Accessing your webspace
Everyone on mtheory has access to space on the web where they can create their own website or simply store files on the internet for sharing between computers. Access used to be on my default for everyone, however as many users never accessed their webspace it has been disabled for those users to improve security. Should you want access to your webspace again please get in touch with the administrator.
