Technical Notice

As you know, for the last few months (and more), this blog has been falling over like a particularly clumsy dipsomaniac on a bouncy castle. This was essentially because the server couldn’t take the weight of traffic; and, when the server fell over, it tended to corrupt and crash database tables.

Over the last 24 hours, we have completed the switch to a new hosting company, with burst-able resources, that should ensure that this blog stays firmly in the land of the living. In the course of this transfer, some comments may have been lost—we do hope that you’ll forgive this unavoidable problem.

Obviously there will be some fine-tuning to do—both from an aesthetics perspective, and a performance angle. If you do spot anything behaving weirdly, please leave a comment here and we’ll try to sort it out as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience over the last day or so; and now—onwards and upwards!

Regards,

DK
