Last week, the guestbook was attacked by some people out there in Cyber space who think its funny to try and bring down sites like ours. They tried to flood the guestbook with millions of messages and requests and our hosts did not like this and so took the site down.
As many of you will know, whilst I have taken over responsibility for the site, my technical expertise is very limited and I was fortunate enough to have Dai Smith around to help get things back working.
We had to install a newer version of the guestbook (which has meant that there are some changes in terms of time out’s, etc)
We will look to try and remove some of these IF WE CAN but it may not be possible.
We are going to be reviewing a number of things in the summer so that the site is fully ready for next year but in the meantime please bear with us.
It was either these changes or no site at all and no ability to comment! I think you will agree that this is a better option than that!
I would like to thank Dai for his hard work in getting this back. I like the new look and feel personally. Like with all change, it takes some time to get used to but hopefully now everyone understands the reasons why.
