Web Site Outage 3rd May 2016(update)

Apologies to anyone trying to access the site (or sending an email) over the last few days as the site has been down – yet again! Another problem which occurred was that the server company reloaded everything from back-ups they recovered, but as this site had been updated in the meantime it was the old version – this has now been corrected.

The original problem, which happened on the 16th April, was due a major cock-up by the company owning the hosting server – this caused this site, and many others, to be deleted, plus the back-ups! See the BBC story for a fuller account.

The hosting contract is with another company, but unfortunately they use the servers that had been wiped. Facebook has enabled me to keep in contact with some people so at least they know I'm still here!

Hopefully it is now sorted!
