Apologia

We're human -- we have server problems too, you know

To all our readers: More than a few of few will have noticed the erratic (not to put too fine a point on it) performance of The Register over the last few days. Such has been the rapid growth of The Register and the Empire of the Vulture, that it became necessary to upgrade our server, and much of the software infrastructure behind it. This of course sounds like a very good idea -- until you actually have to do it, as some of you have witnessed. So, we'd just like to apologise for any incovenience this has caused, and thank you sincerely for your patience. Normal service will not only be resumed shortly, but we hope the enhancements we are making will ensure The Register will become even faster at bringing you the hottest news stories and the most incisive industry comment the Web can offer. The Register Team
