  1. how long do accounts last with no activity? I'm leaving for Iraq in the fall for a 1 year tour and may not have computer access.

    As far as I`m aware Tedster. There won`t be a problem.

    I have looked through the Techspot faq`s and can find no mention of inactive accounts.

    I`m sure one of the mods can give you an exact answer to your concerns.

    Regards Howard :)

    It will be there when you get back. The accounts only really go away when there is a MAJOR change to the forums and there is no upgrade/conversion path. Like when we changed from Jawbreaker to vBullitin. That is why you see all us old people have a register date of Feb 2002.

    The only accounts that get pruned are those of members who have been inactive for more than a year and have 0 total posts. In other words, those accounts which were never really used.

    What about users who have been active for a few years, and have over 2000 useless posts (like me)? We could say my account has never actually been used..... :haha:

    Tedster, keep safe. Waiting for your return!

    Lol DonNagual.

    If that`s the case mate, then I`ve gotta be up the proverbial creek, without a paddle.

    Regards Howard :haha:

    howard_hopkinso & DonNagual, you guys get to choose since you're up the creek, implying water.
    A. B. or C.

    Tedster, Man what can I say?
    these 2 are for you since you'll be in the "****" and these work best for kickin real ****. :haha:

    my favorite things:

    a 249 machine gun with 2 drums of ammo

    a claymore

    a stinger missile

    lock and load man! (Haji will be in trouble......)

    BTW---- it's interesting to note that the army has kind of resurrected the vulcan gun in the form of the CRAM (a robotic anti-mortar system). Looks like the Aliens movie robot guns are now reality.
