Topic: Outage, Nov 2014

Well, the domain still had about 4 months before expiry, but somehow the domaine registrar decided to stop resolving it. It turns out, after WEEKS of trying to figure out why, that the email I had used in the whois file was bouncing (I had disabled it years ago because of the amount of crap spam I was getting!).
So the registrar was silently failing because of that...

Anyway, it's all fixed now, at Bl***dy last! Sorry for the outage!

Re: Outage, Nov 2014

buze,

I am so glad that the forum is back. It disappears suddently, I could't find any information somewhere on the net about the reason. I had the fear that the forum has gone forever.

Re: Outage, Nov 2014

Nope, sorry about that. It was a rather annoying problem, as even my pretty trustworthy ISP that hosting it had no real clue why the domain was gone!

I'm going to upgrade a couple of the mods as 'admins' too, so they can sort our new registrations -- I had to give up on that, as it was taking a bit too much of my time unfortunately...

Re: Outage, Nov 2014

I check the forum daily for new posts, which I read with great interest.
I too was quite concerned during the outage.  I'm glad to see it's back.

1. Glad you're back...we've been checking in, kicking this horse to bring it back to life...someone kicked it in the right place I guess!
2. Is it going to expire in 4 month? or will it be renewed?
3. Can you post news of any other disruption on another forum?

Good luck for good future.

Re: Outage, Nov 2014

No problems; it doesn't cost me anything really, so I don't see why it should disapear!

I asked the other modos if they would volunteer to be admins, so they could filter trhu all the fake registrations I was getting back then, and possibly get more users back on -- new blood! :-)
