AlisonW - The .com test site

This site is currently being redeveloped. Although it will work fine it will continue to look terrible for a while yet. Sorry!

My public timeserver has been playing up a bit lately, but I've not been certain whether it is a machine hardware issue or a weather-related ADSL networking issue. As I've been pondering changing the machine which I use for the NTP service I've now done so, putting it on to a SunFire v100.

They'll be some stability issues for the next few hours as it stabilises, but I'm hoping it will be better after that.
