Lancashire - TheSpoof.com entrepreneur and Internet handyman Mark Lowton takes full responsibility for recent technical glitches on the TheSpoof.com site.
Lowton admits that he could have got things up and running sooner if he had forked out some cash to hire a real IT man instead of doing it himself.
"I'm just winging it, pulling plugs in and out, mostly trial and error. So far so good, as long as nobody gets hurt, keep my fingers crossed I say. I'm still packing groceries at Tesco to make ends meet you know."
Lowton's administrative assistant says there would not be as much down-time for writers if he spent less time capering around nude in farmers fields playing the flute while on hallucinogens.
