    Out of curiosity: @The Hat what is the blue machine in your alternative avatar, a band saw?

    Sorry for the late reply @PeterBJ, I don’t know how I forgot to post the above to your question. :hit
    Rob is right on the ball too, it is indeed a 3D printer. :clap

    This is strange. When viewing the forum as a guest before logging in I see two alternating banner ads, "Welcome to PK!" and "Why do you refill?". F5 and Crtl+F5 changes nothing. After logging in the the banners are replaced with a stationary smaller banner saying something like "We are still the same forum". This banner can be closed.

    Here are the two alternating banners I see before logging in:

    and:

    Banner2.jpg

    This is with Firefox, I see exactly the same with IE.

    @PeterBJ what about when you’re logged in, what Banner is visible on the site then ?

    On another note maybe we should run a competition on some of the best avatars on show ? ;)

    Now I see nothing. Last time I was logged in i closed the smaller banner "We are still the same forum". It has disappeared from both Firefox and IE since. Crtl+F5 doesen't bring it back and running CCleaner makes no difference. Here is a screenshot:
