New Home!

13th January 2010

The site is now running at a new home alongside nearby.org.uk. Please be patient if there a few things broken, we are currently testing all features to make sure they work.

We don't intend to change anything - so the site will still look and work the same as it has always done - just with a new admin.

All site functions, including registration of new users, should be now functional.

Due to changing personal circumstances, I am not able to maintain this site any longer.

As of 11 January 2010 I have suspended the registration of new users. I will leave the site otherwise intact.
