Well, apparently its not a good idea to give RiverDave admin rights on the server. All he said was his old man’s a television repairman and he’s got this ultimate set of tools.





:D

Seriously though, when you pick a host its a good idea to inquire about unwritten rules and regulations. Like, "Even though we have 15 terrabytes of bandwidth allowed per month, how hard can I hit the server?" Cause thats a very important question.

Long story short, we were wreaking havok on the server and they locked out the forum display. I am in the process of backing up the database and forum software while a new virtual private server is prepared. I don't know how long it will take them exactly but we will be back online shortly.

Sorry for the inconvience, I've never had to rely on a host before so this was a bit of a growing pain. Thanks for making our site so sucessful. See you there when we are back online.

OK, I just deleted some posts in here from Grads and then a bunch aimed back at him. Go fight it out down in Gray Water.

I swear as soon as I have some free time I am going to make some sort of P2P online boating game similar to GTA. You can all go in there and kill each other off then.

Of course I haven't had a second of free time since 1996, so that is not likely to happen any time soon.

The people that answer the phone are nice enough. Its the admins in the back who "Don't accept phone calls" that I would like to get my hands on. They clipped us without warning. If I didn't care about having the site back up quickly, I'd a changed hosts.

Thanks for the thread Craig! I appreciate clearing up some of the confusion.

WOW..think we would have ever got a response like this from that "other" former forum we used to visit!!!
Never... That's part of the reason why I'm such a large supporter of this site / venture. They actually care about the online community.
