Forum outage weekend of 23 March
« on: March 24, 2014, 01:46:46 PM »
Apologies, some dumb-ass (me) forgot to renew the .co.uk domain name, which expired on 17 March.  ::) The .org.uk domain continued to work, although the forum may well have been a bit clunky on that domain for various reasons. Apparently Tapatalk kept working too.

To be fair to me, the reminder email was sent to a defunct email address (since updated).

All done now anyway.   :)

Have you had to put your hand in your pocket again Dom?

It was about eight quid. When I renewed everything originally the website hosting was paid up for three years - so still another year paid for I think - but the .co.uk domain only for two.

Grant (Kwackers) recently expressed an interest in paying a few quid for a banner ad (for his new clothing business) on the forum, I don't imagine any members would have any strong objections, and it would be a helpful source of funds for things like this. If it doesn't come to anything then I'll issue a plea for donations...
