… And we’re back

So, we’re back from a bit of an unscheduled break for my web server. The hosting company had a bit of a problem with disks, so my VM has been out of action for a week or so.

Actually had a trio of hardware failures over the festive period (2 hard disks and a graphics card), which just goes to show that checking backups (and restores!) is very important and not to be put off…
