    Tonight (Monday September 27 2010) RaceDepartment will be offline for some time as we are doing a large maintenance on the server operation system, patches, upgrades etc.

    From 19:00 GMT onwards the site and forum will be offline from time to time as we are doing:

    1) Back-ups
    2) Full upgrade of Debian OS, MySql, Apache and other Indians that live on our server.

    We hope that after this upgrade the problems of the last days will be solved.

    In the meantime stay up-to-date about the progress via our Twitter or Facebook pages!

    Not all actions that we planned have been performed unfortunately. But we need to get some sleep also :)

    That's the usual "Donator" bug, Ivo.

    Does this have something to do with the Thanks button disappearing?

    Guys, I hate to tell you this, but errrrrr, I'm having lots of probs with the site not loading, just like before :-( I know you guys have worked so hard on this, so I hate having to tell you :-(

    Lets hope its a local problem here in the U.K. or my my provider, but every other site loads up fine...........

    Keep up the good work, it is very much appreciated :)

    EDIT: Just taken forever to post this and do this edit :-(

    Thanks Brian, we are aware they are still a few gremlins around. We are getting through them though one at a time.

    Thanks for the patience everyone.
