Owing to a problem with our hosts it has been impossible to log in to the forum since yesterday lunchtime.  The issue now appears to have been resolved but please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.  :)

I am sorry to have to inform you all , that there has been an ongoing databse error in vBulletin which has gradually got worse.. To this end we have had to revert to the last good backup which is dated 13th April and we have setup at a different URL & server.

Still unsure what the actual issue was. We might get this again I guess....

We've had no word from our hosts as to what the cause of the problems was, but hopefully they've fixed it. 
Many thanks to all our members, who have made PC Pals such an outstanding success!   :thumb:

I thought it was Firefox playing up again.  I have my username and password saved, but it kept telling me to enter a username!  Glad everything's OK now.  :)

Once again, many apologies for lack if access to the forum last night.  This was due to our hosts Webfusion (Pipex) letting us down.

The forum has been refusing to let me post this afternoon. I didn't know you'd installed a good taste filter. ;)

It's nice to be able to join the party. Btw, wouldn't logging in be a forum software or a database issue?
