Hi Folks

I'd like to apologise for the website not working at the beginning of this week; the finger of blame as always points towards our service providers who in turn are blaming the massive disruptions of the internet in general at present due to KPNQwest entering the coffin.

It appears that KPNQwest are still going, so your service provider may be using this as an excuse for other problems. Suggest you push for compensation, I have noticed that the site has been down on other occasions.

Just read this at http://www.theregister.co.uk (IT news) :

"The latest threat to pull the plug on KPNQwest's pan-European network appears to have been averted.

Alcatel reportedly threatened to withdraw support for KPNQwest's network unless the bankrupt operator stumped up E15 million.

However, the receiver said that Alcatel - which is reportedly owed E100 million in total - is no longer demanding the cash, according to a report on AFX.

And some of KPNQwest's customers have coughed up enough cash to keep the network going - for the time being at least.

So KPNQwest lives to fight another day."

getting compensation out of service providers is like trying to get water out of a stone, especially for a non-profit site. Thanks for the idea though!

I'm sure there was a dip - panicked people selling up quick. I find it quite amusing! Ever since those .com companies ran a ground it's been low and bouncy.
