We apologise to you, faithful reader, for any turbulence you may have experienced today. Our no-good hosts tried to upgrade to a new web platform (supposed to resolve all those downtime issues) but it didn’t work:
Unfortunately, during the migration process we identified an issue which was causing the new webserver platform to become overloaded and, for a period of time certain websites were either unavailable or running very slowly. Our migration process was being very closely monitored and as soon as our engineers realised the extent of the issue we implemented our roll-back plan. This roll-back plan has now been completed and your website has reverted to running on the original f2s webserver platform.
We regret that some data loss may have been incurred in the period between 12:30 and 16:00 today and that you may find that database updates during this time have been lost, we sincerely apologise for this and any inconvenience that this may have caused you.
So there may be more interweb turbulence for us in the near future…
