denial-of-service attack6 months

Some of you may have had difficulty in accessing the website at certain times over the past 3-4 days. Unfortunately this website has been the target of a denial-of-service attack, where someone bombards the website with a huge amount of requests to try and deliberately overload the servers. While the attack is taking place the website will appear to be running very slowly and it may be difficult to access a page or pages may download incompletely.

Fortunately we have a good hosting company who have taken steps to try and mitigate the effects of the attack, by identifying and blocking
the specific packets responsible while allowing legitimate transactions to pass.

Sadly there are groups and individuals out there with a negative attitude who want to spoil your fun. Please bear with us while we try to do everything we can to resume a normal service.
