Firstly, apologies to all the regular AROnline forum users out there. Due to a massive problem with our hosts, Streamline.net, the Forum, News and Blogs pages have been down and offline for the best part of a week. Despite constantly badgering its useless Support Department, Deputy Ed. Alexander Boucke has only just managed to get us back online fully and that’d only because he really does know one end of a UNIX server from another. I think that, had it not been for him, the lights would probably have gone out permanently.
The problems do, though, throw up a serious point. The time to move is upon us and we’re now looking for new hosts. I’d also say I am looking to move away from our static HTML site, too, and move to something dynamic with CMS. It’s a huge undertaking and we’ve twice started projects only for them to fall on their arse – but it’s going to have to happen now…
Anyway, apologies for the loss of service – hope you can forgive us!
