Just in case anybody is wondering, our server was offline for about six hours from 03:00 to about 09:00 this morning. I don't know what went wrong yet but an email to support at 08:00 seems to have prompted a reboot or something.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

hot in summer, baltic in winter.  We were snowed in last year twice for a period of a week each time!!  Hence the need for snow tyres haha

Are snow tyres compulsory where you are? They are here or all weather tyres and must be on by the 1st November

No Joanna, not compulsory, but I've been told that it is in certain countrys.  Just don't want snowed in again, it's ok if you know and stock up - wine, fags, and food in that order haha

Yes compulsory here in Latvia, Sweden and Norway I believe probably Finland and Estonia too. Good idea really, we are expecting snow on Wednesday but we have all weather tyres so should be okay. Hehe we hijacked Danny's announcement to talk about winter tyres runaway
