    Exclamation Server Move - Read This

    Sometime this week, sooner rather than later, we will be moving servers to something a bit more capable, ensuring the longer term stability of this website.

    DNS settings have been changed to 2 hours TTL. I would have preferred shorter but that's the best our DNS can do. Some ISPs will cache the TTL way beyond this, sorry there's nothing we can do about that.

    Everything is almost ready to go, the first you will notice is this site will have a closed message. There will be instructions and advice on how to move to the new server.

    My advice right now... clear your DNS cache...

    start -> run -> cmd -> ipconfig /flushdns


    Cheers

    OT

    OT, I didn't do any of that and got back on line as normal this evening. Smooth changeover!

    He's even better than my best guess. Well done O/T Seamless as far I was concerned.
    Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm
