Wobbly day, down tonight

After a bit of a crappy slow day, the site's down this evening... or really slow, depending on your luck.  We're working with IT to get it up & running again, so please bear with us :)

I was thinking about the comments we sometimes get when the site's down.  "Move to a better host" being the usual throwaway comment - well, you're unlikely to get a host that will guarantee more than 99% reliability for your site.  When you then calculate that 1% of a year is 3.65 days, you start to realise that our occasional short outages aren't actually that bad... just annoying because we're all addicted!
