    Apologies for the forum not being available over the last two days, there was problem with the hosts.

    The forum died at approximately 7am on Saturday, and last backup was made at 2am, so anything posted during those five hours is unfortunately lost.

    I decided to move the site to AWS Cloud hosting rather than wait for 123-Reg to fix the problem (which they still haven't done), and risk it happening again in the future. It's the same hosting used by Netflix and Dropbox, so I think it'll be able to mange the forum.

    Everything seems to be working ok, but if you come across any glitches, let me know and I'll look into it.

    This is what they claim was the problem.

    This is the latest in the saga. Good job I had local backups, otherwise everything would be gone.

    Good to see its back.

    I seem to have got rid of the kitchen people for now too.
    They still try, but they aren't getting past the new anti-spam measures.
    It is a bit of an arms race, so I don't know how long that will last for though.
