I have just completed the upgrade from vB 4.2.3 to 4.2.5 and the database appears stable and operating correctly. Please contact me via the "Contact Us" form at the bottom of the screen if you see something that you believe to be an issue.

As for the Russian Spam Bots - they are still with us, and I will be testing returning the auto registration to it's normal setting - but I first want ensure the site is functional (as there were a couple of issues during the upgrade).

As usual, thanks for your patience and support...
