Server hardware issues

Apologies to all, members and public. We have been experiencing some website outages over the last couple of weeks. At the moment things are stable and the rebuild of the site from prior crashes/corruptions/losses has almost been completed. For the short term we are looking at some newer hardware, and for the midterm are looking at other alternatives. Please bear with us as we go through this process.
