By 13:57 UTC the incident began to resolve itself, and by 14:04 normal service had resumed. We are currently waiting for the Azure SQL database team to get back to us with more information about what has gone wrong, and will provide a report of the problems once they do so. We sincerely apologise for any problems this has caused.

We are currently experiencing issues with the servers that host our Australian diaries (au.resdiary.com). We suspect that this is caused by an issue affecting Azure databases in their Australia East data centre. We are currently investigating, and trying to decide what measures to take to get our Australian diaries back online.
