It looks like we'll have to block certain parts of the world to get around it...   :(

Hopefully not Lancashire :worried:

He's talking about BOTS not BAPS  :D

We don't have BAPS in Lancashire - we have BARMS :P
(Just so you know not to walk into a Lancashire bakers and ask the lady to see her baps)

They always had em at Greenhalgh's when I were a lad.
Barms, Baps, and Oven Bottom Muffins.

BTW, I can't be doing with Gregg's. At least not in Lancashire  ;)

Updates cost a lot of money.....!  :(  Every time there is an error there are £££'s to pay.

Thanks for the explanation. New target achieved.

, I can't be doing with Gregg's
How do greggs get away with calling themselves a bakers? we've got 2 in the town and a third on the outskirts,and in neither will you find a loaf or unfilled roll,lukewarm pastys and slices? yes, sugar filled cakes-?yes, unsliced batch loaf? no chance,only option is to visit the supermarkets.

There's not really a topic anymore! Upgrades cost money, and, thanks to our members, the August goal is achieved!  :thumbsup:

As the instigator, I feel this topic has run its course. Can it be closed?

Just a sneaky reply (as the thread is locked!) to say THANK YOU for everyone donating.  The problems seem to have been solved and normal service resumed.

We were being attacked by a lot of 'bots' from other countries who trawl through the website, and they therefore slow the website right down.  These have been blocked and some changes made.  Hopefully no members have been blocked in the process!

Again, thank you for your support with this. :thumbsup:
