    Seems to be working now.
    Quantum physics is a bit of a passion of mine. It's extraordinary. There's a branch of mathematics that is based on lunacy, and that's wonderful.

    Often this happens from the administrative password not being changed or is not complex enough.

    Might be worth checking that they have addressed this..

    Alternatively find a good hosting site that provides top level security, such as the one where ABF lives. Let me know if you're interested.
