I thought I was going to let you all down but fortunately I managed to get back online. My computer just threw me off the internet and wouldn't let me reconnect, I tried restarting the computer, checking that all the leads were ok but to no avail. In the end I think the problem was simply that the internet cable was hot, I took it out for a while and then it worked when I reconnected. It was my last resort aswell.
That was such an interesting story, don't you think people?
