Yaks account was fixed as soon as I got his email. Apologies. Confirmation was sent to let me know all is ok. Be assured any problems are rare and are attended to as soon as I am alerted.
Many thanks yak and all members for your essential support. Without it simviation could not exist.
The problem was caused by a server issue at the weekend. I am pretty sure I have fixed all memberships for that time.
Although email has been sent to all effected members I can find -- if I missed anyone please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org
