  1. Sorry for the disruption

    We were in the process of relocating the DI website to a new server when we lost power overnight. Unfortunately we were unable to restore the server until now. The transfer has been completed and currently 2 web servers are serving the DI site - the old server displays this message. As DNS caches update, users will begin to filter onto the new server - you will know this has happened by the absence of this notice. Please note - any new posts posted to this server will not make it onto the new server.
    Details of how to speed up the DNS cache update on your computer are here: https://www.pcmag.com/how-to/how-to-flush-your-dns-cache

    Yep, we took the Ocean Jet on the day this happened. Montenegro and one of the Jaylan lines were diverted to make the rescue. All happened around 4pm. The fire had been put out when the other boats had run up aside. But all passengers with luggage were transferred, no injuries, storm in a tea cup type of thing. Made for good viewing on the beach over a couple of cold ones with the trusty binocs. What I love about living here is the amount of "Jesus ko"s "kalooy"s and urgent telephone messages to this relative or that. It's the only time someone gets their skates on. I'd like to say "t*ts on a bull", but I can't.

    I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often than it does...
