As the software that this board is based upon is an old version I'm going to upgrade it sometime in the next few days.

While I do this it means that the board will be unavailable for however long it takes me to complete (hopefully no more than an hour - he says optimistically)

Anyway, I'll post another announcement here a few hours before I begin to let you all know when the board will be unavailable.

Kevin.

I don't know if anyone has noticed but this board is being severly hit by search engines, spiders, and most probably people trying to hack into the board. Look at the number of people online to get a clue.

This month this board has used over 30GB of bandwidth which is rediculous and costing me a fortune.

I really am going to have to perform some maintenance which is probably going to take longer than expected.

Therefore I am warning you all that this board will be offline between 8pm (GMT) Friday 31st December until such a time as I have sorted out what needs to be sorted. As this is New Years eve and I am off to watch Liverpool hopefully beat Chelsea on New Years Day it may be offline for a couple of days.

You have been warned!

Just a reminder that this board will be offline in around 2 hours (8pm GMT) so I'll wish everyone a happy new year now. occasion5
