Downtime, sorry.

Gradwell (my web host) is having some major issues with its infrastructure.  The net result is periods of slowness, no response or broken page loads.  I’m sorry.  It’s not just affecting this site, but the other sites I host, and some of those are hosted for other people.  I apologise to all those people.  I am considering alternative arrangements, but inertia is a bitch and while Gradwell is having issues isn’t a good time to start trying to transfer things away anyway (unless it goes on).  They are rejigging their kit and making some pretty major changes over this weekend to try and smooth things out, we’ll see how it goes.

Until then, if you get issues with any of the sites I host, please wait a little while and give it another try.  Thanks for your patience.


My web host has just made me aware of some upcoming downtime.

Essential Maintenance
On Sunday 18th (January) we need to perform some maintenance in our data centre in London. This will cause some services to be stopped during the hours of 11am – 6pm. The services which will be affected are:

All VoIP customers on lon-pbx-1/2/3 will be unable to make and recieve calls from thier phones, including any huntgroupsetc, will be unavailable for a period of time during the window of maintenance.

All customers web services running on lon-file-3 (/home6) will be unavailable for a period of time during the window.

Other services may be affected during this time and we apologise for any inconvience caused.

That includes me.  So, no web service during those times (UK times).
