Sad but true, the server where this site is stored experienced some technical difficulty Sunday (1-25-04) and some data was lost. The most recent back-up of the site was from 1-15-04, any new members that joined after that date will have to register again. Along with the new members, several good conversations were lost as well as some excellent pictures. I hope the authors of the missing threads can find time to recreate them and the picture posters will resubmit also. My appologies to all for getting lax on backing up the data, I will tend to it more faithfully.

Rob

I too was having server difficulties and could barely get to the site let alone get on the album repairs.. Things seem back to normal so feel free to upload to the albums.. I'll get a new announcement out and clean up a bit.. Some will have to go thru the upload process again. Confused

There are still lingering effects from the outage but should be remedied soon. Here's what my host ( www.vertexhost.com ) has to say about it:

db errors

Hi Rob,

Yes, the past few days we've been toying with some different versions of software as well as changing some security features. So occasionally mysql or apache or another major service may go down for a short time while we work on these issues. For the most part I'm trying to take care of them during the morning hours so they affect less users, but a few times I've had to do them more during prime-time.

But most of the work has been completed, and any further errors should be not likely, or very short if they occur. We will be hopefully adding more RAM to this particular server as well sometime this week, which will be hopefully the last period of downtime. Thanks for your patience with these matters.
