Network Blocking – NHS

It is with regret that I have had to block access to this site and some other services to users of the NHS Network and associated networks, this due to unacceptable spikes which is preventing this and some other platforms from operating to their optimum performance. The traffic load to this site from the NHS network and associated networks is unacceptable to the smooth running of such a complex and well utilised platform.

I apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Why have I created an overflow site

There are a number of reasons for this:

  1. This site is getting rather large and there a few things in the pipeline where I might want to slim things out a bit.
  2. There are a number Of “Special Purpose Vehicle” blogs on this site which are no longer a good fit.
  3. This site is nearly five years old and has amassed over 3000 items of individual content.
  4. I have a large volume of web based back content, some of it over 20 years old. I would like to republish some of this old content and having two sites seems to be the best option for this.

My main website remains here
