Somewhat tongue in cheek....
I wanted to look up some grant information on the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council's website today but find it is currently unavailable for a total period of five days. Five days!! See screen grab below...
Now, I know the research councils are feeling the squeeze on their funding but not to be able to run their website off another server for that period is surely a slight indicator things are not going well?
At least the SFTC have a well known excuse..
EDIT: Upon further investigation it seems must of the physical/'real' sciences councils websites are down without an alternative for the period as well. Harumph.
