Technical issues at OrganFax

Sunday 3rd April

As many of our regular visitors will be aware, we have had several issues with the technology powering the OrganFax site - the most obvious part of this was the huge amount of spam posts in the forums. 

Recently this all came to a head and we were forced to restore the entire site from a backup. Fortunately this appears to have fixed the problems but we are left with a site that is a version from a couple of weeks ago. If you notice anything that has not been restored, please let us know at info@organfax.co.uk. 

We are currently working to restore the lost news items
