as you may have noticed, we had about 25 minutes down time earlier today.
This was caused by a hard-disk failure on our database server.
That drive is about to be replaced. This will be happening online, so the site shouldn't go down again, but it may result in some slow page loads.
It shouldn't take more than a few hours to rebuild, and I'll update this post when everything is back up to 100%.
Thanks for your time, and apologies for any inconvenience caused.
