Website problems 23rd & 24th May

Post by guru » Tue May 26, 2015 3:53 pm

As many of our regulars will be aware the website was down with a database problem for a good chunk of the weekend.

The database problem was fairly minor and just needed a quick repair however it happened to choose the weekend that I was partying in a field (Radio 1's Big Weekend!) so I'm afraid it didn't get any attention until I made it back to my laptop on Sunday.

I'll be keeping a close eye on the database however I think it was a one off and is unlikely to happen again any time soon. Apologies for the downtime.

Why apologise ? These things happen. I just thought Richard hadn't paid the bill ....

How do I make a donation to the forum. I value this site a lot. Thanks for the hard work and effort that people give free of charge, just to keep it going. I for one appreciate it very much.

Thanks for sorting it out James, we were getting withdrawal symptoms! Your time and effort is much appreciated.

That's a good question - and the answer is that we don't have a system in place to do it at the moment

Cash in an ASDA carrier bag behind the toilets in the Rose and Crown. Tell the barman the cistern's overflowing again. DON'T ASK QUESTIONS.

Thanks James - as ever, your efforts are hugely appreciated.

And as for donations, I still think if Richard and/or James put a PayPal 'Donate' button on the bottom of every page (like they have managed over on the Brown forum), people would be happy to contribute a few pennies here and there without creating any kind of obligation on those who receive the money.

I'd be happy to bung a fiver your way and expect nothing in return - I'm just grateful for the opportunity to read (and now hopefully even give) advice over the years.
