I've noticed a similar phenomenon. The shop does take a long time to come up after clicking on but it does eventually appear. I do however have a high speed cable connection. Perhaps, if one does not, the wait seems interminable. If it is too long the computer may simply 'time out.' I surmise after investigating, Alan or Peter will provide an explanation and fix.

Hi there,

I've had a little look into this, and we did have some problems over the weekend with our databases, but these seem to have been sorted out (sometimes the servers get rebooted) - Also, as the shop is database driven, it loads all the required data up-front, which can sometimes make it slower than a normal flat web page..

I've just tried it out, and it's running OK, if a little slowly..

All the best,
