expect the same when we migrate back. It seems better that our old host to me already, but I have had even less time to relax in the forum so my assessment might be off?

Although there is a forum installed in the old domain, there is only a provisional database that doesn't have any of your accounts imported yet.  The reason being, when you hand code stuff into SMF it will temporarily bork the site until the modification is complete and so I need to get that stuff done first before we migrate back. And, if I completely blow it up and can re-install the forum without losing whatever has been updated on the boards.  That is the reason why I have left us here so that you can all carry on regardless and when we move there should only be a break of service for about an hour.

If smokes is anything like me, the transfer might not take anywhere near an hour but you always pad the time in case of unforeseen complications.

I was only getting 14/15kbs upload speed when FTPing for some reason, and when our DB was 71mb it was taking forever to complete.  Now that its under 40mb and my connection seems better you're right in saying it should take a lot less, but I would like to incorporate the chat room back in before going live and that may take a few mins.
