The website took a break. Presumably it took a low cost airline to somewhere warm for sun, sea and sangria.

I found out on Friday afternoon, when I wanted to pick up a link to insert into a tweet. I typed in the site name and nothing happened. This is not usually cause for panic, as our internet can be a bit patchy here at the mountain eyrie. I tried some other sites. Hmmm….I typed the address into the phone. Still, nothing. When I say nothing, I mean nothing. Just a plain white screen. Perturbed, I did a search and discovered that I was seeing a WordPress server error. The website was down.
