Emergency Temporal Shift / 28.07.08

Erm, hello. Sorry if you came by earlier today and saw the old site in all its “glory” - we’re still trying to figure out what happened, but blah blah DNS blah blah not our fault blah blah server configuration issue blah blah.

We’re back now, though, and it shouldn’t happen again. Now sod off out of it.

And now I'm back again / 05.10.06

So. Hello again. For the full story of why we went offline, see this G&T post - it's the same for both sites. Have a read if it if you haven't already, and then come back here. (Short version: we're now clean of viruses, and it wasn't our fault.) But whilst I used that post to complain about our hosting company did wrong - what about what we did wrong?

A Public Service Announcement / 30.09.06

You may have noticed that this site was down on Friday evening. This is because we've been having reports that NTS was infected with the VBS/Psyme trojan. This exploits an Internet Explorer-only vunerability.

I've given the site a complete going-over, including a thorough virus scan, and I can see no infection at all. I'm therefore 99.9% confident that this is simply a case of false positives.

OD/G&T/Flange Log Downtime / 29.04.06

Just a quick note to apologise for the amount of downtime for our sister sites, Ganymede & Titan, Observation Dome, and Flange Log at the moment. We're trying to sort out the problem. No idea why we're getting Bad Gateway errors at present.

Note that G&T is currently half-asleep at the moment anyway - me and Ian are taking a bit of time out to concentrate on the redesign. More soon, with any luck - it should be pretty big...
