This statement has been recieved from our web hosting company. No-one has asked but I did notice a brief email dip, that I put down to Outlook rather than anything else - as restarting solved it.

In the meantime... this is the news from the hosts. We should not see any major disruption, but if you have seen any in the last two hours, this explains it.
--------------------------------------------------------------


"At 15:08 20th Feb we received notification that LINX one of our upstream network providers had congestion which caused intermittent network packet loss.

We immediately issued a network failover to our backup network provider to restore service (AboveNET) we have several backup network providers for rare situations like this.

LINX provide 80% of the UK network transit as such we have always used them for our primary Internet connection.

We are in communication with LINX until we can be assured they have no further congestion all network routes will remain on AboveNET thus ensuring continual service.

Please accept our apologies for any disturbance around 15:08 we will provide a full update once LINX confirm.

Kind Regards
Unlimited Web Hosting UK (contacts removed)"

Just spotted a problem on DABF - the server cannot cope with the word CASINO .

So, please change to c*sino or c@$!no to let it go through...

... and no, I'm not taking the p155, honest.
