Download and Web Server Issues

Hi Everyone, Unfortunately our ISP is having some technical issues that is causing our download server to be unavailable. It also brought down our web server a couple of times over the past two days. It does not appear to be related to the number of downloads, but a wider issue with the ISP. As soon as we get more information from the ISP, we will pass it on. Sorry for the inconvenience, it is very frustrating at our end as well I assure you. Regards, John
