Web site outage

Apologies to all for the web site outage over the last few days. It appears that a planned server reboot caused the problem; but I didn't notice straight away, as it was all working for me! After many hours of head-scratching, it turns out that the server was routing packets back to clients via a di...

Re: North West KC Group meeting - Liverpool 22 March 10-30am

When we discussed this last week we were hoping to get two committee members up there.

Re: Make a donation or leave a lasting legacy to the KC Grou

Hi Grant,

Yes, the Big Give is certainly still the best way of donating to the group. We do now have a justgiving account, but they seem to keep a much larger percentage of donations, which is why we promote the Big Give site.

Regards,

Re: NHS Cornea transplant at Leeds

Nice link, Steven; though I'm unclear on the Leeds relevance. Did you mean to post a different link?

Re: Last time posted record on profile

Steven, Where are you seeing this "last time posted" entry? I can't see it anywhere! If it's missing since the relocation to the temporary server, then that's an omission on my part - I had no idea it was even there previously! The current forum has no plugins though - if it was added by a...

Re: Newsletters

Space_cadet, As Claire has pointed out recently; when we last surveyed our members, only 3 out of about 2000 people opted for email delivery of newsletters. It really surprised me, I'll say now! I think as far as the numbers go, we could certainly start sending out 100-200 newsletters electronically...

Unfortunately, the spammers are incredibly sophisticated these days, and have pretty much infinite computing power (a.k.a. the human brain). It works like ...

Re: Newsletters

Steven, All newsletters which I have produced are now online, alas I can't go back to issue 1, as I don't have a copy of them. The previous newsletter editor hasn't had anything to do with the group for some years now. As for postage, we actually get a significant discount of our postage costs becau...
