Post subject:  Forum outages recently

I have a bit of a complaint/question about the board over the last few weeks.
Every time I try to log on, either on the logon screen or once I finish logging on
I get a message that "The Board is Unavailable" but with NO clue as to why or
how long the outage will last. Could the moderators look into this please, at
times the outages last half a day and obviously very frustrating.

Thanks,

John

If/when the forum is unavailable, Admin knows.
Generally, they are the "cause" of it performing some type of maintenance.

I realize that the admins are likely heavily involved in probable maintenance when the
forum is unavailable but what prompted my question was that this has been going on
for literally HOURS on end lately. I am a 30+ years experienced computer specialist
and have worked for quite large firms with huge computer installations and literally
nothing in my experience ever took as long to correct as this recent puzzling activity
has. Just like this forum probably has, we had site installations from coast to coast
and in nearly all 48 contiguous states and were required to maintain availability to
our users for nearly round the clock service.

I appreciate your input and am sure Admin will reach out to you if they believe you can help. We know there are many here who would do the same.

We're a free service with unpaid volunteers; running on a shoe-string budget to keep things free and without annoying intrusive advertising and such.

Lots of things attended to here are done so in between our regular jobs, family obligations, etc. Accordingly, not FAST and certainly not immediate.

All the best to you.

I suspect that I owe Hitman and any other moderators who might have been
offended by an earlier post I made about frustration on forum outages a genuine
mea culpa(apology on steroids), my main impetus was that the outages had been
frequent and constant over a recent period of time. I surely realize that the
heart of the forum is its unpaid yet deserving of recognition respect for what
you all do for which I thank you.
