We had a store outage from about 1800 to 2300 GMT on 27 October 2009. The reason that it was down for so long was that it happened from 1am to 8am Perth time, so while our monitoring system was going nuts, we were all tucked up in bed.

We're still getting to the bottom of this but it looks like one of our security scans got out of control.

We run these pro-active tests frequently to ensure that our site and store are rock solid. Unfortunately last nights regular tests went a little crazy and took out the store.

This is the first extended outage that we've had with the store in 2 years of running ShedWorx. We're confident that it won't happen again.

Apologies for any inconvenience that this has caused.
