We’re Back!


DPS ComputingWe’re successfully back with you after our recent infrastructure upgrade.  Apologies for the intermittent nature you may have experienced on some services over the past couple of days but we should now be back up to tip-top condition.

If you notice any issues, please let us know in the comments below.

This recent infrastructure upgrade is part of our wider plans for this year, including a relaunch of DPS Computing & further app releases over at DPS Apps so stay tuned to the now supercharged, super speed blog for more details coming soon!

Hello everyone,

Firstly, thanks for your patience!

Secondly – the new DPS Computing website is here!  We’re still making changes and updates, so you may still notice some work going on, but it’s now in a state where we can launch it.

Feel free to take a look around and let me know what you think!



DPS Computing – New Website – Update – 28/02/2015

Hello everyone,DPS Computing

In preparation for our new site going live this weekend we will be performing essential maintenance and preparation work.

During this time, all areas of the DPS Computing website, except the blog, will be taken down.  Apologies for this necessary inconvenience whilst we get the new site up.

Due to maintenance and preparation activity happening on the server, this may have some impact on the performance of the blog – however I will try to keep this to a minimum.

Please bear with me during this time.

Thanks for your patience.


DPS Computing Website – Maintenance – 22/02/15

Hello everybody,DPS Computing

The main DPS Computing website has been taken offline temporarily to be migrated to a new platform.  The blog is still accessible and will remain so throughout the maintenance of the main site.

The current incarnation of the DPS Computing website, which has been in place since 2012, runs on Coldfusion.  However, unfortunately Coldfusion only runs on Windows operating systems.  Therefore to implement this technology on DPS Computing we have had to install an alternative open source system that supports Coldfusion development.

However, over the years, this has led to a number of problems, including site inaccessibility and extended periods of downtime.  In addition to this, the open source software and its integration with the server is quite complex and maintenance of the server usually takes much longer than it would if we were not using Coldfusion based development on the main DPS Computing website.  Additionally, new features of Coldfusion are not always available in the open source software or take some time to be integrated.

DPS Computing now has a dedicated ColdFusion server for Coldfusion developments.  However, given the issues listed above, I have taken the decision to migrate the main DPS Computing website away from Coldfusion – the site was due a face lift anyway ;-).

Thanks again for your patience whilst we migrate the main site,


PS.  These changes won’t affect the blog – it’s staying as it is for now!

DPS Computing – Website Update – 25/01/2015

Hello again everybody,DPS Computing

Problems accessing the main DPS Computing website should now be resolved for all visitors.  All pages are now accessible and I’m working on a couple of small remaining image issues.

If you notice any problems or still have issues accessing the website then feel free to leave a comment below and I’ll look into it.

Thanks again,
