Apologies for the login slowdown & brief outage
My apologies for the slowdown on logins this afternoon for a bit over half an hour, and the subsequent short outage as we resolved the problem. I caused it, in part while fixing another problem. We're working on finding the underlying problem, but it's a knock-on from the recent upgrade, and there's still a chance that you might see short outages. Of course that's the very last thing I want to see happening; if we do have to have the system offline, then we try to organise it at the low points unless it's an emergency.
Sorry once again.
