Apologies if, like I did, you attempted to access Between The Wheels this afternoon and found the site off the air. Our site is hosted on a virtual server in the Amazon EC2 cloud and Amazon appear to have had network difficulties for a period of time.

I don't know how long the interruption to service persisted, but my Echo Dots, and those of thousands of other people were also affected. Happy to see that everything's working properly again now.

Yes, I noticed that. I could access through 4g, but not from my home broadband. I had issues that were BT/AWS related (probably more to do with AWS). I reckon about 10% of sites were off for me, including my 2 NAS DDNS which both failed to resolve; my music server was OK though (through FreeDNS).
