Because AMI is too popular

June 20 2013, 9:31 PM 

One of the problems the site has at the current server is that it is too popular and getting too large for the CURRENT server. I am looking around for a decent server that doesn't cost a fortune. I could go back to N54 but I don't think I want to inflict that on anyone as the new forum is much more flexible and user friendly.

Warmest regards,

No Dave, don't even joke about going back to N54

Dave

New additions to threads need to float to the surface not get lost in the mire. Now that everyone has finally gotten used to this system with the PM's and such it would be a retrograde step to operate like Hyperscale again. I must admit I wasn't a believer when you first changed the AMI platform but I slowly became converted as others have, so for god's sake, please don't change it back.

Cheers Bill

The site is back up again

June 21 2013, 6:06 PM 

There was a corruption of the Forum database somehow and we have just lost a few days posts, not months as last time.

Back ups are being done daily, weekly and monthly of the site so we don't lose heaps of info like last time.

Why does thgis (sic) keep happening

I am sure Dave will sort out and resolve the site server issues in good time. Remember he has a full time job, a family and he manages and maintains the site for free. And we have the benefit of Dave's commitment and decision for no monetary outlay.

So who might be prepared to subscribe ($$) to a forum service that could be hosted in a more reliable manner (i.e. one that charges more to host a website due to it's equipment/facilities)?

((insert the sound of crickets))

Finish writing that article for submission to the website or get back to the plastic in the meantime. I am sure it will suffice to ameliorate the withdrawl symptoms some might be suffering otherwise.
