Idle curiosity

When the PBEM++ server logs an event, it uses a Pacific Time timestamp. Why does, what I take to be a British company, Slitherine, appear to have its servers located on the West Coast of America?

A long way to go for a reboot surely?

Servers are all in the cloud these days :) It's a good balance for location between NA and EU.

Cheers

Thank you for the swift reply, good to know that the TopTeam are on the case.

I can certainly see how appearing to be based in Silicon Valley or L.A. might provide more international cachet for a company than having a head office in, say, Epsom.

Best wishes,

Nick
