I'll re-enable the relays once the sidekiq backlogs have cleared.

OK, I've invested in a 150GB volume, going up from the single 50GB I've been squeezing the life out of since launching this instance.

This should significantly improve the stability of the instance.

Looking forward to December off. Lots of Christmas stuff being planned.
