The H2G2 Editors

Hi all, a quick note to say that we've been informed that a new version of BBC iD is going live on Wednesday 22nd June and therefore all sites that use iD services (and that includes H2G2) will not be able to use these services (logging-in, registering) for approximately one hour from about 08:45 on Wednesday morning. smiley - ok

I'm kind of surprized that they didn't "dispose" of h2g2 before this upgrade.

Gnomon - time to move on

There will undoubtedly be some disruption when we move from the BBC servers to the Noesis ones, but we hope it will just be "Login in, tick the box agreeing to the terms and conditions of the new site, away you go."
