Hi all,

Yes, the main site has gone down.  There has been a problem contacting the owner of the web site (a previous FFDS member), and thus there has been no way to transfer the site to any new person.  The member who was providing the money for the old site has been hit hard by the economic downturn, as have the rest of us.  Thus, (for now) the site will be down until/unless Felix is able to make other arrangements (AFAIK).  Hopefully that won't be too long.

Take care,
 

Tom Gibson

Are you going to be able to get everything from the old site? I'd hate for you to lose everything.

No problem there.  It's going to be more of a problem to change the images from "com"  to "org" ....

That's great! Nice to know that you still have it all. Sorry that you had a lot of work to do to get it all back up and online again Felix. Well done!

This bit I found interestin though :- UPDATE March 16, 2010. In my part of the world it only the March 8, 2010. I don't know how you managed to get 8 days ahead of me. Did you make a "Tardis" with FSDS and use it to go to the future? Grin

Just kidding! Well done.
