Apologies for our enforced hiatus..

I’m sorry for the outage on Slugger from Thursday night until last night. It seems to have been a misunderstanding between us and our US server hosts. The advantage of hosting the site in the states is cost and quality of customer service. Th obvious problem is that when the site goes down in the day time over here, it can take a while to get their customer service to act. The problem was that last month we thought we’d upgraded to cope with the increase in traffic, but their billing department seems not to have been notified.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
