Following recent problems due to the machinations of those lovely folk at ph*t*b**ket, the Vault forum and multi-tentacled WordPress blog/ ‘site’ are undergoing emergency restoration work. Intention is to replace as many cover scans as possible but the job won’t be finished overnight so please bear with. Thank you for your continued support. If you’ve not done so, give our forum a lurk. You might like it.
