A customer kindly informed me this morning that the Forum was not working.
After an investigation, it appears that the database has just "disappeared" for no apparent reason.

Luckily, I have been quite assiduous recently about backing my site up so I had a 10-day old backup that I have restored.

Unfortunately, this means that any messages (or in fact new joiners) since the 3rd of June no longer exist, but that is the best I can do.

I am only able to backup the site manually as my provider does not offer an automated function, but I will start a calendar event to remind myself to back up weekly going forward so that any future loss is minimised.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
