Basically, the mutant nuclear hamsters that we're breeding here at LXF towers escaped, and started chewing through the wires. We would've got the site back up sooner, but Rentokil were busy fumigating the place.

So, our apologies.

Hmmm.... mutant nuclear hamsters, breeding, escaped?

Shocked Question

LXF staff, partying, and "got out of control" seem more appropriate Cool

I noticed it actually I still cant get on by the site and had to type in the forum address manually.

Perhaps they should out Windows server 2003 web edition on the server to ensure it runs properly

Isn't it usually the cleaner who pulled the power cord to the server because the vacuum cleaner wouldn't reach the other end of the room?

Any sign beginning with "DO NOT" only applies to other people Smile
