Bit of a delay in mentioning this- but did anyone else notice the complete failure of forum URL last week?

I think the domain name expired. I'm not sure what has occurred behind the scenes to bring it back; but 'Thankyou, whoever you are!'

Is there any contingency measures we can take to prevent this from happening again..?

I realised at the time; I was completely powerless to even be able to contact 'anyone' about it...

Yes, I did. At first I thought it was the web browser I was using (Safari) so I used another device and tried Firefox but with the same result... nothing! 😣

Makes you realise what a valuable resource of information this forum holds, we'd all struggle without it.

I wonder how many of us would be willing to pay a small subscription fee to help with the running and maintenance of this site?

There was a mini panic amongst the others forums and Facebook.. I didn't even know who the admin was to get in touch. I thought it was GE giallo who I have not seen or heard on the forum for ages. Cheers Malfarati for sorting it out.

I can't take any credit for sorting it out. I experienced the same drop out as Dante Giacosa, just glad someone fixed it and the forum is back online. 😁👍

If Admin is reading (?), can I ask if this would help..?

I am reading it. AJ hosts it from one of his servers, he checks in from time to time. Im unsure on what this particular problem was though. Also I have not been on for 2 weeks due to moving house so that wouldn't have helped to raise the awareness either.

haha was it a shocked "who the feck wants that" face or was it a "don't start with car crap again" face?

I gave my 145 to Will....hopefully he will turn it into a track car or restore it or something....

I have a spare 3L v6 that would be cool to put in there
