OK here's the news. It looks to me like the server folk have updated their MySQL server and there are a few compatibility issues. Specifically (for those of you who know sql) it wasn't understanding the 'order by' statement when placed within union statements and so was ordering everything backwards. I've removed the union and it works right however the only knock-on effect is that until I figure this out stickies will not appear at the top of boards.

Random

The word from the support guys:
On Tuesday we were forced to perform emergency upgrades to MySQL and PHP to resolve a number of stability issues and prevent against DoS attacks of late. The version of PHP should now be updated to 4.4.1 and MySQL is 4.1. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you by performing this update.
Ah well. I'm trying to figure out a workaround for the code and maybe it'll all be a bit stabler from now on. Fingers crossed!

Edit: Done! Let me know if you get any issues.

Swoop was bold enough to comment:

Swoop, go and stand in the corner.

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - http://www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.
