It's not often we get to write a headline like that.

As some of you will already be aware, a volcano in Iceland has erupted in a rather epic fashion worthy of Roland Emmerich, spewing out a gigantic ash cloud and grounding almost all European air flight.

Nothing like this has ever happened before. Flights are still grounded for the next 24 hours and nobody seems to know exactly how long it could last, as the volcano is still spewing.

There may be delays on FXhome shipments during this period while FedEx work out ways around the disruption, so apologies to anybody waiting for a delivery. If you're purchasing FXhome software you still get instant download access, though, so you don't need to wait for the mail to return to normal.

More information about the volcanic ash cloud can be found here.

Update: FedEx are now starting air shipments again as the ash cloud has cleared a little in some parts of Europe. There may be still be some delays as the backlog is sorted. This doesn't affect European shipments, which go by land.
