apologies for the outage. Sadly a server on the same network as mine was the victim of a outbound denial of service attack, grinding the data centre to a halt. All seems to be back to normal now, but the host is keeping a close eye on things, and has shut the effected server down :mrgreen:

Lol Richard. Knew something was wrong when I got a server down notice.  Bloody pain in the ass, cos you have no control what so ever, until the attack is killed by host .
