recent site outtage

Post by Guy Croft » June 29th, 2014, 10:17 am

I am very sorry the site has been down for several days.

The server on which it was hosted was disabled by a DOS (denial of service attack). The company seemed completely unable to restore service which caused terrible problems for my good friend Phil Day of QA Webhosting. The only means I had of publishing this was via my Facebook page.

Thanks to careful backing up by QA and tireless efforts by Phil the site is now back - I hope more or less as it was a few days ago - now hosted on Phil's own server.

Many companies hosted by QA were hit by this and I want to express my thanks to Phil for the precedence he gave this forum and to all members who waited patiently and must have wondered what was going on.
