Well it was down for a bit tonight and might be again for a bit of time tomorrow. I would say normal service will resume shortly but lets hope it is better than normal service. I ended up using the folks that martin recommended and he has had no trouble with them, should be the same fingers crossed.... touch wood.... and all the rest of it.

Working no problem today - on dialup at the moment and it's as fast as it is on broadband at work, which probably says something about a better server speed.

Thanks for asking Dave, lets just say that getting an advance on the book has helped out. So really Hodder and Stoughton have paid for the new server :lol:

It's not 100% there yet and there might be a little more down time. Then we will be running like a dream. I hope :mrgreen:

Well, I'm a bit disappointed - last time the excitement lasted for a couple of days or so. This time I haven't even noticed the change. I suppose that's modern technology for you.

I am sure you won't be disappointed mate, like I said it is not over yet. It does help having someone who does this for a living helping out though.

Right... sorry for the delay everyone but it is now well and truly moved over.... for the next couple of days it will say 'petitgourmand.com' which is an extra domain I had lying around it and used it because it made it easier to get everything working (please please please don't make me explain why!).

Enjoy!
