Afternoon,

Sorry for the downtime this afternoon.

Migrating some data (logblock database in particular) to a different host as we were getting dangerously low on disk space, and MySQL is utterly rubbish when it comes to reclaiming disk space after deleting data; the server will be unavailable for a few hours while the dumped data is imported on the remote DB host, then all will be well again, and we'll have reclaimed 12GB or more disk space, so will be secure for some time.

UPDATE: all done, server back up.
