    The cradle of the Ashanti Empire and known to mediaeval European explorers as the Gold Coast, Ghana was the first country in Western Africa to achieve independence. But how much do you know about it?

Scheduled server downtime: 24 January 2013

Postby Dave » Wed 23 Jan 2013 01:22 GMT

Our hosting providers have told us that they'll be taking our server offline for maintenance on Thursday 24 January 2013, at some time between 0900 GMT and 1100 GMT.

They don't expect the downtime to be longer than 20 minutes, but they explicitly don't rule out the possibility that it might be longer than half-an-hour. On past form, it's usually been down for anywhere between half-an-hour and two hours. Last time, in December, they had to cancel after taking the server offline for two hours - and in October, a catastrophic failure meant that we were offline for eight hours!

So if you visit the site during that time and find it's not available, please try again a little while later - we hope it should be up and running again before too long.

Thanks for your patience.
