Downtime - July 1st
We are currently experiencing an outage with our email service. We apologise in advance for any inconvenience. Please rest assured that we are working on this outage as a priority and will update as soon as we can.
UPDATE: 11:45 - We just wanted to advise at this time that we believe the problem are being caused by an attacker. We are working hard to resolve this issue and want to reassure our customers that no data has been lost or breached by this attack. We will update again when we can.
UPDATE: 12:05 – We have applied a temporary fix to the server and email is now flowing normally. There are in excess of 500 messages in the queue which will now reach in-boxes. Please all try connecting and if you have further issues then let us know. We will be working to apply some additional fixes to this problem tonight so please expect some further downtime after 20:00.

Top 10 Pieces of Free Software You Might Want
The idea that they've just purchased a lovely, shiny and new notebook or desktop with some hard earned cash and all you can do with it is look at a pretty screen and browse the web is quite a depressing one. Where is all the great software that allows me to do ‘things’ with this amazing piece of equipment? Well have no fear, because this issue presents a list of the ten pieces of software you may want:
1. OpenOffice – This is a great Office productivity package to rival the need to purchase a Microsoft Office license and is perfect if you need to only do light word processing and some basic number crunching on a spreadsheet.
2. Google Chrome – Chromium is my current favourite when it comes to browsing the web as it is so much faster and safer than Internet Explorer and is fully customisable. There are other options such as Mozilla Firefox or Opera Browser.

Scheduled Maintenance (2012-03-09)
All customers who use our email or website platform need to be aware that we will be performing some scheduled maintenance at approx 14:00 on Friday 09th March. This maintenance is for standard updates and hardware checks and should be completed within 30 minutes. No emails or other data will be lost in this down-time and any emails received during the 30 minutes will be re-delivered when the equipment is back online.
If you experience any issues after this upgrade, please contact Alex in the normal ways.
4 Things You Didn't Know About Your Broadband
The Internet is accessed daily by more than 60% of the UK Adult Population, that’s over 30.1 Million people and most of those get access through some form of broadband; whether that be ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line), Cable, Satellite or through the Mobile Phone Network (3G). This issue focuses on 4 things that you (probably) didn’t know about your ADSL Internet Connection:
1. Broadband Speeds - The speed of your connection will vary wildly depending on many factors from the speed of the broadband you saw advertised e.g. “Upto 24Mbps” or “Upto 8Mbps”. Unless you live within a short distance of your telephone exchange, you won’t get these speeds and even then, factors such as poor internal wiring and bad filters will decrease your speeds. Always get a speed estimate from your broadband supplier who should be happy to do so under the Ofcom Voluntary Code of Practice. If you suspect you may have speed issues with internal wiring, use your master test socket as a way of removing them in order to diagnose the location of the problem (external or internal).
