DIY COW RETURNS!!!!!   5 comments

Yes indeed. UKPuzzle.com has come back to life along with the DIY COW forum. I thought at first it was just UKPuzzle that had successfully migrated to the new host, but they inform me it hasn’t transferred yet and that it’s still on Web-Mania’s servers. This is terrific news – the website AND THE FORUM will migrate in the next couple of days, but it’s available again with immediate effect; none of the sql data has been lost. Break open the champers! For now, let’s complete the current challenge here – this week’s winner can set the new challenge on the original forum.

DIY COW #109 – CURRENT   66 comments

Gazza has set the word CURRENT as this week’s challenge.

At the moment we have no way of knowing when the forum will be back online. My gut instinct is to say use the next few days to work out some clue ideas (i.e. don’t post them here yet) in readiness for ‘home’ re-opening, but if there’s no sign of that happening by, say, Tuesday evening start posting your clues here. I’ll go with consensus, though; if you feel it’s worthwhile submitting here from the off, please go ahead.

DIY COW Forum is working!!!   5 comments

Great news, and a great relief too. One or two of you may have found your way here oblivious to the old phpBB forum, so here it is: http://www.ukpuzzle.com/phpBB3/index.php

Could I ask those of you who have posted MANICURIST clues here to copy them into the proper forum? Many thanks.

Hi folks. I’m getting nowhere with the problems at the original DIY COW, so I propose some small measure of preparedness here. Read the rest of this entry »
