|Apologies to all for the site gong off-line for about a month - a combination of things all going on at the same time prevented me from fixing the problem.
Basically the original host went off-line without notifying anybody and are now so uncontactable that even their explanatory note on their own website has disappeared, in fact their whole website has disappeared.
I am now hosting it under a more reliable host and in fact without their help I would still be struggling as my SQL knowledge is limited to say the least, and one kind soul at my host helped me out by renaming a few files for me, without which the software would not work.
A few posts from the GB Machin thread have not appeared for some reason, I will try and resurrect them over time. Also I need to spend time putting the registration question in, as at the moment I have to activate all new members and that was never a satisfactory solution for preventing spammers. SO - it will re-appear - it is just a question of when (no pun intended).
Lastly - I apologize to any members who joined between October and December 07, I am afraid you will have to re-register as that data is lost for ever.
