Question What happened to the forum?

r

No mention of why the forum has been down. Hope it was just for maintenance and not something like a hack!

I can't believe how much I missed everybody's opinions and expertise!!

I was also going through withdrawal symptoms this morning. Glad it's up and running.

Long story short the database crashed the whole system including Hamb which he got u earlier. There are going to probably be a few days of post that he lost but he has had a real bad last few days.

Thanks to all of the folks that worked to fix the Server or Servers!!

I remember spending MANY hours over 30 years, fixing various crashed mainframes. Not much fun with all of the pressure ... With many folks working "around the clock".

Most customers made the job much easier by being understanding about the problems encountered while rebuilding the system.

Yep, I missed you guys.
Fortunately I have a varied collection to keep me out of mischief, but believe me the 4 other forums I frequent, together does not come close to the barn.
Regards
Chris
