Unplanned downtime
« on: April 12, 2011, 09:27:45 PM »
So the ISP had some sort of hardware issue  :zap: We were down for 21 hours. Needless to say, I am not happy...

I believe I will start looking for a new ISP soon

Sorry guys...

My day has been on the phone arguing with the ISP.  :bang: I poured a lot of time into this today... I could tell you how I feel but I would be violating some of my forum rules! Needless to say I am PO'd but greatly relieved we are back.

It's nice to be normal again. Thanks for all your efforts!  :thumbup:

Sorry to read this is causing you so much trouble. Just to pass on a report: 1 of my messages were deleted, which I guess relates to having a days of posts removed.

I have trouble getting on this site very frequently of late, almost ever time I come to access it (admittedly I'm not a frequent visitor) the page just won't load, gives error signs. I hope your day goes better today!

A whole day of posts lost!!   

I had written many profound replies to many posts... I don't know if I will be able to recall them all and re-insert them now?

If you believe that you'll believe anything  :lol:


glad we're all back  :mmr:


As said chief... Thank you. For all the hard work keeping us all happily communicating   :ddb:

Looks like the ISP is STILL having issues.

Made up my mind... as soon as I can financially do it, we are moving service providers.

Where can we contribute?

If you want a server, I already host 1 forum on my virtual server (listerengine.com); adding madmodder to it would be a doddle... PM me, there would be no charges (ever).
Cheers!

Thanks for the offer to host Ade... I use my VPS to host a few domains though.

No problem Eric. In that case, I can recommend daily.co.uk - I know it's UK based & you're US based; but so far, I've had nothing but uptime from them. They had a planned outage of a couple of hours, which I got over a month's advance notice of; and when the time came I didn't even notice it...

For the US, I only have experience of hostmonster.com - same applies though, so far it's been well over 99.9% uptime, for over a year.

Cheers!

I have heard good things about hostmonster.com. I am also considering myhosting.com for the VPS. I will be making a decision soon as I want to get this behind us. I have been with the current host for 7 years... things have gone reasonably well until the last year or so... Now, I just want reliable service AND decent tech support.
