      Upcoming Maintenance Work 4th January 2008

      During the above period we will be performing maintenance on our Manchester based Server, Jupiter.

      This is to install hardware upgrades to our webserver, which will provide us with additional resillience, and will help ensure future network stability.

      During the time window there will be a brief outage (less than 30 minutes). After completion of this work, you may experience up to 60 minutes of slow serving web pages, whilst the data replicates itself.

      We apologise in advance, but this is a necessary addition that we need to implement.

      This has been brought forward to approx. 10 minutes time. The Hosting Company have an open opportunity and we have accepted.

      Sorry for the downtime.

      This work has now been completed, sorry for the short notice. You may find that the website is unresponsive for up to an hour.

      All seems fine here as well

      I have to say the quality of service from our hosts Dedicated Server | Dedicated Hosting | Dedicated Servers | Melbourne.co.uk is second to none. We only ordered the upgrade at about 3.17pm this afternoon, and it has already been done
