Website Issues

Hello, This is the first post on my new blog and new website. Over last weekend 19th May 2013 my website was hacked, I believe this was an issue with my hosting provider because there were service interuptions leading up to last weekend which was very unusual. It was an old site, I made it in 2009 and it has been reworked several times since then, so it was well overdue for replacement. 

This is my fresh design which uses the very latest version of Joomla CMS version 3. I can't praise this version highly enough in comparison to Joomla 1.5 which my old site ran on. It is a huge leap forward in terms of usability, speed and integration of modules and components that in the past had to be found and installed by the user. Also the template I am using from Joomla Bamboo is brilliant very easy to use and customise, the fonts for instance are Google Fonts, I never knew such cool fonts existed.  

The site isn't finished yet and is very much work in progress, my hope though is to have it finished completely by this Friday 24th May 2013. And hopefully I'll be able to reinstate my old blog posts as well.
