      Server Maintenance - Tonight

      We are going to attempt to upgrade the forum software, following on from last night sometime during this evening after 10pm.

      Once this has been done, there may be a few issues, which we will sort, however the benefits of using the new software are well worth a little inconvenience.

      We anticipate the website to be off for up to 30 minutes, and it will only affect SkyUser.co.uk and none of our other websites.

      Hi

      The Speedtester has nothing to do with the forums and should not be affected.

      Can you let me know which link it won't let you access?
