Subject: [originsnetwork] Labor Day Access
On 4 September (USA Labor Day), our free access offer resulted in the highest traffic levels we have experienced, and unfortunately some users had access problems. We do apologise for this, and are working to increase our traffic handling capacity (already above what we normally
need) before our next free access offer.
The service was unavailable for about 4 minutes around 1100 GMT on 4 September, and because of the very high traffic we decided to stop new free registrations between 1300-1600 GMT. There were two further service interruptions of a few minutes each around 1800 GMT.
If you were not successful in taking up our free offer this time, there will be more. If have opted to receive our emailed newsletter, you will automatically receive notification of our next free access offer.
