Server down due to network issues
« on: Apr 17, 14, 09:13 AM »
Hi everybody, Sorry, the server was down for nearly 15 hours since about 5pm yesterday due to a network outage at the hosting data centre.
They have allegedly fixed it now, but you might see intermittent issues for a period of time today

This what they had to say about it 
Just a quick update on the work we’ve done to restore our network. Our Networks Operation team uncovered a bug in firmware utilized in our vendor’s hardware that caused the network issues, which impacted some of our customers. We worked closely with the vendor to establish and implement a bug fix. That fix is now being executed and propagating across the network. During this rollout, you may find some performance inconsistencies, which will resolve fairly quickly. Our entire team remains engaged and committing to fully restoring services and performance for all impacted customers.

reading  between the lines, that tells me that somebody updated a router, possibly to fix the OpenSSl bug and it all went wrong. Hopefully it will all be OK now, but I am seriously looking at new hosting for the server, because this isn't the first long outrage and I want as close to 100% reliability as I can get ( at an appropriate price)
