To all RateSetter blog readers,

Every once in a blue moon our developers have to open the hood and carry out some necessary engineering to ensure the smooth running of our blog.

What does this mean?

The blog will be taken down on Wednesday 10th September and won't return to action until Tuesday 23rd September. Don't despair. It will be back, and it'll be running smoother than ever. And for those who have commented on the blog, don't worry; your comments will still be available to view on the blog's return.

Thank you in advance for your patience.
