A quick update on a change in the website:

I've now switched the main web-server to a new provider.  But - I have not yet moved the site database over.  You may find that sometimes the response a bit sluggish - this is why.

I'm in the process of migrating the database, and once that is done, I expect zapread to be "zippy".

The new web server is also much more easily scalable, and I don't expect that any future upgrades will be a problem.

Thanks everyone for your understanding!
