Sorry, been long absent. Too much real world. However, can't get the website to load. Is it down at the moment?

Hi Moggy,
Nice to see you here.  Yes, the website was hacked a little while ago.  Hercules is doing his best to get it sorted but it's taking a while.  The forum is still here though.

A comment in passing:

For myself, this is one of the best reasons for visiting the Forum as often as possible!    ;D

Thanks. Also thanks to all for the greetings.

Hi again Moggy  >11<

The website is down and I'm investigating other hosting options because we keep being hacked. We've had the forum go down a few times this year too. I had an extended holiday last month and this month and fixing it is on the to do list....!
Cheers,
Sabrina

I'm unable to view the videos on the forum that have been embedded  >367<

for example - http://follyfoot.org/smf/index.php/topic,3055.0.html

there's more that are in the video section that won't play either  >367< :(

Is anyone else having such problems or is it just me and my old computer playing up again?  >36<

Hi Tony,
The videos aren't displaying properly for me, either. I'll see if I can find out why; there may have been a software update to the forum software which is playing havoc with them.
Cheers,
Sabrina

Hi Mickey, we'll see you whenever you drop in!

Tony, there seems to have been a glitch with the videos but I can see them OK again now. Can you? Hercules thinks it may have been a browser-related issue but as it's rectified itself it could have been a problem with the hosting or YouTube.
Cheers,
Sabrina
