Re: Is Apterous down?

Still can't get on. Tried uninstalling, reinstalling, installing old versions, adding to exception list, disabling any checks I can, IE, Firefox and Chrome. Any advice?

Re: Is Apterous down?

Any idea how to get Java to let me on from? I've tried adding that IP address to the exceptions but it still won't let me start the game

Re: Post your audition/filming/transmission dates here

When have finals for the first series in the year been in the past? I'm also hopefully in the next series (passed audition in August, but no date yet), and potentially away for half of May. (Again, checking in case things go well)
