Re: Be honest now....

That explains it. Must of missed that service announcement yesterday. There was quite a few of them!
Erm.. I thought the game servers where already in London? If I dig around my Email I'm sure I can find a message from Josh a few years ago saying they were being moved.... Here it is:

Subject: Games Server Platform Maintenance - Monday 24th Feb

Guys,
This is going out to all the people who run games servers for me. Early Monday morning, the 24th Feb, we will be moving the  games network. The work is necessary as we will be moving one of our offices soon and all the servers hosted there are being moved. The servers are being moved to one of our Colo's in London which means there will be a 6-8 hour outage - although because of the time this will only really affect our international visitors and insomniacs.
Now I'm confused! Or actually this could explain why the servers died last July. Maybe they were moved from London back to Sheffield Huh If so I hope you are collecting the air miles for the game servers as they deserve a nice holiday with all this travelling Tongue

Are we getting any upgrades to the servers such as hardware or newer versions of Linux by any chance? Smiley

It's the new servers that are being moved down to London, the older ones are already there. They may be getting moved between suites IIRC.
