Re: Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

Re: Error Message: firmware was changed with a latest one

Just searching for that on the site brings up loads of info about firmware, TAPs and patches. Searching for "firmware has changed" "view topic" site:toppy.org.uk brings up a list of forum posts with this error. https://www.google.com/search?q=%22firmware+has+changed%22+%22view+to...

Thanks Nigel. It is much appreciated.

Is there any way to make a donation? The donation link now goes to a generic page. Happy to do it via PM if that's easier

Re: Emails for Private Messages

I was going to say that choosing "Active Topics" from the dropdown will give you a list of the most recent topic postings, sorted by date. At least it does this on other forums I'm on that have upgraded. But here, it doesn't seem to display anything :(

It's fine when spinning by itself, but as soon as it's pressed against the top of the Toppy it starts misbehaving. Maybe I'll get the same again as it's still cheap :wink:
