You were lucky, I’d have given anything for a response like that. When I were a lad we had to learn machine code to operate computer and if we didn’t we’d get thrashed within an inch of our lives. But try telling the youth of today and they won’t believe you.

It reports the problem to be at line 57 (though yes that can be a misnomer - eg a fault is at a preceding ling but is not manifested until the code is run and the fault occurs later on in the code - just like a nail might go though my tyre, but the tyre doesn't become noticably deflated until half a mile down the road)

It is a long time since I did any coding but this date/time format seems odd - "MMMM yyyy", shouldn't it be "d mmmm yyyy" or "mmmm d, yyyy" ?

It’s not dead, it’s just resting.
I must stop quoting and paraphrasing Monty Python.

It is being investigated... Probably to find the wall switch to turn it off and on again... ;-)

Thanks for reporting this.
We use a third-party service for the digital magazine and it appears our SOS user accounts are not talking the right language today!

The web team are on the case.
