    Hi JLR

    your not alone. the SG management is doing it's best to update to a newer faster system as this one is not the best.

    hopefully soon. i'm 56k and it is painfully slow at times. oh well the reward is when you do get in it's home to a great bunch of people.


    enjoy your weekend

    regards minir

    How long have you been back in town? Did you know that the forums server is at a new address? There was a change and things don't always work the way we're used to now. Philip nows about it and we're waiting for the new upgrade. How soon this is going to happen ? Not poking fun at you, just don't know how long you've been gone. You can read more here and here.

    This site has had a few DOS attacks as I recall. They said they're gonna contact the FBI if it happened again.

    yep, it's kinda slow. Don't complain, just hold on and give them sometime. It's not very easy to maintain a website

    It was neither a DOS nor our servers, rather a problem with the routers at the NoC where one of the servers is located. Sorry about the inconvenience, everything should be working just fine now.
