True sorry. Tile going down was unfortunate, but there was a plan to keep
serving but it did not work out. I had too many balls and I dropped
one, the rest of the weekend went well.

We also get slightly more OSM operated hardware outside UCL soon. Any
friendly large hosts out there that can offer us some well bandwidth
fed hardware/rack space? Maybe a university in North America?
