Hi — we’ll be restarting the image service cache at ten past eleven, tonight, to allow some updates to apply to the server.
This will require the image cache to rebuild itself. We’ll be adding a number of image processing servers into the mix to make this process as fast and seamless as possible, but some users may nonetheless experience slow image loads as we perform the update.
These are usually resolved within a couple of minutes, if they happen at all.
Thanks for bearing with us whilst we undertake this essential maintenance, and sorry for any inconvenience caused — although you really should be in bed, by now. But then, I suppose, so should I. 😉
