The website’s been out of action for most of the weekend due to tech issues. Sorry.
In case you’re interested on Saturday there were server problems with the web hosting company. Soon after some of the software that helps make this website happen got stuck in a loop and it started pinging the server with more questions than we’ve got for Team Sky. This sent things into frenzy so the hosting company put a restriction on the website to stop people from browsing: you might have seen a prompt to enter a username/password… which of course nobody had.
Loyal readers might have noticed the occasional crash here in recent months and it’s always taken minutes to resolve. This time it took much longer to get help and so the site was offline for most of the weekend. Hopefully things stay upright for the rest of the week.
- A note for anyone posting comments: I’ll try to respond as usual but any comments posted between now and some point later in the week could prove volatile, they might be online for a few days but could get lost later on. Presumably nobody is leaving a comment expecting it to be carved in stone for perpetuity but the tech issues mean a few responses between now and later this week could be lost.
