Thanks for the tip. I might try jumping the pond then!

Normally it gets sorted pretty soon when it goes down, but its E3 week and all the PCG staff are rather busy.
Hopfully it will be back up soon
Ah, ok. All the posts I read on the forum referred to the UK server being down and no-one knowing when it would be back. I didn't appear that it had any up-time. I'll keep an eye out for it on a regular basis. In the meantime, I'll probably try kernalk's suggestion above. Thanks!
