Well done IT guys

Socialise and chat about other areas of your life
Well done for fixing the problem. :-???

I wonder whether it was the heat and the humidity
Sorry it took so long Colin but it was a big problem with the servers.
I was getting withdrawal symptoms. :-???
I saw a message telling us in advance that the forum would be closed overnight, but it wasn't very obvious. Maybe how such things are announced needs to be reviewed?

normal maintenance is usually done in the wee small hours - unfortunately this time there were some unforeseen problems with the servers which required some major works !
I agree, well done to the IT team.
I nearly missed the notice not to post anything and did wonder if it should have been typed in Capital letters? Just a thought, not a moan!!
Hi All,

I'm glad we're back up and running. I'm afraid we have no control over the warnings as these are automated and programmed in by the external team who host the forum and the main website. A Sue said most of the maintenance is meant to be carried out overnight to avoid any disturbance but there was a bit of a domino effect of server fails on the last update which caused ours and several other unrelated hosts websites to go down from the external company we lease the space from. However the guys and gals worked hard to get it back up and running and I think we should be back to normal now. fingers crossed!

Thanks all for being patient. :)
