If in doubt, flat out

Our top techies have been working away all weekend to add some rather crucial speed to the site. Following two days of watching Star Wars, playing online games and eating Skittles, they’ve done the near-impossible. This morning you should be seeing several lean, mean, fighting machines serving up pages faster than ever.

It’s all thanks to additional traffic bashing the flip out of our servers. We’ve had a huge increase in visitors recently. At some points we’ve seen double the amount of hits as last year, so apologies if you’ve seen a slight slow-down at peak times but a huge THANK YOU for making us your daily smartphone news site thing. We love you, baby, and we’ve thrown more coals on the fire to get things shifting quicker.
