If Simon was still here, he'd be getting just as frustrated with all the "when's the site coming back" messages as the rest of them are.
Would probably have helped them to not randomly change the URL so anyone visting tv-ark.org.uk is now greeted with a server not found message. I imagine some people would see that and think it's now completely dead.
Um, there isn't a "Server not found" message, it's just the "Apologies for the delay" message they've had up for a while with FB and Twitter links. They don't seem to have changed the address.
