I also got the same "unable to contact card issuer" error when ordering some tickets on Friday night, which succeeded on the second retry. I don't know if the venue is using HSBCs systems, but there may well be a wider prober with credit card authorisation systems. There have been several large DDOS attacks against financial institutions recently.

  • Were you fooled by our ASCII 'new look'?
    For April Fools Day this year we switched to a recession-friendly white-on-black text design, which was inspired by NTK and Popbitch. We also cruelly made up the news about there being a noughts'n'crosses easter egg in RISC OS - sorry! Thanks to Alex and Justin for coming up with the idea.
