Forum Downtime

Post by guru » Mon Feb 15, 2016 1:39 pm

Apologies for the recent downtime on the forum. Unfortunately the data center that the forum is hosted in suffered a major power problem which has subsequently caused corruption to the database.

I have (hopefully!) repaired this now and things seem to be running OK however if you encounter any problems then please add them to this post and I'll investigate.

+1 well done for being there to manage it for us all!

I did scratch my head yesterday when I saw 3 days or so without posts, wondered what I'd missed.

It's back!

Thanks to whomever is responsible for getting the flagship back up and running. It really is sincerely appreciated. I'd be happy to chuck the occasional fiver in the pot to keep things going, just to express my gratitude for the slog that goes into running this thing.

Thank you

Well done getting it back up and running! I found a few glitches when it first came back but they seem to have disappeared now.
Cheers,
Dave

Hi James - don't know if it's connected or not, but I've tried to search but keep getting an error message that it has 'crashed'.

Thanks for your help
