    After suffering multiple attacks in 2013 I have managed to find an uninfected backup of the site dated October 15th 2012. This is now mostly restored, please bear with me this is a hugely time consuming task.
    Hopefully in the next week or so normal service can be resumed.

    Successfully move the rebuilt site over to new super fast server. I am amazed it went so well, I must be learning something alongside keeping multiple backups. :(

    A circular mail to all the old members would probably be a good idea, I've only just found out that we're live again.

    Peter I have some secure cloud servers with rackspace if you want to discuss sending me a regular backup. that way if you another catastrophic failure you have a completely isolated backup site.

    Hey, I just discovered UK Divers are not dead after all! Glad to be back and in time for my next month's trip to Bali too!

    Since the site closed, I got back from Fiji last July and then went to Cayman Islands in January. Had great times on both occasions. Will post delayed trip trports soon.
