    their web site is notoriously slow and awful to use...

    lets hope they are moving to a decent server

    Their website is extremely unreliable, and has been playing up for the last week or so. Does anyone remember how many weeks it took them to do a simple website upgrade last year? :rolleyes:

    give them a chance guys, because they are one of the cheapest the demand is great so the will need to be upgraded, the server cannot cope with the extra intrest or demand. once in a while this will happen. granted i have also had problems with them but hey every thing doesnt run perfect all the time. this is my opinion so dont take offence. :rolleyes:

    Dont they normally post a web page saying maintenance in progress or some such?

    I hope they haven't gone under, they have a lot of my money on pre-orders!

    I'm not worried, but if anybody is why don't they try to ring them and speak to real people rather than rely on the buck-toothed nerdery of the interweb?

    I don't think they work weekends anyway, so I doubt anything will be sorted out until Monday now.

    Sometimes a recovery from a major DNS problem takes a while to filter round. Some ISPs seem to be able to access a recovered site quicker than others, which may explain why some people still can't get in.

    Had a reply to my enquiry today. Seems we're not out of the woods yet!

    Hi,

    The site is online again. We are currently doing major upgrades to our system and the site may come down again. However, everything should be done by the end of the week and our site should be more faster.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience this situation may cause you.
