Apologies: Minor outages this afternoon, all OK now...|
(Monday, August 3, 2009 - 18:24 EDT)
Just a quick note to let our readers know that the minor outages we'd experienced this afternoon should now be rectified. The site itself has been fine, the outages only affected the server we use for our (hundreds of) gigabytes of signature full-resolution straight-from-the-camera test images. The problem was traced to a faulty motherboard, which has been replaced. As a precautionary step, we've temporarily rerouted serving of the hi-res files to our main box, just to make sure all is well with the new mobo before we fully trust it. We'll likely switch back tomorrow AM, if all continues well with the image server overnight, but the change in serving should be entirely transparent to readers. Apologies for the inconvenience!
