Angry Man with PC

Sincere apologies to our regular visitors, who will have found that Haddenham.net was inaccessible from late yesterday afternoon (Monday 11th November) until about the same time the following day.

Our community website is hosted on servers that are part of a major data centre located near Manchester. Your editor was informed yesterday that a major outage had been caused by a cabling fault at that data centre.

Unfortunately, such problems are out of our control. Apparently, thousands of websites are hosted at the same group of data centres, and so yesterday's technical fault had major implications for many UK-based websites.

Thankfully, this is a rare event — our first outage since the community website was re-launched in June 2012.

We are delighted to be up-and-running again now, though. Please make us your Homepage!
