Forum down for the past few days

Post by Frank » Mon Oct 16, 2006 7:47 pm

My web host's server had a hard drive crash on Thursday morning so they moved this site to a different server on Saturday. Because the new server has a different DNS address, it took a few days for the site's new web location to propagate through the Internet.

Compounding the problem was the early snowstorm that hit the Fort Erie area (and Buffalo, NY too). The power went out on Thursday afternoon and was only restored around 1:15 pm today so I only discovered that the forum was still down this afternoon. Some database incompatibilities were found in the process of switching servers which prevented the forum from working properly until now.

Sorry about any inconvenience this may have caused.

Frank
