16:30 15-Sep-2020

Office network Update, Network switch upgrade didn't go as planed, we had problems with vlan's on the internet side so we had to revert the internet side back to default settings for now this also meant the server needed a reboot to fix some settings, we are looking into why it didn't work and may take the network down again.
