    This is my recollection of how the "lets see 50 shades" conversation with my partner went
    (Disclaimer - photo may be a dramatisation of actual events and completely untrue but have yet to see the movie :D )

    Glad we are up and running, even if it will be sporadically for the moment.

    edit: Wasn't very impressed with 50 shades of grey, a complete load of rubbish. :eek:

    I thought it was due to an escalation of people using willrocks ignore feature in response to Silverpete.

    This is what a DOS looks like from a website traffic perspective.

    No need for donations - thanks for the offers which are appreciated, but the website is a business and I'm not big on "charity" for it - I'd rather cover it with new memberships and sponsor income.
