Default Network problems and away time

Hiya folks,

Just to let you all know we're updating our servers and network (apparently, I never got asked about this). So my online access is going to be sparodic for the next week or so

Normal service will be resumed - shortly I hope!

I hope that all of it will be sorted out quickly, and with the least problems for you. Then it will be up, up and away, for you and your computer.
