Many members would have noticed the forums have been down for a considerable amount of time. This was due to major technical fault with the server.  The technicians worked hard to get the server back up and running as quickly as possible.

However, we are not out of hot water yet. We have found another problem with the servers operating system that was related to the first  issue.

We are able to use the server for the moment but it will require a new reload of the operating system. So we are going to plan to do this at the weekend and expect a good 3-4 hours downtime while we reload all the data back on to the server and re-configure.

We hope this will solve all the issues which have been bugging us for a number of weeks.

Our future plans are to move to a much more robust infrastructure which should illuminate any future failures.

We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.

Have something to contribute?
