Monday 16 May 2005 - Server downtime, E-mail warning (updated), May Newsletter
Server downtime

Due to an as yet, unknown issue with my ISP, the Intranet server was offline from 11:15 (GMT London) this morning, until around 20 minutes ago (18:30). This downtime will have unfortunately, also caused the main support site to go down due to the news script (the bug within this script will be fixed within the next hour or so).

I would like to extend my apologies for any inconvenience this downtime may have caused.

E-mail warning (Updated: 24-05-2005 14:07)

I've been receiving some e-mail lately that claims to have come from it-mate.co.uk and mysteryfcm.co.uk e-mail accounts. As these accounts are owned and controlled by myself, I know these to be frauds. I would therefore like to warn everyone that receives an e-mail claiming to be from it-mate.co.uk or mysteryfcm.co.uk addresses, to delete them (DO NOT open them). The ONLY time you will ever receive an e-mail from ourselves is if you have requested such (and it will NEVER be from a Plus.com or Plus.Net account).

The e-mails we have received so far, claim to be coming from the following it-mate.co.uk accounts (and as of 17-05-2005: mysteryfcm.co.uk accounts aswell);
