Hello, stranger! You've been quiet for a bit. Did you get bored with the Bored?

I got fed up with the same same but different questions from newbies and the constant bickering about EU being good or bad so decided to take a back seat for a while. I didn't even log in to check if there was anything good happening more than maybe once a week. Felt great actually!

You've been busy your new works website better by the looks of it...

QUestion on that - is it a case of, we've got 100 of these. When they are gone, they are gone. Stock's always changing etc?

It's just I've been back to look for something and it's not there anymore

(PLEASE don't take this as open, unfair criticism...I just know)

Yep. Seriously busy.

Most of our stuff right now is campaign-based so it runs for 4-8 days and then may or may not come back at a later time. What is it you were after? PM me. Maybe we've got some in stock even if it's not on the site.

There are no issues using IE - just add something like malwarebytes to run along side if worried

I have no warnings from malwarebytes - the site has been independently scanned and is free from malware, but google saw the issue last week and is warning based on that. All very annoying, but nothing we can do but wait for google to change it's mind (FF also uses googles warnings )

It was ages ago mate. I thought that was the case but worth asking.

I generally look at the emails. I'm after more art / pictures but that's on hold now until I move to the new place.

I believe that some posters using firefox are also having problems accessing the site.
