As the festive season threatens to overwhelm us I think we should express our thanks to Martin for providing such a useful and entertaining Forum for us to spend time on and at the expense of much of his time and money.

A small contribution from all the regular posters and those who may not post very much but who still really appreciate the forum as a modelling information resource would  make his job a great deal easier and keep Mayhem on a sound foundation. Nothing comes for free, and Mayhem depends on the goodwill of regular posters who give their time and advice and on Martin who keeps the show on the road technically and financially.

Of course, if Martin then starts posting from a cruise ship in the Med then maybe we have overdone it but I rather doubt that will be the case.  :-)

At least they told me this time...



Between 9th and 11th December 2017 we will be conducting maintenance that will result in a brief downtime of your VPS services. This maintenance consists of infrastructure improvements that will allow us to provide even better service to you in the future.

This maintenance also includes the issuing of new IP addresses. Your current IP addresses will continue to work to ensure you do not have additional service disruptions.

Due to the nature of the maintenance, we are unable to predict the exact time of service interruption. The interruption will last no longer than 1 hour. Once the maintenance is complete, we will send you an important follow-up email that includes your new IP addresses and additional information.

We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to improve our Host  services.

Some feature of Mayhem may be a bit wobbly for next few days, there was an IP with the new server and it takes time for things to propagate around the Internet, hostname servers, DNS & Nominet etc....  {:-{

Hullo Danielle.......

I certainly have no IT experience, however if others can post an image on your thread, could point to the issue being between your IT server/host/provider and the MBM WEB site.....I can only see this in simple terms

Derek in Australia with Australian Telstra can link up with the MBM server & post a picture...so all is OK :-))
Danielle in Switzerland with Swiss ????? cannot link up with the MBM server & post a picture...so all is not OK >>:-(
