DIY and IH status

The box that housed our two main corporate sites, suffered a freak hard drive blowout, teamed with a fried board this morning.

Let me assure all DIY and IH users, this does not affect anyone using our services.

The blowout cause is not yet known, but we are working constantly to bring it back up. The server only housed the main sites. and no other services.

If you wish to speak to any of us during this time, you can reach us at the usual phone number, email address, and ticket system.

You can email me direct, at or simon at

Thank you for your patience in this matter.

Good to see you have it under control, Simon.

This kind of thing happens to the best of us. The key is how quickly and efficiently you spring into action to repair the damage. And you appear to be right on top of it.

Both websites are now back up, and fully functional.

When adding the new unix boxes, we set up 2 instant mirrors, to avert this in the future.
