Hi Guys. Just a very quick blog post to let you know that there was a massive earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand (where SaleHoo's head office is) and the city centre is in a pretty bad way. It is currently on lock down and there is no power or access to our offices unfortunately.

We are all safe and well but ask you to please bare with us for the next few days while we try and get everything back to normal. There may be some slight delays in us responding to questions on the forum and through our support center. Please accept our apologies in advanced.

Thank you to everyone that has sent messages of support, it has been much appreciated.

    I've been lurking here awhile before registering, trying to learn as much as I can. Places online like this have been a great source of information for me. I hope to contribute in the future

    For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens (2 Corinthians 5:1) .
