    Re: Downtime Announcements

    No need to apologize, Ryan. As always, all of us appreciate all the work you do to keep this place going.
    I hope you got to enjoy the holiday weekend and that you didn't have to spend most of it trying to restore HT!

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

      You're the bestest, Ryan. You really are. For those of you who might not be aware, every time one of us clicked on HT while it was down, it generated an email to Ryan. At some point yesterday (Monday) morning he had at least 1000 emails in his inbox. The HT problem then continued for at least another 24 hours. While I enjoyed an HT vacation Ryan certainly didn't.

        Yes, Thank you, thank you , thank you Ryan. I do apologize for all those emails from my end. I too thought it might be my end so I tried on three different computers. And then I kept checking to see if it was up yet. I even tried to get in through Google.

          Thanks, Ryan, and sorry for all the e-mails I generated while trying to figure out what was going on.

          You would think that a serverhost would automate your backups a bit more frequently. After all this is priceless data we're talking about-- you can't get this level of discourse just anywhere!

              It must have taken a lot of Kona coffee for the amount of overtime in order to fix the problem.

                As long as you don't post a link, WB

                Ryan, you are great. I saw the website down page and knew it could not be good. Thanks for all your work to get us gabbing again.

                  Thanks! When the site was down so long, I knew it couldn't be good. Glad you got it going again.

                  So, ready to join the Church of the Daily Backup? It's all too easy to see backups as a chore, until one experiences the alternative. (BTDT-both sides)

                    Yikes! I was sure I broke it... No huhu! All is good again. Bless you for getting it fixed. I bow to your computer skills.

                      And I thought I had wrecked it by posting something in the wrong thread.

                        Re: Downtime Announcements

                        New problem - since Tuesday night, it has been taking an extremely long time (over a minute) for me to get HT - or any of its pages - to open. This is the first that I've been able to get in to post since yesterday afternoon, and it took several minutes.

                        Anyone else been seeing this problem?

                          yep, me too. the server has been giving that 'unavailable, please register or login' message. logging in takes longer and pages take longer to appear, and often I get a 'server error' message, over the last 2 days.

                              If I understand it right, that condition is normal.

                              logging in takes longer and pages take longer to appear,
                              I am not sure about that condition.

                              and often I get a 'server error' message, over the last 2 days
                              I have been seeing this today as well. I just notifed the admin of it.

                                okay, but the past few days its happened every time I go to HT, vs it used to happen to me maybe 2 x a week.
