Server maintenance

Postby pete » Mon Aug 08, 2011 10:26 am

The main site server has been experiencing problems over the past days and is now undergoing maintenance which hopefully will resolve the problem. This has meant the main site has been inaccessible for much to today as tables are being rebuilt.

This does effect the forums images as images and screenshots are hosted on the main server.

Apologies and thank you for your understanding.

OK a large database seemed to be the culprit. It has now been rebuilt and things seem OK now.

Most people think that flying a plane is dangerous, except pilots because they know how easy it is.
Arguing with a pilot is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a while you begin to think the pig likes it.
