Site may have been unavailable for a while today due to server/software updates (Apache, MySQL & PHP)

Recent version upgrade appears to have rendered the quote functions inoperative, being looked at.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Over the next few days our hosting company is moving us to a new server, hopefully this will be seamless but life is not always that way.

Due to some browsers, i.e. Google Chrome & Internet Explorer, now being reluctant to show verylittlehelps.com correctly or not at all, VLH will be converted from http://...... to https://...... this will make VLH a more secure site.

After the change it is recommended all bookmark or favourites entries be change to or replaced to include the 's' following the http,  i.e. https.

During the upgrade to a secure site some problems have been encountered with the anti-spam software, that is why we have been getting a large amount of (p**n) spam.

Until we can fix the problem new registrations are stopped and any spam posts are deleted and the membership of the member responsible is deleted.

It is still the desire of VLH to have none of it on the site.
