Would have added this to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=151137.0 but not able to post there yet.

The site was "currently offline" again for a while, after it came back I attempted to deposit some bitcoins.

Clicked "Bank Transfer", then entered bank details, then on the next page entered the amount in pounds. After clicking for the next page an error message is given that sounds like a code error rather than a message to a user. I've PM-ed piuk with full details.

Have done this on Firefox as well as Chrome.

That this happens just after entering bank details is a cause for concern.

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin-Qt is the only known safe implementation of a full node. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)
