Site Downtime
« on: 17 May, 2010, 10:45:03 am »
Argh, yes it's that time again where we kick off the crust and shift over to something new and shiny  ;)

This is likely to happen over the next couple of days. If the site's offline then it's good news as the transition's in place and it won't be much longer. Hopefully you lot won't be without your thrillpower for too long!

I'll keep you posted as and when it's going ahead!

Sorry this is probably a little off topic (well it is) but since you're hear I was wondering whether there was any news on the new online shop that Keith mentioned a while ago?

You mean "they have worked out how to use the current site and are comfortable with how everything works, let's change everything again and confuse the crap out of them."

I think these changes are done in the same spirit as a kid who kicks over an ant hill every week or so.  ;)

OK kids, happening from 12 today (25 minutes) - downtime lasts around 24-48 hours depending on where you are in the world / universe.

Change of plan, or just a smoother transition than expected?

Good work, either way.

Cheers!
