I apologise for the service problems over the last few days. My hosting company inexplicably decided to change the DNS server details on Missing-Lynx's and HyperScale's servers while they were doing maintenance on Wednesday morning. However, they neglected to tell me about it, so all the sites on both servers winked out of existence. After the third time they suggested that there was no problem and the servers were working perfectly, they finally told me about the altered DNS. I changed the DNS settings on all the domain names to match the servers yesterday morning. It seems that most people can see most of the sites again now, but it might take another 12 hours or so for the information to propagate everywhere.
