Server outage – back to business as usual

Crash!The eagle-eyed among you who spotted the brief server outage earlier this evening will be pleased to hear everything is back to full working order.   For those that are curious, the cause was one of our other sites that resides on the same server – UKattraction.com.   This site has been performing exceptionally well in search results of late and, in short, the traffic to that site (and the bot activity associated with that) just became too overwhelming, causing MySQL to crash.   The server has now been re-booted and I’m pleased to say everything  is back to normal.   Thanks for your patience.
