We had a major period of time yesterday and running into this morning, UK time, when the site was inaccessible. So was our hosting provider.

We have concluded that this was because someone had messed up a routing table, and pretty much screwed everyone over in that data centre.

As I am sure you realise, this was their cockup, but it was our arse that suffered.

Thank you for those who emailed to say "The site is down" all of which arrived when the site returned. When the domain is inaccessible that is also true for email. The sending and receiving of emails is impossible in that situation.

All you have to remember is it was a cockup, and that our arse bore the brunt of it. Their cockup, our arse!
