Thanks. I've sent an e-mail to the person who I think deals with it.

Drat.  2 in 2 days isn't good.  ... aaand the hosting company can't be contacted

If things aren't resolved tomorrow there should be a backup server made available so you can retrieve the start lists.

Thanks; I've got most riders saved in Excel can manually add the others. Entries closed anyway (perils of allowing last minute entries a week after ordering cards of which I have now run out) although I temporarily reopended them before the site went down

Riding a 300 DIY by GPS tomorrow, but AUK website is down and I am unable to enter.

Have emailed my DIY organiser (Chris Smith) with details and GPS file in the hope that this can be accepted as entry. Anybody have any experience of this, and any thoughts on the subject?

We're all reasonable men. Mostly. Just put in an email what you'd expect to provide on line and we'll sort the details out once the systems up.

When the web server's going through a flakey period (and after all, it is a Bank Holiday weekend coming up, so it's kinda traditional) it is actually the by-GPS entries that are most likely to fall through the cracks.  This is because whilst data (such as a normal event entry) is backed up to a 2nd server instantly, the files structure including any uploaded files is only synched once per day.

We will publish the address for the 2nd server if things get bad over the weekend.

AUK has plenty of money. Should review hosting options. In the current climate anything less than nearly 100% availability causes friction.

All hosting companies claim 100% uptime, so any change is just a pig in a poke.

Not sure who deals with it these days but I'm presuming the people who need to know have been told?

Must be that Guardian article driving traffic and interest!

It would be good for the Audax UK social media streams to let people know we're experiencing unusual demand on the website but we hope to be back up soon.

Certainly many colleagues at work spotted me as the man in yellow in the photo a la depart... that blog must have quite a few readers!
