    Default TNA website down?

    Hi all, I am having difficulties to acces site www.nationalarchives.gov.uk for while...
    Anyone else has met recently the same problem or it is my local problem? Other websites are working fine.

    TIA

    Hello All,
    I have no idea if it is connected or not, but on Friday mid afternoon I had similar problem accessing the CWGC site, but in late afternoon it became OK.
    My thought was that maybe it was due to the summer high temperatures.
    TNA still not right a few minutes ago.
    However there is a note on the TOCH forum about problems with another forum/website that is Russian I think(?),
    See here -

    Hi Alex,

    I suppose it would be something different - as also mentioned on the TOCH - Russian sites are specific and sometimes dangerous.

    Anyway I am still getting runtime error while trying to access TNA site:-(

    Pavel (et al),

    Us Met Peeps made a living by taking lots of readings/measurements, plotting them, looking for patterns in the plots, and then prognosticating (some better than others!!!) what would happen to those patterns.
    I use a number of sites that are available 24/7, and that display regular hourly updates. I use a number of other sites which should be available 24/7 but are only updated as/when individual contributors post new information. Both of the sorts of sites can only function if the soft/hardware (programs, servers, relays, etc, etc,) continues to operate satisfactorily, and if there is continual on-site technical support in the event of a failure of any part of these complex chains.

    A pattern is beginning to emerge.

    In the past, if a site "went down" it was only 'out' for a short while - the resident 24/7 programmers/techies sorted it out.

    Nowadays - it seems - the programmers/techies are only there during 'normal working hours' and from 'Monday to Friday' (give or take the various religious holy days!).

    If I site "goes down" on, say, a Friday it can, currently I have observed, be the next Monday before it is returned to normal. This is not only in UK but in some heavily used and important aviation/Met sites in USA/Canada which are also afflicted.

    Presumably this is because programmers/techies, if kept on-site (or even 'on-call'), are very expensive?

    Has anybody else noticed this?

    TIA

    Twitter? I never use it or Facebook so I would have never known. Sadly I have a life.
