Just wanted to let everyone know that I've been getting a suspended user page when I go to the GBforums hosted by Hussolo and now got some sort of hacker screen showing up....

I also just went to retrieve an email from OnlineCoins and they look like they might have been hacked also..

This isn't just a forum - Purchase British coins, collecting accessories and books on www.predecimal.com

Hus's hosting site told him a short while ago that they would stop hosting in 6 months, but then shut it down fairly promptly. That is why the account suspended page came up. It was based in Egypt apparently.

According to an email he sent me a week or so ago, he is trying to get the forum contents onto another hosting site with all the data intact. That is why it disappeared.

I also thought of that.
Before they will block most account they do give warning to members didnt recieve any,so I did search in the web for any other reason.
Coinsgb is down also Euroswapper is downsizing I think?
Maybe next time I will edit and print other good thread in other forum just in case,the library is still standing but other forum is having difficulties, hope other will still last,just a comment.

I got that too. I get the impression that Andy Bruce hasn't had so much to do with the site recently as most of the coins listed seemed to be Rendell Ingrams'. I wonder if the hosting subscription was ending and lapsed?

I just checked my pms and see I messaged Andy 6 months ago and didn't get a reply ...

Shame. I got a handful of really nice coins from him.

I have some spare Charles I Tower shillings for sale.  Interested?  PM me!

I agree Tom
I bought a few from his web site and picked a couple up from him from the Midland fair.
I haven't seen him around for a while.

Without wishing the worse on a person I never knew, he hasn't passed away has he, is anyone able to contact him on landline etc ?.
If you have it and it's shiny, I lost it earlier and I want it back RIGHT now.
