Quillcards Is Being Temporarily Affected By Our Web Host Rebooting Its System

This is a follow-up to our last newsletter about Quillcards being affecting by our web host working to patch vulnerabilities in Intel chips.

Our hosting company, Digital Ocean, which hosts thousand of websites, began a server reboot at 2pm UK time today.

Our site went down at 2:02pm, and it has not come back up automatically. Therefore we are going to have to manually restart it, which will not be until tonight.

Then we will also need to do some work on our setup, and we will do that after the site is running again.

As we said before, Digital Ocean is doing the reboot because of the industry-wide security vulnerabilities known as Meltdown and Spectre that affect Intel chips that are deep at the heart of many web host servers.

Update Tuesday Evening

The site is now running normally.
