Are the archives down?

Post by darrin » Wed Nov 07, 2018 4:48 pm

I have noticed since about a week or two ago that I couldn't get to the archives. It just gives a "timed out" message. This happens on both my laptop and phone so I'm guessing it's not just me.

I just wanted to ask if mods / admins were aware of the issue. (If the answer is "we are, but it's relatively low priority compared to a lot of other stuff going on right now" that's certainly an acceptable answer. :lol:)

EDIT:
Yay, thanks paarfi. :D (I mean, y'know, not yay that they're down, just that folk are aware. ;))

Yes, they are down hard. We can't even get to them remotely, so Fred has messaged the guy who hosts the server and asked him to physically reboot it. Hopefully that will fix it.

This is why we are very happy to have new forums on a nice new server. :P

Fred heard back from the server guy. He thought we weren't using the old forum anymore, so left the blades off. He says he'll get it back online.

Still down. Is there still hope?

I'm still reading in the dates covered by the old forums, so I'm very interested in the outcome. If there is anything I can do to help recover/port the messages, let me know.
