If you try to connect to my sites then you'll notice that they are down - that is because I am having some problems with my sites' host. Something upstream from the servers but downstream from my poor visitors is preventing access since 10 this morning. I do try to ensure that the sites are on different serves so that if one server goes down the other survives but this time there is a 'SPOF' (single point of failure) that prevents both from being accessed. So annoying. I have placed them on the best host with the best support and highest uptime I could find but still it happens. BuGgeration!
My apologies if it has caused inconvenience. I have posted this as I can't post it anywhere else, all sites being down. Doh!
All sorted - it was a routing problem caused by some part of the internet's infrastructure having a 'wobble'. It affected those whose ISPs were in some way connected via BT, Virgin and Sky's services. Took a day for them to correct it though.
