    Eurgh, we disappeared! But back now :-)

    Apologies, we had a daft fault but now the site is back.

    Although this site seems to have less issues than Facebook of late, due to the nature of technology these things do happen unfortunately.

    Weirdly, it was a similar issue to that which affected Facebook recently, although not (at least directly) our fault. We had a DNS issue, caused by a provider selling out to names.com which didn't go as smoothly as it should have done, resulting in about half a days outage due to reconfigured name servers.

    Anyway, after some frantic button bashing, we have sort of fixed the issue..............sort of?

    Well unfortunately due to the nature of DNS and the fact we were temporarily being controlled by names.com, (basically changing our "Time to Live" settings as well), some of you will not notice an issue, some may not be able to get on for the next 72 hours.

    Again, our apologies, we try to keep a stable platform and the website online, although we chose the supplier we didn't know this issue was about to happen.
    Any suggestions, information, complaints or grievances relating to this forum please feel free to contact us, talk to a mod or administrator

    thought it very odd and way above the sites management, bet there was some frantic keyboard tapping to get things back on track.....
