Hi All,

As you've probably noticed, we did some pretty major work upgrading both hardware and software of the site on Tuesday. There are still a few things we need to make adjustments, fixes, and improvements to, so we're afraid there will be patches of downtime over the coming days to facilitate this continuing work. We'll try to keep these periods as short as possible, and if we can, do them when the site is quieter.

There are some performance, user-experience, and management items we want to work on sooner rather than later, and as such we plan to take the site offline for a period tomorrow afternoon (Saturday 2021-03-13). We'd prefer to give accurate timings for the outage, but it's difficult to pin down as there are several complicating factors, so we'd rather not give a window that i) we might not make, and/or ii) might need to stretch. We'll try to get back online as soon as possible, and as things progress will update a notice on the front page with relevant information.

We're very grateful for your patience while we sort out the remaining bits & pieces of what's been a pretty major overhaul.

All the best,

ASN Admin Team

Update: we were down from 15:00 until a few minutes ago. We don't [at the moment, touch wood, et cetera] plan any more downtime today.

Work will continue over the coming days, if we need to take the site offline again we'll give as much and as detailed warning as we can. Thanks for bearing with us.
