    Look at the start of this thread. We don’t usually split threads

      When the Britmovie folk* set up shop they chose to put the forum in the vBulletin software platform, and a good choice it was.

      The programmers of the vbulletin software are British (Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd.), but in 2007 they sold to an American company, Internet Brands. This forum is hosted on servers owned by them and their fees are in dollars. For what we needed they were the best game in town, there really wasn't another option though. I'm British (wearing my Tim Brooke-Taylor Union Jack waistcoat as I type) but live in Florida, so it's easier for me to pay in dollars. The $39.95 is listed first because that is a constant monthly fee. The exchange rate makes the equivalent in pounds hop around. If anyone can find a UK server farm that will support the software economically, I'd be happy to move it. Cheer yourselves with the thought that a British guy is running firearms manufacturer, Smith & Wesson.

        Thanks for your response it was much appreciated. I now understand why the amount is in dollars. Sometimes when you ask things on here people respond in ways which can sometimes appear unfriendly. Your response was great thanks again.
