Update: All websites and services are now back online. Contact me if you are experiencing any problems.
We’ve had some fairly major server problems this week, as many of my colleagues (and many of my friends) who I share an online home with know. We suffered some website vandalism and consequently had to take the server offline while we sorted everything out. If you look through the list of community, campaigning and small, personal websites listed below — many of which are hosted for nothing as solidarity with great community work and activism — you’ll be able to imagine the chorus of dismay that followed when we were forced to take the server offline.
This is just a quick note to let everyone affected know which sites have been restored, and which are still offline, and to apologise for all the inconvenience. Anyone I’ve talked to this week will know it has affected me as much as it has you.
I’m still working hard to bring the remaining sites back online, and once everything is back to normal I will be contacting everyone affected in person. In the mean time I will update the list below as I get the final few websites back online, but do contact me if you have been affected by all of this and want to find out the latest or if there is anything urgent I can help with.
Best wishes to everyone, and my sincere apologies — Matthew
