Downtime at Information Research

Readers of Information Research, and users of other services at InformationR.net will have noticed that the system was down for several days from the 5th January - the reason? Weather! My colleague at Lund, Jörgen Eriksson, tells me:

...there was an "icestorm" on the 5th of Jan, where the rain froze as it hit the ground. Together with a heavy wind this created a general chaos in the communications, lots of broken arms and legs and power cuts. So it took some time to get everything up and running after the power cuts.

So - the forces of nature triumph again :-)
