Dear FBC Members,

It is with much regret that I have to inform you that the FBC Website will be shutting down. The reason for the end is multifold. The main reason the software running this site is very out of date and no longer supported. It means that the server it is running on is also out of date, leaving it open to attack. I tried moving it to another server, but it will not run. Sad

Some of you might have noticed the most recent hack when visiting the site being greeted by an Arabic Chat site? That is if you went to the root of the FBC, i.e. instead of, which was an automatic redirect. Well, that is what I spend the morning on clearing up, and there is no guarantee they won't be back.

I appreciate that the FBC has become a 'home' for many members, and I am sad to have to bring this to an end on the website. I have worked on alternatives and did a pilot with another site, but it just wasn't working for the people taking part.

As many of you will also know, the activity on sites like this has declined with the social media sites offering many other options. In our 'hay day', we were registering on average 30 new members a month, now it is a couple at the max.

So the good news is that the FBC will live on but only on Facebook. If you don't have a Facebook account, I would urge you to register for one, even if it is just for the FBC Group.

The website will be taken down at the end of the month (subject to no further hacks), after which a redirect will be taking you to the Facebook group.
