...thank you @snowbunny , for working your magic again! Not sure when you have time while running a business, building a house, warding off amorous Ginny and - let's not forget - investigating the dreaded chupacabra.
Well, it seems we may not be completely over it as a couple of people have noted it was slow last night - although I was using it in the wee hours (snoring husbands! ) and it was fine for me... so we'll keep an eye on it and keep reporting any issues.
I guess because we use the forum during 'off peak' down here I've never had any slowness issues. But I want to say a massive THANK YOU again to you Fiona. This forum is just amazing and all possible due to your generosity
