Looks like my original post was lost during the database roll back, so thought I'd post it again.....

 

 

A few years ago DADsFME almost closed its doors for good.  Wizard had said "No more MFME" and the site and particularly its staff were getting all kinds of shit from various people and I kind of lost heart in it all.  FME at that point wasn't in a great place.

What really saved DADsFME was a message from Alex (aamusements) from Fruit-Emu who offered host the site for free and even offered to purchase the domain name from me which he eventually did. This arrangement continued for several years right up to a few weeks back when I noticed the the dadsfme.co.uk domain name was within a month of expiring, that together with the latest batch of outages got me a little concerned and the fact that for whatever reason Alex has been a little quiet of late.  Obviously, I hope he's OK and everything is fine but I thought it was time for a change.

I really want to say a personal 'thank you' to him at this time for his support for all these years and I hope there's no hard feelings for jumping ship as it were.  If it wasn't for you DADsFME would not be still around so "thanks very much Alex"!!

This brings me to the new arrangement..

DAD's is now hosted by Reg @ Desert Island Fruits who very kindly made an offer to support the site by moving it over to his more secure server.  I once again own the domain name which as mentioned in the thread title is now 'dadsfme.com' so it might be a good idea to update your bookmarks.  The move was done by 'Pete W' who runs the Mecca to massive thanks to both of you, hopefully this new arrangement will continue for many years to come.

Great to see the site back up and running Andy.

 

Ive downloaded a few slots from the new site and each time I download my laptop keeps saying the files are unsafe!!

 

Done all the checks etc and all is aok-just a heads up for you to see what the problem is.
