The strange comings and goings of Slugger have no doubt been as disturbing for you as they have been for me. Our bandwidth levels rose exponentially as our readership increased in the period up to and after the general election – more than 5,500 unique visitors on the day the Westminster votes were counted. We outstripped our original limits by quite a way. Touch wood, we have upgraded from 30 to 45 gig monthly bandwidth limit, which should give us enough slack for a few months at least. In the meantime, please continue to play the ball and take pleasure in playing the game!
And put a penny or two in the donation button to help us keep the service free from similar hitches in future!
