is a very important message - Please read it!
Because our visitors failed to raise all the money that we
needed by the 3rd of July 2013, our website as it was no longer
exists. However, because I have put so much time and money
(and blood, sweat and tears) into the website since it first
launched in 2001, the website is still here but in a very
restricted format. Read the details of the changes
to the website below:
- I am now self-hosting the
website from my own computer using my own broadband
connection. Because of this, the website will NOT
be available 24 hours a day.
- Because I am self-hosting, if
I need to use the entire bandwidth of MY broadband
connection, I will take the website offline.
- If MY connection gets
too slow, owing to the amount of visitors accessing the
site, I will take the website offline.
- If I am requested by my
Internet Service Provider, I will take the website offline.
- The 'Members Area' is
suspended until further notice as this uses lots of
bandwidth with the broadcasting of videos. Members
'membership accounts' are suspended as of the 3rd of July
2013. (Members please
see the note towards the bottom of the screen)
- Website updates are no longer
guaranteed to happen on the 1st of the month. They
will be carried out as and when I have time, some months may
not receive any update! If you want to know when the
website has been updated, you will need to join our 'Mailing
List' - which you will be able to access from the 'Main
- I am no longer taking any
requests for pictures or
persons to be added to the website. I figure that if
you cannot be bothered to donate any money then I cannot be
bothered to look for pictures for you!
It is very important that you
only bookmark THIS page of the website. This is because
when you click through to access the website, you will be
accessing the website via a numerical IP address. The IP address is
not fixed and will change periodically!
Please be aware, that this
self-hosting of the website is NOT a permanent solution,
as soon as I experience any problems with my internet connection
or with my computers ability to do other things, then the
website will be shut down.
So, if you ever want to have the
website back, running on a fast server that can be accessed
24/7, then you must make a PayPal donation by clicking on
the 'Donate' button located on the left of the screen.
NOW! - In order to access the
website, if it is online, you will see a green coloured 'tick'
in the 'Website Status' box. If the green tick is showing,
click on that tick and you will be taken to the restricted
version of our website.
to members: If our visitors do ever raise the money that we
need in order to move the website back onto a professionally
hosted server, your membership accounts will be reinstated as of
that date. Your membership expiry date will be adjusted so
that however many days the 'Members Area' is offline,
your membership expiry date will be increased by that number of
days. We will also give all members a 31 day extension on
top of that new expiry date by way of compensation for the 'Members
Area' being offline.
