The answer lies in another thread posted earlier today. It seems they shut it down on Sunday for site maintenance.

Hi Stag,
Just tried to get on MN site. Could access the site but when I tried to answer a thread I got a message saying did I want to navigate from the page. Guess they are still having problems.
Regards,
John

hi all, just joined the MN site out of curiosity after reading this thread. Spent a bit of time trying to wander about, but found it not quite as user friendly as here, but that is probably me !
Also got the impression that many threads not been touched for years.
Any pointers on the best places to be looking, please ?

I can't log in now. The administrator gave me a new password, but the problem still exists.
