      Dear members,

      Here's a digest of the latest forum activity for you. We've recently had a thermal article bonanza (links at the bottom) I hope you enjoy them.

      This weekend we upgraded the forum software and I would like to draw your attention to a really excellent new feature - the "Activity Stream". Basically you just click the "What's New?" button at the top of this page and you'll see exactly what I mean. This feature makes it MUCH easier to find the latest forum activity, presents everything in a much more logical way and allows you to filter the results.

      Finally, did I mention that we now have FREE iPhone & Android apps for this site? I'm sure I didn't. Oh, well I might have mentioned it once or twice. Click here for more info.
