The last few nights have seen brief hiccups at midnight with the site going offline for a few minutes. It doesn't seem to be anything major, but this problem seemed to have been fixed until very recently.
When did you first notice this problem starting again exactly? That could help us to work out what causes it.
Thought you guys might be interested to hear that the dev guys have looked in to these problems and (though I don't fully understand why a problem is happening) some changes we've been planning to the server set up for a while now (which I'll aim to post up the details about today or tomorrow) should mean the problem causing the slowness at midnight shouldn't happen any more once those changes are in place. The think this should happen within days, so we hope we won't have to put up with these problems for much longer.
We can possibly expect a couple of short periods of disruption to the site tonight between 11pm and 1am - each lasting for about a minute. You might not notice it, but don't be too surprised if you cannot load pages at certain times this evening.
Also, the longer period of down time I mentioned a couple of posts up has been rescheduled and is likely to happen this Thursday about 10pm - expect the site to be unavailable for up to an hour.
