As you may be aware, this blog has been unexpectedly down 27 hours of the past 32 hours. We suspect this outage was due to a soft failure of the power supply but analysis of this problem is difficult and still ongoing.
Currently the blog is hosted in a different location than usual and does not have the benefit of the usual remote management infrastructure (nor is it in the care of the usual admins team, so there is no timezone diversity for its system management either).
The service will be moved to a TNF system in the near future (not as a reaction to the outage; the current housing is a stopgap measure fixing performance problems the blog experienced in its earlier incarnation until the new TNF owned system is deployed).
In the meantime please be patient should you experience any further outages.
