On 16 October there were problems on the gerontius web server. Following this, the choir database and member area were unavailable until 25 October. The problem has now been resolved and choirs should be able to log in as normal.
Problems with gerontius member area & choir database 16-25 October
Please let us know if you encounter any problems.
There is still an minor outstanding problem relating to choir photos. Small photos may not be displayed correctly. We are working to rseolve this.
Technical explanation : I'm not sure what happened (Host Europe won't tell me!), but there were problems on the server where gerontius is hosted on Saturday 16 October. When the server came back up again, the gerontius member programs wouldn't compile. It eventually transpired that after rebuilding the server, or whatever they did, the perl Image::Size module which the site uses was no longer available. They refused my request to reinstall it, so we're currently looking at alternatives.
Everything should work OK, but choir photos may be incorrectly displayed.
