A major server failure at the company that hosts this blog meant that access to the blog was unavailable for most of yesterday (Friday 26 June). Although the site has been moved to a new server, access is still intermittent and anything that was posted on the blog yesterday was lost during the backup procedure.
The hosting company is working to resolve the problems. Ours was not the only site to be affected. We hope that normal service will be resumed as quickly as possible but the problems are outside our control. Please be patient whilst things get back to normal.
Access is available but can be painfully slow.
