Kelvin apologises


We apologise to our regular visitors who may have experienced problems with the website over the last couple of days. 

The fact is that Kelvin the hamster escaped from his wheel on Tuesday, hid under the sofa and refused to come out.

It seems the poor chap has been feeling put upon recently due to the increasing amount of traffic as a result of the popularity of the Cooling Post website.

In the end it took us six hours to coax him out and only then after we had promised to provide him with a bright shiny new wheel and a plush new home.

While he settles in visitors might still experience slight disruption over the next 24 hours but after that he’s promised to run a lot faster and work a lot harder.

In the meantime, we (and Kelvin) apologise for any inconvenience.
