This afternoon we have mainly been trying to make the site go a bit faster… and made it go a bit slower instead… or maybe we made it go so fast that it went back in time… twice.

So mucho apologies to those who lost comments this afternoon - we reckon we can get them back, honest. 

Bigger apologies to those who registered on road.cc this afternoon… erm not sure we can get you back. We'll try though.

We promise not to fiddle about with the back end of the live site any more

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

Lines don't quite have the same effect when we all know you've just done (apple + c) (apple + v) 12 times! I vote you do some hand-written ones and scan them in.

Arf!

I worked on a site where the "policy" was to test in live - it made you a very careful developer, albeit an extremely stressed one at times...

Maybe it is best that YOU don't fiddle with the back end of the live site  3

we don't promise not to accidentally apply an update that was meant for the development site to the live site, though.
