Yesterday’s Perfomance Problems Resolved – Hopefullly!

The performance of the site yesterday (1st June) was dire, for which our apologies.  It was driving Andrea and I crazy and I am sure it was irrritating anybody else trying to read the new edition as well.  We are so sorry.

It seems to have been a server issue but neither our (normally excellent) web hosts SiteHQ, nor Rackspace which manages the underlying hardware, were reporting a problem so we are unsure quite what caused the slowness and dropouts.

Today it seems to be zipping along at its usual speed.  I have check several times this morning and all seems well.  Hopefully the problems are behind us, but once again sorry.
