Apologies to all for the extended downtime these past couple of days. We (as you probably know) exceeded our monthly bandwidth quota and it ended up taking quite a while for our hosting providers to respond to my support request and top it back up. This event has highlighted two problems in my mind.
One, is that it has taken far too long for our current host to get this sorted out. I guess that perhaps they may have been extra busy these past few days, but even so, a simple email explaining that situation would have been helpful.
Two, and probably more importantly, it looks like we need more bandwidth to prevent this from happening again.
So I think the time has come for us to move on and upgrade to a bigger and better host. That will then allow us the freedom to use more bandwidth intensive features (such as a hosted gallery or a wiki if needs be) if we ever have the desire to do so. I’m still looking through options, but overall I think it is going to be a good move for the site.
Thanks again for persevering, and I’ll let you all know when it’s time to move!
