G'day guys,

Kip (my server admin) and I have been working our speedos off over the last couple of weeks. We upgraded one of the servers and I've been using this opportunity to do some pretty major updates to the forum.

I appreciate your patience during this period and I hope it will prove to be worth it.

Here is a list of some of the visible updates, there are more non-visible updates involving speed/security/backups but that stuff is boring.

  • Staying Logged In - this was a bug that I've really wanted to fix and we have done it. I know I'll enjoy this fix.
  • Photo Slides - now you can click on an image in a post and easily scroll through all the images within that post. Try it out, it is awesome!!!
  • New Profile Fields - be sure to update your profile. Now you can include your Skype/Twitter/Website links and be sure to select the flag of your homeland.
  • Tapatalk Update - this is a mobile app that a few hundred of you guys use. It is updated and working great.
  • PayPal Donation - this forum is free and I hope to keep it that way but understand that it takes time money to keep it online. If you'd like to make a PayPal donation, there is a link in the header and any donations will be much appreciated.

Enjoy the forum and if you have any feedback or suggestions, please shoot me an email (DaveEvans@SwimmerBoyz.com) or a private message.

Hello from the Midwest/Southeast

Post by drummer0083 » Sun Jan 01, 2017 11:18 am

I've been hanging around for several years now, but I realized that I never really introduced myself! So here goes! I'm a 23-year-old male from Kentucky (which is why I said Midwest/Southeast--it depends on who you ask!).

I have always enjoyed swimming, but really got into it after high school. I joined the YMCA and started swimming laps about three times a week. I lost about 60 lbs in the course of a year or so. I got a new job in 2014, which has made it more difficult to find time to swim (I would usually go in the mornings before work, because it was on the way). So now I've gained about half of that back. But I am determined to get back in the pool in 2017!

Swimming is enjoyable for me not only because of the weight loss, but it helps with my mood/stress and helps me sleep better, too. I was worried at first about wearing speedos, but I eventually decided that I was at the gym for myself, and the results spoke for themselves!

Glad you finally said Hi! Keep up the swimming. I just started a month ago, and now I won't swim laps in anything but a speedo.

Hey Drummer - welcome! Great to have you active on the forum. Great red speedos you're wearing in your avatar.

All the best with your swimming and I agree - it's a fantastic way to relax and keep in shape. Hope to see and hear more from you on the forum, mate!
