Whether its down to yesterdays cyber attack or today's high volume of work, Courier Exchange is experiencing delays with its text alerts, which kinda renders it pretty much useless. Getting a text 90 mins after the event is about as useful as a very useless thing that hasn't got much use at all

So expect mtvan to be a little busier today

Must be sorted then cos i had calls over an hour after saying they'd only just had the alerts.

Maybe yours were looking online?

So what happened? I hate that kind of thing and the people that do it. Hope the guys at Courier Exchange get any attack under control (honest).

I see, I thought you meant they were under attack! That won't be what's causing their alert problems. Thanks for the link.

Strange how they ALWAYS seem to have server issues on busy days isn't it

The site has been badly programmed from the start. Then, instead of a complete overhaul, they have chosen to continue fire fighting the issues.

This is why it costs you so much to join it.

Rule 1: If the main factor in your choice criteria is price, you make your first mistake and you will pay dearly for it. Rule 2: Reactive maintenance always costs more than preventative maintenance.

Still a bit slow today, but does produce work that can be bidded on and it is up to date. They dont run jobs that are weeks old, as happens on here.
