Sorry folks, aboput the downtime again with the Awn forum.....I emailed the creator of our great forum software and he contacted the host and they said:
"Sorry about the downtime experienced today. We have network and DNS
issues today. If you are writing in because your site is down please
hold off if you can. We are currently running an update that will fix
all of your domains, but unfortunately the update takes a while to run."
So just hang on a bit longer, and I will keep you posted on whats going on.
