Admittedly a walloping great big technical hitch which lasted 3 days and was only resolved by the site being moved a new server and the Domain Name Server records being updated. But as of 11.30 pm on Monday, the site is working again. What time you get to see it live once more depends on how slowly the new DNS information spreads around t’internet.

[20/11/07 – and now comments are working again after some server level tweaking. Thanks for the tip off, John. Any other problems people come across, please let me know, but it seems OK now.]
