Up, down, up, down… down… and still down…

Thursday, November 27th, 2008

First up, apologies to everyone who’s been trying to visit us over the last week and were simply greeted with a Database Error.

Our “service provider” (hoho) ixwebhosting.com have had some serious problems, apparently, with their MySQL server.  Seemingly unfamiliar with the concept of a live/standby system, tech support simply took it offline and left our site (and many others) dangling uselessly like a gimpy limb. Not at all impressed.

Still! We’re back now, and we’re staying up or Twiggles is going to hit the syrup of figs and do a low-level flypast over IX HQ.

Son-of-a-biscuit

So Head in the Clouds (and many other sites) got hacked on Sunday, and some redirection code was inserted into the site which sent unsuspecting RSS Feed readers to a MalWare site in Moldavia.

We have now corrected this problem (with little help from our ISP I’m sorry to say) so it just remains for me to apologize if you suddenly found yourself on some strange new site!

If anyone a) lives in Moldavia and b) does cheap assassinations, please contact Twiggles and Cobbe. They may have a job for you.

Twiggles and Cobbe are back, and as you can see, feisty as ever.

But I hope you enjoyed the Eggs earlier in the week- we’ve got quite a few of their strips lined up; we just need to decide whether to post them on here or give the Eggs their very own site.
