website problems short-lived
Earlier this afternoon, you may've experienced problems in accessing my www.andybrouwer.co.uk website. I contacted my webspace/domain provider, namely 1&1, and they jumped into action and resolved it in about 30 minutes from the time of my telephone call. This was the first glitch I've had with them since the end of 2004 and when I needed them to act, they came up with the goods. Credit where its due, well done 1&1.
