Down all evening yesterday (GMT), and Teaos is your sig misbehaving?

EDIT: It is. All the spoiler boxes are kaput.

Well we're back up now. I'm back from Galapagos now so I can investigate a little better. I've fixed the issue that was preventing access now and we'll have to see if it holds. I've a few other things to look at before I say it's 'fixed' but it at least should work for now. We will have some downtime this weekend for upgrades but it shouldn't be too long. As for the spoilers I know why it changed but I don't know why it's different. Very odd.

OK, another outage. This time we've tracked the cause. One of the search bots on MSN was hogging all the connections to the server. The bot has now been banned.

It's skynet, calling it now.
Zagreus sits inside your head,
Zagreus lives among the dead,
Zagreus sees you in your bed,
And eats you when you're sleeping.

Me too, the end of the world truly cometh!

Yes, presumably between about 6:30pm and 8:30pm on Thursday (GMT). It was at 8:30 that I slew the beast.
