As you may have noticed, YWO was offline for most of the day. This is because our hosting provider is about to be merged into another provider (both owned by the same company).

Shaun and I are currently evaluating how this will affect YWO. At this point, we may have some downtime in the coming weeks, but hopefully the transition will go smoothly. I've backed up everything on the site just in case.

I, for one, can finally rest easily.

Of course, this really captures the Easter spirit, doesn't it? YWO goes down, but is ressurected soon after?

As for me, the site was absent for a very short period, because there was a night around here.

I was about to chuck my wi-fi machine thing out the window. Oh the things I'd do without YWO...

FYI: Andy will make another backup of YWO at the end of the week just so we don't lose anything in the event of a bad transfer.

I was at a wedding, so I noticed nothing.

The backups are a relief though, taa Andeh.

I think my complete lack of allure has repelled that occasion from happening.
