IFfy Web site lives again

Bankety bunk

If.com - the Halifax's Internet bank - is working again after going titsup for the last four or five days. Thankfully, normal service was restored last evening. So far so good.

So, what went wrong?

A spokeswoman told The Register: "Some specialist code caused problems with our user profile database which made the database unusable under load." ®
