Site Problems

Why does the forum keep going done?  Is it because of hack attempts or something else?

Hehe I think Neil said it was maintanance being carried out on the server. Personally though I haven't encountered any problems although I know quite a few people in chamber mentioned it last night.

Yeah...I've had several times over the last couple days that the forum's been down.  At first, I thought it was my computer because it was doing everything really slow.  But then, once I got the error messages,  I realized the forum was down. :(  I hope the maintanance is done soon, though.

I think there was a 2 1/2 day downtime over the summer...and we lost several days of posts then.

*applauds those who worked to bring the forum back*  Thank you!

I didn't get a chance to come online at all Tuesday and the time before that they were working Monday evening.  I fixed them today around 7am before I left for work.  As for why they were down and keep going offline, I still have no idea.  :-\

Still thinks it might be mischief -- such as denial of service errors -- hack attempts -- hopes that I am proved wrong  ???

[Hopes that Neil can find the culprit and send something mean back to them if an individual is to blame]

It wasn't a hacker. :P  It was the combination of them doing server maintenance and it screwing up the forum database.  Anyway, the site's been up for a while now so everything should be fine. :)
