So... Has anything happened here in the last couple of months? Nah - not much. Cough
- Tipshop should now (mostly) be back up and running in its new WoS server home. Eternal thanks to Lee Fogarty for his superb work at getting all of this back up and running!
- I've HOPEFULLY re-processed the 3 or so months worth of updates and corrections that had been done from the last backup of a non-corrupted Tipshop database. The last couple of backups were of a b0rk3d version, so I had to restore from an earlier version and re-do some work. Ho hum. Anyway - if you spot anything that I've missed, shout. Loudly.
- There's still a bit of work to be done with the move, so the old @tipshop email address isn't working. I've updated the email form page with an alternate one to use until it is.
- And now in non-move-related news....
