Thanks Lily, I've sent him a pm to find out what is going on.
Joe, I tried the link you gave and that gets me to the message board ok but when I try to get into the main site from there I get the 500 internal server error again.
I've also asked my sister Eileen (42aitch) if she knows what's going on. I think she knows Ronnie, having provided him with some material in the past.
