    Finally got on the 80's forum today after being denied this morning again and it's like we went back in time...did we loose data and have to go to a backup?

    Thanks

    THANK YOU for you patience...

    first off, the host has relocated the mysql server data....with luck, that will solve future problems.

    As we "all" know, the site went down around 12:00am CST until about 5 minutes ago....I became aware this morning about 6:15am....sent a trouble ticket in, then went to the dentist (yeah, wonderful double start to my morning...) Called the host (and got a busy signal) for a couple hours, finally got thru and left a callback number. The contacted me at 10:30am CST and were unsure of what the problem is.

    Well, long story short, they STILL haven't called me back like they said they woud....and, since I can't access their ticket center from work, I had to wait until this evening to log in and discover they had moved the forum data....only to THEN discover they provided the incorrect IP information!!!!!!

    IDIOTS!!

    Fortunately, I "adjusted" things, had some luck, and it's back up.

    Again, thanks to everyone for your patience. I DO appreciate the emails letting me know that I'm not alone!!

    Actually, I got that deja vu feeling all over again :D

    Woody--hope you're getting some compensation for their incompetence.

    It is a shame to have lost all the brilliant witicism and repartee that went on yesterday. We'll all have to remember it fondly as the pinnacle of brilliance it was. And there'll be no way to prove otherwise!

    :cheers: thanks for all your work, Woody. We appreciate what you do.

    I second Dave. We are all frustrated about not getting on, but if you didn't do such a wonderful job everyday, we would have cared.

    We appreciate your efforts related to this site Woody and are mad WITH you not at you!

    Could you add a spell checker so I wouldn't have to go back and modify so often!

    Thanks,

    Ken

    Even with the frustrations over the last month or so the site has been a tech resorce that is invaluable. Much thanks to Woody and the Mod's for all the work.

    Funny how when IH8MUD goes down, I can jump to pirate and there in the LC section is a mini IH8MUD forum. Its great.

    Just good to have it back up.

[glow=red,2,300]From the same gal I latter picked up [/glow] a new in the box SW 4016(I think, its the full size) 40cal stainless and a new in the box Berreta Tomcat 32auto........prolly
