Downtime apology and explanation.
Hi. It appears that this site was unavailable for a few days while I was on holiday.
Somebody, somewhere changed a setting so that the site (and ALL my other sites) defaulted to index.html, ignoring the wordpress index page. Thanks guys.
I KNOW all was well when I left, because I checked.
Additionally, because the site was returning a default index page, none of the usual alarm bells went off (pingdom, jetpack, etc..)
As if that wasn’t bad enough, this had to happen while I was away in Crete for two weeks with nothing more than a mobile phone and glitchy hotel wifi.
Anyway, normal service HAS been resumed.
