Website recovered!!

Well - with NO information whatsoever I've finally managed to recover my hacked website. I've lost everything that was on the site, but that's no great loss - at least I can rebuild. I've already created a completely new website which will dedicated purely to our quiz nights. Appropriately enough it's called My original site - - will now be a longer term proposition, and will be reconstructed extremely carefully. I want to avoid as much as possible anything that will give hackers easy access. I have already put in direct links to the site, as well as to our Quiz Nights Facebook page. On the Quiznights site I've put in links to an external contacts page, and an external Mystery Picture entry form. Phew!

The Tempest Arms, Tuesday 11 July

Copied from the: "Quiz Nights with James Wilson" Facebook page:

An excellent quiz at the Tempest last night - and a VERY close-run thing too! Top 2 scores were 62 and 63. Bottom Wanderers JUST pipped Real Ale Madrid to the top spot. Howard of Bewildered has chosen a couple of next week's rounds - more on that on Friday!
