Site Downtime

Back in Business

The site has been transferred, but there is a problem with customisation of the theme I was using, so I have temporarily switched to this one.  I will try to add the Saturday, Sunday and Monday posts to this site this evening.

Update – 05/07/2019

There may be further disruption over the weekend as, with help from the hosting company, we may be transferring to a new machine.  Should this happen then tomorrow’s hints will be published on the backup site ( and the new MPP and NTSPP puzzles will be postponed until the transfer is complete.


I’m sure you will have noticed that the site has been experiencing problems. For the time being I have taken it out of Cloudflare (who have been having problems of their own), although that might take a few hours to trickle through the networks. I have also deactivated a large number of plugins, so please don’t tell me this or that isn’t working!

  1. Phew – well done, BD – I’m really glad you’re back (ish)
    I only ever realise just how much I enjoy this blog when I can’t do it! Actually that’s not entirely true as I do enjoy it every day and have done so for a long time – probably about nine years now.

  2. Thank you for this fab blog! We may be lurkers but we enjoy completing the crozzy each day and reading the comments.

  3. Warmest congratulations Big Dave! You have been much missed. Thank you very much for this wonderful blog and for all your effort and expertise that keeps it going. Brilliant, and greatly appreciated.
