      A Huge Apology For Being Offline

      The work we had scheduled to do tomorrow evening at 10pm was carried out last night during a quiet period, and as you have probably guessed, it didn't quite go to plan.

      Unfortunately we were in a hard place as the software had gone up by 2 versions, and the licence key is none reversible. We had no choice but to wait for the fix, as there was no way of reversing the changes, once the upgrade had actually been done.

      Once again, we apologise.

      I thought the US government had mistaken the site for wiki leaks and had shut it down.

      Frankly, its just not good enough. I have websites I browse everyday in order to make sure the internet is working correctly. On Friday, the internet failed, or so it seemed. I was on my third coffee before I realised it wasn't my fault.
      In fact I'm thinking of setting up a Skyuseruser complaints forum!

      There is no p in Thomson.
