    I notice that the SL site’s free replay of RUK races seem to have disappeared (even "archived" ones).

    Does anyone know any more about this removal?

    Thanks David – a further search has revealed that they are indeed all still there, as you say, available under "video form" here:

    Must have been a temporary hiccup as a look at the ‘Full Results’ section shows the little camera icons are all there this evening.

    Rob, thank you – with that clue I worked out what was happening.

    They’ve changed the location of the "camera" images to a directory which I had blocked with Adblock (Firefox) and so I couldn’t see them! All back nicely now…

    (Might help anyone with a similar setup who’s experienced the same).

    I threw up a little bit when I read the thread title…

    The Sporting Life website is an amazing free resource, provided by the devil of the moment, News International. I opened a SKYBET account, use-it-or-lose-it.

    My apologies for raising everyone’s blood pressure!

    SL re-addressing their image directories might have been the first shot in a war by heavily billboarded sites against that great add-on, Adblock. I hope not, because it was a pain to have to alarm everyone and then track down what was happening.

    It is a great, free resource though.
