Welcome to Slugger…

A warm welcome to readers from Chris Hitchen’s website. We’re mostly focused on Northern Ireland, with the odd adventure into the outside world. We hope you’ll stick around for a while and enjoy the craic!

    Just a general question if I may – I’m looking for an article wrote earlier this year for this site about the New Republican Forum, but I’m having trouble locating it. Anyone able to help?

    unfortunately the site crashed at the end of August. We had to move to a new US server. The UK hosts tell us that although the original site is still there, we can’t touch it with the version of MT software we were using, as a glitch in it would crash all the other sites on that shared server.

    They are happy to move it onto a dedicated server, but it would have to be for a year (even though we’re not planning to use it at all other than to rescue the missing archives). For which they propose to charge us a cool £1000.

    Until such times as the peace process money tree shakes off a few thousand golden leaves in our general direction, I’m afraid the full archives of Slugger must remain hidden from our public (and from us)!
