Migration to new server

The 3 year old server which generated the "Our Planet Earth From Space" website recently began crashing once every 24 hours, give and take a few hours.

As a result I bought a newer and faster machine yesterday.

There are teething problems, as the new computer uses SATA drives, and the old server had IDE drives. As the whole webpage has been custom programmed it isn't so easy to migrate the code to the newer system.

I'm therefore using virtualization software to migrate the webpage with the minimum of fuss.
Even so, it will be several days before everything can work again as before.

In addition, recently the source for hurricane plots has stopped updating.

Please be patient, as over the next few days funcions will go online again...
