Goodbye and Farewell!
Yes I'm afraid with much regret it is time to close up and shutdown the site, I hope it has been of use over the years.
I have put well over £1k of my own money into the site since I started back in 2005 and whilst it was always my aim to provide an information service (i.e. not for profit) I had hoped that it could at least pay its own way and cover its own hosting, bandwidth, software costs.
But it wasn't to be , advertising brings in nothing and donations (thanks for those that did donate!) were at a minimum. The site is as popular as ever and gets lots of visitors but I simply cannot justify paying out £300+ a year myself no matter how noble the cause!
So without income to cover the running costs the site cannot carry on, it isn't a decision I've taken lightly and it does sadden me but I have to face the reality
A HUGE thanks to IMS http://www.imaginationstudios.com/ who have sponsored us for the last year and rescued the site from demise this time last year.
You can still find me on http://twitter.com/guidetoxboxlive
This page will remain in place until my current hosting package expires in a few weeks
Thank you to those that did support the site
All the best Shad0wmanUK
