Service Temporarily Suspended

Post by AdamH » 08:36 Monday 1st May 2017

To my horror, the computer I use to program the website and edit/store all my photographs suffered a fatal crash yesterday morning. :shock:

Luckily I have a very good friend who is a highly paid IT consultant in the City so a phone call was made and I found he was on emergency call but things were quiet and he was working from home, so three hours later I'm sat in his office at the other end of the M1 and thankfully all of my data can be recovered.

I have left the computer with him for continued maintenance and a number of key components are being upgraded at the same time. By happy coincidence we are both at a mutual friends party in Coventry on Saturday so it will be returned then.

Meanwhile, this does mean there will be no updates to the website and I am unable to gain access to my photographs. If you spot any bugs or errors in the website, please report them but they will have to wait. I am using the world's oldest Apple Mac to make this post... Nice to see it still works!

Adam.

He has just text to say it's finished and all working as it should. So, do I drive all the way down there to collect it tomorrow (day off) or do I wait until Saturday...

Is that still running? :lol:

I have decided to wait to Saturday and make a start on all those jobs around the house that I have been putting off... Now thinking I need to go back to work for a rest! :P
