Finally, at the second time of jumping through all Yahoo's hoops, I got some at Yahoo that fixed the problem and I now believe that Yahoo has unblocked this IP so there should be, I hope, no more problems.

Note that you may still see emails mistakenly labeled as spam so be sure to check your spam box and then label site emails as valid.  In Yahoo mail, select your spam folder, then tick all SB emails and then click not spam button in the top bar.  For gmail the process is similar, click folders expand arrow in left hand side menu to reveal spam folder.  Click spam folder to view spam emails.  Tick all SB emails and click "not spam" bottom at the top.  Note do this for all SB emails to train the filter to accept them as valid even if the emails are old and you plan to delete them (i.e. delete from inbox not spam box).

Note: Yahoo users are still blocked. Anyone using Yahoo email cannot receive emails from this site.  Sign up for gmail instead.

After more research it looks like the whole issue of email blocking was a combination of Yahoo and me hitting the flush queue button a tad too often.  Hitting the button caused a hiccup that made other ISPs also block this site.  Those blocks were quickly removed once the other ISPs were contacted.

All users with Yahoo email address please read it all!

Due a hiccup in the email setup this site got temporarily blocked by BT internet and Yahoo.  BT internet was quickly fixed in an hour or 2 after entering the error in their page for that purpose.  Yahoo do NOT have a page to tell them of errors and the saga with Yahoo is still ongoing owning to Yahoo living up to English dictionary definition "a rude or noisy person" - a dumb bunny as we might also say.  Despite emails from this site having the correct spf, ptr, and being signed with dkim Yahoo say

The broadband rollout page has again changed and again the web designers fail to redirect links and so have broken the Seagey exchange link in the previous news, however the top link still works.  The process now is to enter your post code which for Sutton Benger says we are still "Future Deployment", until that changes there is no expected date.  However, the map, I believe since it has few towns marked, suggests we are in the expect solution by spring 2016.  Two years later than when the project was first announced.

The 2 of the links on the previous broadband news item are now broken and Wiltshire Online web designers haven't been polite (or savvy) enough to redirect the links so here is a new link.  The timescales quoted in the original press release have all changed.  The original fibre coverage map has been replaced by one without any roads or many towns so it is not certain SB will now get fibre.  If it does happen it might be as late as Spring 2016 rather than the end 2013 on the earlier map.  The status for Seagry Exchange is "The exchange area is currently under evaluation for the Wiltshire Online Programme.".  Rather disappointing given what was promised in the early press releases.

For those who didn't know, Sutton Benger and other villages around are scheduled to get fibre broadband late this year (2013) according to this map.  This is part of a scheme funded by Wiltshire Council.  Latest news on this can be found here and at the bottom of this page you can register to get informed when the update page changes.  According to the update page Royal Wootton Basset will be able to order fibre spring 2014 so it looks like there has been some slippage from the end 2013 date on the map.  Still better late than never.

As the village has been leafleted by adverts for buying gold it's worth point out that there are 31g in a tr oz so the "9ct up to £300 per tr oz" of the flyer works out as up to £9.67 /g.  A visit to Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter (parking is 70p/hr) would get over £12/g at today's (20/2/2013) prices.

We're all aware, painfully, how much the cost heating oil has increased but are we all aware that it is now more than electric.  Current price is near 60p/l (ex VAT) where as cheapest E7 night time is 5.2p.  Heating oil is 10.35 kWhr/l which means you need a condensing boiler (93% efficiency) and oil at 50p/l to beat that.

Sutton Benger and Christian Malford Oil Club (group heating oil buying syndicate) is now on this site.  In future the club will run from here so if you want to be part you need to register then email admin to ask to have oil club added to basic membership.  See Oil Club FAQ for answers to any questions.  The change saves work the oil club organisers (who after all do this for free) as well as giving users more features.
