Well it was again but not the forum http://www.britbike.com/forums/ubbthreads.php it is blank, do you have any ideas why it is blank? thanks

You'd have to consult your web logs to see if it returns anything; but the software just won't "stop working", something server side had to be happening since it was working without issue.
Another issue could be a networking issue between your computer and the server (which a Traceroute would uncover), but there isn't anything we could test, we're not even in the same country, so the path from where I am vs where you are in relation to your server would be completely different.
