Help

29/09/2022
We expect disruption to services from midnight (0:00) Beijing time on 29th September 2022 due to maintenance work on the host university network. Users may wish to try the alternative server options during this time; it is hoped a limited service will be continued via s1 / s2 in the App's drop-down menu.  HD Version 1.30 should select the new server automatically.   We apologise for any inconvenience.
