Say no more. Site down for almost all of the last 24 hours/yesterday.

I suffered from severe withdrawal symptoms!

Don't despair, the Ads were working OK.

I must admit I tried every couple of hours or so and became increasingly miffed when I couldn't get on - absence makes the heart grow stronger and I did miss the 'old girl' ;o}}

Was it?

I had no problems reading posts and accessing pages, although I wasn't logged in.

"I suffered from severe withdrawal symptoms!"

I didn't. I went back bed with some strong pain relief.

With the newist neighbour's next door having a young member of the family birthday party, bouncy castle and all. I decided it was the best option. It also stopped the Halloween door trick and treater's calling. Turned out a good day ;o))

I just thought the site was "frozen" - maybe bewitched for Halloween or using Talk Talk (hijacked by a 15 year old).

We obviously appreciate the free site and would be interested to know what happened. The team must have been busy to put it right.

Our apologies to all.

Because this happened over the weekend, I have no idea what the cause was. It seemed to be localised on the way the forum pages are served, because I was able to navigate the rest of the site without any problems. I could also access the forum pages via a complex route, but I wasn't able to post.

All seems well now, and as soon as we can discover the cause of the problem we'll update you.

We are investigating. It might be linked to us having to change our login process, as we are moving to a new commenting service.

Oh, No!

I was busy elsewhere. Didn't know there had been a problem.
