For those who are interested, ARRSE currently runs on two servers: 1. A relatively fandango database server that we recently purchased. 2. A pretty old web server that fell over last week for reasons that remain unclear. This function is now being provided by a 'spare' server that our hosts (www.merula.net) are kindly providing. After some debate we've decided that the web server was reaching the end of its usefulness. We've decided that the way forward is to get a new one and those kind chaps at Dell are going to be doing the honours. We're not sure when it will arrive (approx 2 weeks). We hope that it will significantly improve site speed though particularly during the day when it gets quite busy. As always we'll keep you posted but there may be some minor disruption when we get round to switching over.
