Just a quick note to let everyone know that the site is working again, thanks to Brain for fixing it (or just blame him, whichever you'd rather! :D).
Also, better late than never - I should have posted about this earlier, but anyway..
As some may have noticed, one server was splitting away from the network frequently. It has been removed so that no connections will go to it for the immediate future, meaning no more disruption, and we are investigating the problem more.
Thanks very much for your patience!
As always, if you have any questions, comments, or require help, feel free to poke your head into #chatspike
