Since 23 September 2020, there have been problems with some browsers when seeking to access L&RUK. Although our website security certificate had been renewed, server software problems prevented this information being conveyed to some web browsers. Early in October, we took the decision to migrate the web site to a different internet service provider (ISP), and through our IT consultant, the process of migration has been in progress since then. This has been a lengthy process in view of the size of the files associated with L&RUK, and the involvement of a number of third parties in relation to various permissions required, in addition to the mechanics of the transfer and the subsequent testing. At last, normal service is gradually returning. We should like to thank everyone for bearing with us during what has been a fairly stressful experience and, in particular, John Lagrue for managing the transfer to the new ISP.
