Yeah I was sure it was them. I used to work next door to them, In ParkWest business park -- (im still in the park, but moved to a different company). The Park is really badly designed and laid out, and most importantly, has about 1/3 of the power required for what is needed per building. My old company was having full powercuts that would last 1hr to sometimes 8hr outages. This was down to the fact the place was built by cowboys. I suppose a generator can only go for so long?
So yeah, if you ever think of moving your business to ParkWest, stay as far away from the idea as you possibly can

Across both live feeds? And for the extended periods that Hosting 365
have been out for??
I never really took heed of Hosting 365 before, but googling them on
this issue shows that its not the first or the second time they've had
this issue. I'll not draw any conclusions from that here.
