I notice a few times where I come to the site and the page doesn’t load (especially in the afternoon).  It has always resolves itself after about a minute or two, but I can see where folks might find it a bit annoying.

I checked with my provider and it appears to be a load issue on the server.  They suggest I purchase their dedicated server service (of course they do, right?) – for only ‘way more $$$ than I can shake a stick at’.

I’m thinking I’ll have this issue no matter where I go, and I actually like the provider so far for other reasons – but do folks have any recommendations for other providers?  Just curious more than anything right now though…

We have discovered a problem with folks not getting an Activation Link for their Registration.  I'm looking into it now, but so far am stumped. 

I'll be activating the most recent accounts manually, so if you have been waiting, sorry for the delay  :-[

We just got our first blatantly SPAM post, which I deleted along with the offending member account.

If you spot any, please bring it to our attention and we will remove it immediately - thanks  8)

I spoke too soon, but at least they are keeping me informed.  There was a major server crash and it is still going to be another day befor things are stable again.  Right now, we have up and down access.

I noticed that my Avatar folder somehow got renamed 'Forum' during a sever restore.  That caused some avatars to blank out, but I beleive I have fixed it now.  Let me know if you find any broken pics or links - thanks  8)

This seems strangely appropriate, despite the holiday season being missing:

Ignore the video part, it's all about the song.  ;D

Or if some down-home country is more your style, there's this:

Again, ignore the video. ;)

I am just now able to get back onto the site, due to a hard disk failure on our server.  It is almost completely recovered now.  We have been pretty stable up to the last week or so, and I'm hoping that the hard drive was the issue all along.

SHEESH!!!  Finally back online after four days being down  :P

Sorry about that folks - the server rebuild they did in January caused a major disater when a routine upgrade was installed (I guess someone missed something...) and it didn't take - nor back out afterwards.  The entire sever had to be rebuilt from backups of the hundreds of sites (including ours) that resided on it.

Hopefully they got their act together now and we can enjoy some stability around here again.

Problems Activating Accounts?

Are folks having problems activating their user accounts?  I've noticed a few that have registered but not activated - are they not receiving an activation email?

If you have had any problems with it, please let me know - thanks  :)

I wonder what the problem was with the avatars the other day? The avatars were nothing but a square with an X in it. Hows come it did that? ???
Something else happened when I was posting. BZ do you remember what I said the problem was? I can't recall the exact situation but I know it had to do with posting problems. It was bizarre though. ???

The longer the site exists, the more spambots you'll get.

I have to delete like 40 a day on my forums because it's been around for 4 years. Even if it doesn't get much public traffic, the spambots have found it..
