Thanks, Mike.  It was
which I had been using and which suddenly became unreliable.

I have no way, that I know of, of knowing which is nearest to me.

I'll just have to try them all until one is OK for a bit.

This is where we need to focus.  Webhosts will sometimes host such projects 
for free.  We have a local one which hosts several FLOSS and Linux projects, 
but the owner doesn't like me so is probably not likely to host TDE for free.  
But I'll try to get some feelers out.

The reliable bit is crucial.  We might even get the chap I mentioned back!
