Post Site Downtime
As I'm sure a lot of you may have noticed, the site (including the board) was down for most of yesterday.

It's still popping offline from time to time now. It's been quite unstable for the past few days.

According to the hosting company:

Quote:
There is a big problem with httpd service on the server. We are working on it and will keep you informed about the problem status. Sorry for inconveniences and thank you for your patience


Basically, the actual physical server is fine. But the program that dishes out the webpages and things to people is falling over.

I'll post any updates on the problem.

If anyone feels like sending me an offensive e-mail about the site being down, please feel free :)
I can forward them to the hosting company to make them feel guilty :P

I think a move over to Mr Dyer's infamous hosting would be great... but I belive the account Ken has at the moment is on a year contract... So it would expire November sometime... I think.

Also, It IS up to Ken :) (and Chad of course :P )

indeed :roll:

Well... It turns out that the server has been suffering a denial of service (DoS) attack for quite some time.

Don't know if it was directed at our site or just another site on the same server yet, though.

I'll keep you posted :roll:
