That's great :-) Here's what I sent them. Seems Wikipedia is *rather
important* to the BBC newsroom at the moment ...

Technical hiccups happen occasionally, unfortunately :-) Most pass
momentarily, more noteworthy ones tend to get noted on the technical
mailing list. I would guess you experienced the problem detailed here: http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2012-August/062111.html
There's a status page here: http://status.wikimedia.org/
Someone emailed our uptime over the last year to one of the lists
recently, but I can't find it ...
We're not perfect - as a charity, we run on a shoestring - but we do
our best and admit our hiccups and errors :-)
