Yep, same here - annoying isn't it. It comes up for a few hours then gone again  :bang:

I have sent out a cry for help from the computer literate MEM Admins just before 13:00 GMT today but nothing so far. I feel so bad about it not being on line   :palm:

Update:

Just had confirmation that our hosting site is having problems which are STILL not yet resolved .

Sometimes I wonder why we willingly have anything to do with computers

Jo, sorry about being slow to respond... busy day (VAT return time = 1/2 day chasing down stupid invoices for 1.74 because the accountants won't JFDI claiming back the VAT  :palm:

Anyway, I feel extra-guilty, 'cos I'm the one who recommended the host (Daily) in the first place. And ever since we put MEM on there, Daily has been nothing but trouble!

Apologies all MEM users - our "dedicated" host is working flat out to, hopefully, fix our site & the dozens of others they broke. Meanwhile, we are looking for a better way...
Cheers!
Ade.

There has been a lot of activity world wide...much of the boards are targeted most attacs this month has been from usual suspects. Like one Finnish board that has only few hundred memers suddenly got 500 bots visiting from ZH.

I know the feeling Pete. Our provider's site still claims that they are trying to fix it  :bang:.

Jo

Have you tried doing a search for Modelenginemaker and then use that URL rather than one on a   'Favourites Bar' ??

Some months ago I kept getting 404 to a site and the FBar link seemed to have got stuffed. After I got in OK once, the one on the FBar worked OK again ...

T'Internet Moves in Mysterious Ways ...  :zap:

Failing that, the Gods obviously have it in for you and you'll have to sacrifice a Jaffa Cake or a casting or summat ...  :(

Dave

Try this:

http://www.modelenginemaker.com/index.php

Works fine for me ...

It's working fine for me too...

Jo's told me what tests she's run, and they're all the proper IT ones (the REAL ones, not "have you tried turning it off and on?")... so I have no idea why she (and others) are still seeing the error message. It does seem like a cache thing, but that shouldn't affect different OSes...

Cheers!
