Thanks to the network sleuths supporting our ISP Weehost we determined that the Bell Internet backbone in Montreal had a few bad hair days in row last week. OCTRA members in eastern Ontario routed through Montreal experienced problems reaching our site or could not reach the site at all. Those on mobile devices fared better. Our site serves much tighter, smaller pages to mobile devices and those devices are frequently routed over different backbone lines. All is back to normal now. It was an opportunity, however, for your webmaster to optimize the site in several ways. Hopefully this will be a rare event. Thanks go to Rob Wright for all his support.
