Temporary Closure of Site

Some of you may have noticed that this site was closed for a few days last week. This was due to a court decision in Turkey, after an application by Digiturk seeking action against the website for failing to prevent a few Bloggers using the site to stream live Turkish football matches.

We seem to be up and running again, though I'm not sure whether that means a a solution has been found or not.
