Website failures

Dear all,

Some of you may have been experiencing issues using our website, or having problems with the website element of our Hybrid, Couples and Fusion dance machines. This was caused by our webhosts decision to move our website to a new, more powerful server without our knowledge. Because of the way the internet works, it can take up to 48 hours for everyones ISP to be aware of the change and for you to be able to see We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.



TIS uses a website approach to the management of its couples dance system, the TIS Hybrid. In some ways this facilitates the set up and operation of the system, but at a higher risk of failure of the system. The higher risk is added because dance information has to go to a website external to the LL servers. I have mentioned this previously for example in the most recent comparison of sim dance systems (about 2/3 the way down the article).
