a thought, and question;forum went off line yesterday; can the forum global mail all members if major glithes occur; is that possible, and anyone think it a kind of good idea?

I get enough unwanted emails now.
It would have been back before I noticed it was gone!

A lot of members would not notice a few hours break of service.

Any way yesterday was a 'no power day', the mains was off for a few hours because of a fire in a local sub-station and once the UPSs ran down we lost all contact with the outside world - no phones, faxes, computers and lights. Blissfull!

People would know that there is a 'glitch' as they would not be able to access the site.

I haven't been on here for a couple of days so had no idea there was a problem. I'm with GANDALF <|:-)> on this one.

Add to a problem by sending 172,752 emails!

is to start sending thousands of emails every time there's a problem.

We hope that quite soon there won't be any problems - or they'll be so few and far between, and so minor as to seem insignificant.
