Sorry about the downtime.  Another process on that box was slowing everything else down

I think we had our biggest outage ever today.   Wasn't just us.   The whole of hostinguk was down, something of a fucking PR disaster for them, as it turns out that just like us, they are buying their capacity from someone else.

That someone else had major problemos.

Crap service from the hosts, really.   Their tech support line just went straight to a dead tone.     Crossword Solver, presumably a site that shares space with Sotonians, aptly sent  a lot of cross words their way, which is why I didn't.  

All good now.  Hopefully a reminder of not knowing what you've got until it's gone.

I call a Sotonians meeting over this to brainstorm ways to extend this PR disaster to express how 7 middle-aged men couldn't post! This is an outrage. As proposee (new word bletch) I set the venue as Morden... If not Wimbledon.. 3rd option Wetherspoon's Eastleigh if beer and expenses included.

 What about the Semi-Final, Tokes?  Ideal opportunity.

Cost? Travelling time? And I'll be at the Bournemouth home game so i feel guilty about leaving the kids with Mrs Btripz for 2 days in 6...

Most of this is outweighed by the exceptional company and the chance of a showing from @Barry Sanchez and @Tokyo-Saint...
