* Upgrade of infrastructure for SpillOnline

You may have noticed a few niggles with the SpillOnline website over recent weeks. 

This has been a result of migration of the site to a new upgraded server solution, providing much improved data security and back-up systems as well as an improvement for visitors accessing the sites.
While the migration process has been underway, we have been updating its core to be compatible with todays standards, ensuring long term fidelity and stability. This has also resulted in the occasional period of downtime while we deploy the updated code, for which we apologise.

Things should be back to normal now, but do continue to contact info@ukspill.org if any issues arise.
