  1. Tom Irwin has asked UKV to post the following job opportunity: World-renowned rifle manufacturer, Accuracy International is looking to recruit an experienced mechanical development engineer to work within their established and highly-skilled engineering team based in Portsmouth. This exciting role focusses on the coordination of prototype manufacture and assembly alongside the creation of detailed test procedures, conducting and/or monitoring product testing in indoor and outdoor environments and the delivery of comprehensive test reports. Suitable candidates will be qualified in a mechanical engineering discipline, preferably to degree level and be skilled in data acquisition and analysis. Practical experience in the use of mechanical test equipment and instrumentation, such as data loggers, accelerometers and pressure transducers is essential as the role will involve the design, commissioning and operation of test rigs as well as liaison with external test houses and test equipment suppliers. This full time position would ideally suit an individual knowledgeable in the safe use of firearms and ammunition. Experience in the defence industry and familiarity with international defence standards would be highly advantageous. An understanding of harsh environment and rough handling test procedures would also be beneficial. As you would expect for a role of this nature, excellent written and verbal communication skills are vital and a level of business travel to off-site test facilities will be necessary. In return for your dedication, drive and enthusiasm, you will be offered a competitive remuneration package. If you feel you have what it takes to be successful in this role please send your CV to ai@accint.org

    The current theme is now the default theme. Far easier to do and (hopefully!) future proof.

    The board has had a software update. The Vivid greens are something that has 'self-changed' as a side effect of the upgrade. Working to get the providers to fix it. Thoroughly frustrating. Bear with!

    The New format site - problem

    Blimey. Or, more logically: Stay on the actual UKV page. Look top right at the bell (the notification symbol). Click on it. Then Adjust notification settings (top right in the box that popped up when you clicked the bell, next to the cog symbol, the words 'notification settings') (It's been a long and fraught 24hrs since the enforced software upgrade, but I just taught myself that in about 3 seconds, from a standing start, with no prior knowledge - because this is all new to me too - by anticipating that there would be a simple solution built in and opening my eyes to look for it, seeing a bell and thinking 'what could a bell possibly indicate?' then hovering my mouse over it to see,what happens, and then seeing the word 'notifications' popping up to tell me exactly what it does. From that point, it was pure rocket science: I clicked on the bell to see what it did. )

    Part of the enforced software change is that user names have ceased to exist. Log in with your display name. Sorry, but there it is.
  7. Well, they call it an 'upgrade' not a reset, but it will destroy the look of the board for a while, and UKV will not look like UKV for that time- but all the content etc will remain. The 'upgrade' is being forced upon us by the software/service provider as they migrate all their services 'into the cloud'. We would not be choosing the change were it not mandatory. One point to note: Currently we all have a username as well as a display name. After the reset, we will be displayname only - the usernames will evaporate. I imagine that will affect some people's log in, so either take a moment to make them the same now, or wait to see how the system handles your login after the change!
  8. Just about to upgrade the board's software - the upgrade will destroy UKV's 'look' for a while. Bear with us!

    UKV is the place for informed precision rifle discussion, not the low-bandwidth and unamusing 'banter' nonsense that seems to make up most of this page. If you must, please conduct such interaction elsewhere on the internet and not on UKV. No more here, please. Thread locked.

    New WT1 Thermal Rifle Scopes

    Gentlemen, Something odd is going on in this thread, and it's all about rather disrespectful and rude behaviour that does not live up to UKV's first principle. Several posts have been hidden. 1 member has left UKV. Please: No more obviously trolling questions. No more answering questions 'on Clive's behalf', unless you have his explicit permission to speak for him.

    Sometimes 'board software says no' for no apparent reason. Should be working now.

    Gaz, I'm guessing you have a new computer or something causing all these problems - there are no automated blocks on the private for sale section.
