  • Website April 19

    Hi Folks.

    Our web host and designer has stopped trading and we are finding it difficult to get control back of the site. There is a chance that if we do manage to get the file back that the website will be unavailable while we find another host. Its a catch 22 situation as we cannot get a new host to transfer it to unless we have something to transfer. It would be a big shame to lose all the work done so far on the site and I would be unable to restart it without paying out the hundred i did in the first place all over again. Fingers crossed we can get our complete site file back in our hands.

        We still cannot get any contact from our site guy. This means that we are now many updates behind and our options are very limited. We could leave it and let it run but it could be shut down at any time with no notice or we could be cyber attacked and have no way of sorting it out. We have contacted companies to see if it could be transferred but they need contact with the web guy and hes not answering emails, our only way of contact. We are already working on another website design but as yet unable to fit a sort of forum type thing in it. I spent over £400 to buy the licence and set up this one so just a bit angry with this guy. Hopefully we can get the new one set up so that at least we have a presence on the web. As soon as we have it ready we will let you all know and then that will take over the the web page.

          Good News is that we now have contact with our current web designer/host and the site will have its updates over the coming days. Once this is done then a new host will have been found and we can transfer the site as a whole without losing everyone's hard work over the last six years. We can then kick on once more. Thank you all for your understanding during what has been a tough twelve months with illness and then this.

              As you can see we are already making changes to the site with the dark more corporate DS forum pages and the colourful surround. More to come in the next few weeks
