Unannounced downtime

Unfortunately you may have noticed up to 120 seconds of downtime today whilst we restarted our main servers. We’re sorry that we couldn’t give you any warning of this downtime but this was due to a very serious security announcement made today affecting large amounts of servers worldwide which necessitated an immediate server upgrade. We had to make the call that a short unannounced downtime was the lesser of two evils compared to having our server security compromised. We apologise for the inconvenience and trust you understand.
