Apologies for the downtime over the last few days. I have endevoured to keep interruptions to a minimum but the migration I mentioned around December has suddenly arrived. My host has physically moved to a new location, fired up brand new servers, the works. Avida has been working really hard on the project but there may be a few glitches in the short term so please bear with me. The guestbook, for example, won’t be accessible until we get the cgi-bins up and running again. Fingers crossed, it won’t be too long!

For those who contacted me: thanks I do appreciate people letting me know when things don’t seem to be working right (and they were rewarded with the backdoor into the site!). The majority of the site should now be accessible, but do let me know if you spot any quirks.

For those interested in what went wrong: the technical spiel is that until the new security protocols are implemented, the new servers don’t support SHTML/PHP to prevent intruders. This does not affect the majority of the site but the entry pages happen to use a few scripts that require SHTML, hence you were greeted with my custom made “403 Forbidden” pages. Still, nice to know they work!
