As you can see, we're now back up and running. Thank you to all of you who expressed concern about the site being down - whilst it was a pain, there was a reason for it...

With the start of Roger's 2007 tour, we were experiencing a rise of visitor numbers (as we expected, and have seen time and time again in the past). However, just before the site went down, we had a dramatic increase - well above expectations - which simply overwhelmed the servers!

Whilst we might have been able to sort out some extra capacity to ride out this deluge of visits, the simple truth was that we couldn't afford it for the sake of a day or two of outage. Many of you will know that this site isn't run by the band or record company (and therefore not funded by either), it is run chiefly by me - devoting my spare time and paying all the costs of running the site out of my own pocket.

Contributions of reviews, information and more from a number of you are all HUGELY appreciated. There are two other ways you can help though - direct ways to help the running of the site, and at the same time showing your appreciation of our hard work.

The first is to use our special links to Amazon: either when they accompany a review or news item, or via our special Amazon-powered Pink Floyd store (simply click on the flags below to visit it). The menu in the store itself has a direct link to the main Amazon site for all non-Floyd items.

The other way you can help is to consider a small donation via Paypal. We set this up a while back as we had a few people asking how they can help out with the running costs, and any donations - however small - are very much appreciated and go towards our site hosting fees.

Hopefully, we won't experience such an outage again - apologies for any inconvenience or frustration whilst we were away from your screens, but we hope you now understand why!
