Technical Problems Solved - The Forum is Back
Huge apologies to all for the problems that crippled posting and messaging functions. These problems were caused by the hosting company I have used for almost twenty years. I finally gave up waiting for them to fix the problems (which would probably reoccur at some future date anyway) and moved everything over to a new host. Everything should be working as before, although you might notice that pages load faster. There are also some improvements in the background to do with security, although you won't notice these.
I will be private messaging everyone to apologize and let them know that the forum is back in action.
