Just as soon as we return from our summer holidays, Lana will be opening up a Mp3 Player shop, initially selling to the UK only.

If she needs some Search Engine promotion, I can use my mystical ways to get some good Google rankings :)

Thanks for the offer :)

I think it will take about 2 weeks to set it up.

It is getting close to completion:


Everything is done and correct (including the low prices!), except none of the purchase buttons do anything. Let me know what you think.

Looks really good - if my Yepp player gives up the ghost, I'll consider visiting :)

I assume you're setting up your own online store rather than using affiliate links, right?

Initially I will use the same purchasing system as the Power Pack, later I will think about CC Merchant status.

Where's your page gone Spoon? I go to the link (been there previously) above and it looks like to me that someone else is running the site. All I get is "I'm sorry, ATC Studio Group's Web Site is currently under construction" at the top of the page, so unless you changed your name & email address...

Looks like a hack job to me. D4rn hax0rs.

your right you know, it does look like hack takeover.

but why? doesn't appear to be any rhyme or reason for it?

they got something against mp3 players?

Not hacked, here is the story.

I was getting real close to finishing, all that was needed was the Secure Server switching on. For this you need a certificate and a fixed IP address, I was given an IP address - then suddenly portablemp3s.co.uk vanished, it points to the right IP address, but from what I can tell it is a problem at my web hosting company. This other site, that now shows is also at my web hosting...

The hacking, well I saw this page the other night, since then it has been hacked!, nothing to do with me or any of my sites this is the other guys site.

I have informed my hosters, hopefully they will point it at my server, sometime soon.

Great site, a little limited in the product range, tho'.

I also missed "extra memory" in the accessories section.

Hope the new venture goes well!

All the best,

Good point darren, I have added extra memory. The choice is limited, it takes time to open channels to maufacturers.

I have requested a new IP address, got one and the site is now working (might take a few hours for the new ip address to filter through the internet).

The Shop should be fully open by the weekend, I just have to add a unique SSL certificate.

I am proud to announce that the Shop is now open for business - www.portablemp3s.co.uk
