Below are the complete SickthingsUK news archives going back to 2004 when I first added news to the front page.
NOTE: The further back you go, the less likely it is that links and images will work, because the original sites no longer have the articles.
The STUK message board is currently down after what appears to be an attempt to hack the board and website causing 100% CPU usage on the server which promptly crashed. I'm working on a solution now but can't give a timescale for the forums to be back. Hopefully everything else is back up and running though. I will update when I know more.
