Main Site Closed, for now

Owing to rising costs – in part, it appears, due to a dramatic rise in “hot linking” to images on the site, which results in excess bandwidth charges of £50 per month – we have been forced to temporarily close down the main web site.
downthetubes normally costs some £500 a year to operate – in part to pay for hosting of the main site.  The site is run by volunteers. I cannot currently justify that cost in the current economic climate.
Our news blog is still active and will continue here at:
We are very grateful to our 2012-2013 sponsor Panel Nine for their support,
without whom we would not have been able to continue publishing the site for the last 12 months.
