Thank You very much to all those working on the problem. I found myself going through withdrawals yesterday.

Hello,
Thank-you so much.
However, whie you folks likely have found a rational cause, I somehow think that I may have been a partial non-rational cause. I'd been mixing inks, and after cyclotron trials, it was found that the resulting ink varied colour during use. So perhaps some sort of event horizon was generated that carried-over to FPN. Or maybe it was just a coincidence.
Best Regards,
Sandy1

Thanks for everyones efforts, problems are still there though, unable to mark a forum as read and not showing posts I've written in.

Don't feel bad, dizzypen. I'm still having problems. At least we know it's not personal.

Speaking of personal: I've been kicking myself since yesterday for not having saved information from messages received. Glad to hear that the messages should still be there once problems are resolved. Will be very happy if they are still intact.

Appreciate the details in the status report, MYU.
