Hi All

Apologies, but the forum architecture was accidentally damaged during a "tidying" process - the vase fell off the mantelpiece while the mantelpiece was being dusted!

We are now re-established - a fairly significant moving of furniture, to continue the metaphor - but only as from the last full back-up which was mid-afternoon on 30 May. There may yet be unforeseen problems arising; please don't hold back from reporting them!

Everything between then and yesterday afternoon will not have "happened"; there will be posts that have disappeared and there will be new members who are now no longer members. For existential enquirers, quite an interesting experience - not quite so much fun for me, though. Please accept our apologies and please do re-post and re-apply.

Best regards,

Matthew

Hi ALL
Well yes it was me who messed up the forum my apologies to all
You will note your avatars are missing and if you used photbucket or simmler to post your images you may want to go back and relink them in
And please do re post any lost posts

Colin,

At least you didn't delete the whole of the internet, that would have been bad.

Phil.

Welcome to the club Colin.
I managed to delete a whole weeks playout database with one stroke of a key.
Was I popular or what!!
