Just a short note to the fifty or so people who've emailed me (and the dozen or so who have posted the same question on the forums) asking why I haven't done any updates in the last few days. Well, it's fairly simple. There has been no news. When there's nothing going on there's nothing to tell, and rather than post irrelevant 'filler' articles I'd rather keep our news accurate and to the point. There are often lulls in news like this at different times of the year.

PS. Yes we had some downtime last night, it started as an unscheduled process hang and ended in three hours of maintenance work (some of which had been queued up for quite a while).
