We've got a preliminary ETA; looks like about 10 hours... hopefully sooner, but no promises. Seems like a big thing went SPLAT! in their datacentre.. (NAS failure...)

that's what happens when you don't rely on Steam...... things go splat......

Question: Is "Splat" a tecnical term?

Well... Having worked with real steam high HP power ..even steam can have he occasional SPLAT... (the real technical term we used was unprintable.)
The sort of problems I can remember vividly were bearing overheats, injector problems, and the odd high pressure pinhole leak.. Most everything else can b fixed by either oiling it, or hitting it...

Cheers
Harold

Whee even having a time frame seems like progress. I have something to look forward to when I want to kill my quilting project. A baby quilt is not as easy as I thought it would be to finish.

May I ask?

Is there a PARTICULAR reason that the move to a new server has 'caused more DOWNS than I remember ever having with the old one.

Since the move we seem to be having these on at least a monthly basis.

Just sayin' is all. Smile

I have to agree these do seem to be occuring more frequently and lasting longer..I mean it's 24 hours since I was last able to log onto BG and I'm getting withdrawal symptoms.

I think under the circumstances, and given HAC's history with computers, I think a "BOFH" would be a better choice. Very Happy

(PS. To those who don't know what it is, it's reference to something those involved with IT will understand, bit of an "in-joke" as it were...) Wink

(PPS. Goggle it if you really want to know, and read up on the activities of said BOFH - you'll enjoy it.)

The page is back to "not responding". I wonder if that's good or bad?
The BOfH reminds me of my good old times in IT... *sigh*

Eeep! Shocked
I lost my first weblog that way, back in 2003. The provider deleted everything, accidentally. Then the provider was deleted.

Well THAT didn't last very long..did it boys and girls?

I managed to access BG late last night just before bed. I got into work at midday today (I am working til 8pm) and within 5 mins of being on BG I'm getting the 'page not responding' message.

Anyone else?
