Short outage this morning - apologies

I woke up a bit later than usual this morning and found that the site was not accessible.

It turns out there was a load surge on the server, which has now been rectified. I think the problem may have lasted for about an hour - so sorry to anyone who tried to access the site in this time.

The hosting support staff are investigating.

Meanwhile, I think we're all set to move to our new server and this may happen later tonight. Probably sooner the better!

Ian

Yes - it may have only been 10-15 minutes after all.

It wasn't long. I was up checking the sky conditions. It went out just as I got up and was back before I went back to bed.

Re: Short outage this morning - apologies

It seems that a rather over-enthusiastic indexing bot from a rather obscure (but apparently legitimate) company based in The Netherlands overloaded the server, indeed the same thing happened this morning before the server move.
