ARGE Service Interruptions March 23rd - April 23rd - For the past month visitors to ARGE will have experienced a severely degraded or even totally absent service. This was caused by the repeated closing down or denial of access to the hosting web servers of the University of Groningen, which were under repeated attack by hackers. Unfortunately the lack of access meant that I could not even place an appropriate notification on the ARGE home page.
I hope that the service interruption has not caused you any problems, and that you will continue to visit ARGE - the Editor.
