  3. PLEASE NOTE
    It is our intention to do some routine maintenance in the late afternoon/early evening of Saturday 20th January. For the most part, this will not affect the running of the site, but there is a very small possibility that things may run a little slower for short periods of time. Should this be the case, please bear with us and normal service will be resumed as quickly as possible.
    Please be assured that this maintenance is NOT being done by an automatic process, and is being done manually by the staff team, who will take all steps necessary to prevent slow-downs or disruption.
    Thank you in advance for your understanding.

                              Ironically (or deliberately) that character’s name wasn’t in the best possible taste. If you are not aware of it then I suggest you look it up. It wouldn’t be appropriate to post here.
