Sorry about the outage Ladies and gentlemen, Forum Db got corrupted.... even while I was posting yesterday!
Seems we lost a days worth of post, mainly by the incompetence of an idiot IT guy that didn't read my support request properly!

.... we  IT guys do tend to do that. 

  Now where were we?   {:-{

Don't worry about it Martin, my Dad's website's database is severely corrupted, we're just coasting along at the moment until the new one comes online, don't want it to go bang!  %% Keep up the good work!

As yesterday's input has been replaced by the day before, it does mean that all letters read and posted are now gone.

It does mean re- reading all the articles for the day before, again.   %)     Enjoy

All of the old adverts in the FOR SALES section beyond July 2014 have been removed to clean up the forum space.

Some of you may be notified by the automatic system that your posts have been removed.

If you want to replace your adverts then please feel free to do so.     :kiss:

Cheers

Ken

FYI:  I've now arranged a server memory upgrade, so we "shouldn't" get the same issues as last couple of weeks.

Well whats happened, I went to look for my sale add from the 30th June and its not there, how can this be    :} :} :}
 
Well somebody would have said something !!   :}
 
Personnally I would get rid of July as well.., take the pictures back to say 180 - 200kb  as that is more than enough, clear out a few users who have not been active for say a year and not posted.
 
It all helps for a tidy ship.

May I respectfully suggest that all of us who enjoy reading this forum on a regular basis, especially those of us who post on a frequent basis, donate to this awesome service if you haven't done so recently.

Although this is a 'Free' service it does involve the Admin Team in significant costs (and time) to provide such a gold mine of useful info.  ie:  Martin having just had to upgrade server memory to limit server outages, lost posts, etc.

I am sure that if all of us put in the equivalent of a couple of pints, maybe twice a year, we will each save much more than that from the resource information disseminated here.

What happened to "we are now on a shiney new server" how new was it if you are already upgrading its memory? Your server is not run by Atos by any chance

New server seemed quite happy but recent stats showed that it was constantly hitting the memory capacity buffers and wasn't coping as well as it should. We've double the memory and it seems to be working much more efficiently, especially under peak loads.

Thanks for the donations lads, a pleasure to serve you.   :-)

OK, OK, hands up, definitely my fault this time.... sort of!

I was trying to do the back-office stuff, Checks, repairs, optimise etc.
 I should have shut the forum for a while but.....  :embarrassed:
 .... I've had to roll back to last backup, lost today's (Feb 13) posts.

 Lesson learnt and thanks for your time and advice Tugcowboy, much appreciated!
