Sorry to folks who noticed the server was unavailable from ~0100 until ~0900 this morning. A power glitch in the Wellington CBD had a, shall we say, negative impact on the network provider i'm connected through. More details under BlakJak.net Administrivia as they come to hand.
It was flagged that the website was unavailable for a period last evening.
This was caused by an issue with our DNS services host (DiscountDomains).
Apologies if anyone noticed the disruption!
The Wellington VHF Group would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family all the very best for the Holiday Season. Here's to much more fun in the radio world in 2009!
For those who noticed the site was down for a coupla days this week, good news! The last outage was the catalyst to finally get services for vhf.org.nz moved onto a newer, more stable (and more accessible) system. So hopefully things will be fairly solid for a while at least :-) Apologies for the inconvenience (again)..
A quick note to say that the site has undergone some maintenance. Among other things, webform contacts now require a Captcha-based image-interpretation step to reduce abuse.
If anything doesn't work, plase hit 'Contact Us' and let the webmaster know.
PS: Apologies for the downtime between Sunday Afternoon and Monday Evening. This was due to circumstances beyond our immediate control and we regret the loss of service.
