?. I've been on here off and on for almost three hours this morning with no problem. I see Irishteabear went to sleep in the chat room. Maybe she timed out too!PDT_Armataz_01_05.gif

The problems with shutting down or no access are a bit annoying so I'll agree with you on that point. Progress is being made? As far as no one here: it's COLD and there is white crap all over the place here and in many other locales. Personally smoking meat is for me an enjoyable thing to do. Fighting the cold and wind is not. So Wintertime is a low period of activity by the smoker, for me and many others too. That being said, last winter there were no site issues, but the activity was still slow and low. Be patient. Wait for the warmer weather and good times will surely return. For those of you in the warmth already: Fire up them Smokers! We need our fix!

PS: Spring is but 25 days away!!!!

It's every couple of days for me the site will be down for an hour or so. And I know it's not just me, because when it finally comes back up, there is a significant time where there are no posts when you pull up the New Posts list. If I loose a couple months worth of posts and info again there is no way I'm re-registering again.

I will be making the switch to the new server with in the next 48 hours. I will post before this happens.

It is frustrating with the site going down. Once's the switch to the new server happens the site should remain up. All the data is safe.

Please hang in there another 48 hours and we should be good to go.

If you have any suggestions or questions please PM me.

Brian, some of us know that you're doing all you can to keep things running consistantly, and that you're backing up on a daily basis to min. data loss. Thanks for all your work, and we're looking forward to the big switch. Those who have been or are in the tech field know exactly what you'e going through. Hang in there Brian.

I thought we already switched over? I have not had any problems since the big crash last month, and Im on here ALL day. I dont care if it does go down again, this place is great as are the people on here. If I had to re-register, I would.

Both my sons are network/IT pros and I know all too well what y'all are are going thru trying to switch servers, backing up, etc. It's a long, tedious and frustrating job and everyone needs to be patient and understanding because Murphy's law always prevails - whatever could go wrong; will.
