    Apologies for the downtime.

    Glyn has been working on this all day.

    He tells me there has been a server crash on the forum's old server so the opportunity was taken to move onto a new server. Unfortunately whilst the forum was quick enough to transfer, the database wasn't as it's huge!

    Avatrs sigs etc may not be here. Any questions ask Glyn as its not in my sphere of knowledge.

    Right. We now have our own server.

    Avatars are on there way, as are the files and pictures within the posts.
    So dont panic.

    At the moment the emails may or may not be working. I hope to get this solved before 3am!

    Please let me know if there are any issues or items I have not noticed.

    I know about the main www.national-preservation.com website still points to the emergency hoding page. Waiting for the DNS.
