    Yeah... same here... well actually the first time I logged in fine... went to the share dealing, told it to sell shares, and then it locked right up, took almost ten minutes to execute the sale and lost me 40 quid as the shares had fallen 0.1 pence in the meantime. Tried to then make a tradeplan and it hasn't worked since. Dunno why I use them ... their online share dealing is so utterly flakey.

    Site is down, looks like a routing problem.
    Since when has the world of computer software design been about what people want? This is a simple question of evolution. The day is quickly coming when every knee will bow down to a silicon fist, and you will all beg your binary gods for mercy.

    I got through after five minutes of waiting. It said:-
    To access your accounts, please click on your account details below. Unfortunately, some information is not currently available on this page. However, the rest of your online service is working normally. We are working to restore this page as soon as possible.
    I could see my current account but savings accounts were unavailable.

    This might explain why I cant log into Interactive Investor as I belive they are HBOS backed.
