Just a quickie to let you know that we’ve just become aware of the performance problems on the server. I’ve seen a few disturbing things go through the system log that make me suspect someone might be trying to bring the server down. Rest assured, if you are reading this and guilty, we will find you.
It could also be a problem with the system and in either case we will aim to have the problem fixed as soon as possible.
PS. a request. In the future, when you notice things are running slow for a couple of days – let us know, don’t just write about it in your diary 🙂 (by all means, complain in your diary too, but let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org because in all likelyhood – since the site’s busy time is when Steve and I are asleep – we won’t know about it unless you do). Thanks! 🙂
