    Sorry folks.. it seems the server had a bit of a hiccup. Not sure what caused it but I have been working with the host on it for several hours now and finally seem to see some daylight.

    The main problem is that I did not know about it for an hour or two...

    Maybe shoot me an email when it is down with a subject heading of "Forum Down" or something like that.

    I would rather delete a hundred email alerts than to not know about it at all.. so feel free to holler next time it is having a problem[​IMG]

    You can email Jeff by sending an email to jeff at Smoking-Meat dot com

    Sounds to me like Jeff might want to move his hosting[​IMG]

    Glad she's up again.

    I thought about moving the hosting but man.. that would be a job and a half!

    I may end up doing that anyway..[​IMG]

    If anyone needs to get ahold of me just email me at:

    jeff at smoking-meat dot com replacing the "at" with "@ and the "dot" with "."

    Writing it that way, the email harvesters won't be able to recognize it as easily.

    Hey Jeff, you can get automated reports of your site's downtime. I'll have to look up some websites for you, but basically they monitor your site for you and send you an alert if it's not accessible.

    Hey boss!

    I thought you took it down intentionally to give me and my fellow mods a rest!
  12. Thanks Jeff for all you do to keep this great forum up! It's much appreciated.

    That would be great!.. I figured there was something like that available but have not taken the time to look for it.

    Siteuptime.com is one I have used before. They have a free monitor but it only checks your site once an hour. With the paid plans you can get multiple monitors and checks every 2 minutes, more reports, etc.

    I'll do some digging and see what other people in the web hosting field recommend.

    When the site went down I thought maybe you gave the keys to the car to glued2it and he crashed it. Never let him drive - he drinks too much [​IMG][​IMG] j/k glued

    Glad you got it cruisin' again Jeff!

    I just added Jeffs email address to my emails address book. My intentions are to assist Jeff with knowing when there are website problems (I understand him and/or the moderator's can not be here 24/7). I figure with all the help his website has given me, the least I can do is give him the same assistance back if I know of SMF website problems.

    Here is a big thanks to all that have helped me with my smoking endevors; THANKS TO EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU ALL SO MUCH !!!

    Well if you need any help With it, let me know.

    Since everything is stored in the SQL it's not really all that much to do.
    (I bet this one is huge though)

    The only problem is waiting on the name servers to switch over.

    Drinks too much....Me?........... I huv no ider wut yur talkinin bout! sigpickles
