Apologies for outage

VR Glaciers is being moved to a new server, although the URL will remain the same. Unfortunately, a DNS issue during the lead-up to the changeover resulted in problems accessing the site off-campus on Wednesday 20 March. This has now been resolved (as of 09:00 GMT, Thursday 21st). The new server will be brought online this Friday, but no issues in access are expected. Apologies for the inconvenience.
