I notice on the alfalima site there has been a lot of wild speculation about what's happened to WMR's website which is offline at the moment. I remember hearing Jack advising people last weekend to use the old WMR email address so he must've known there were problems. We might have to wait to hear if WMR are on air this weekend with an explanation. Let's hope it's nothing serious!
