    Recent Extended Downtime

    The recent downtime was related to a string of hardware issues. First, the hard drive began to fail. Then, the drive was replaced, but we continued to get error messages. So I requested a completely new machine. I expected it to be set up within a day or two, but it took about a week.

    The reason the message board is even farther back in time than the recent downtime is that I couldn't back up the full site because of the hardware issues, so I had to use an older backup that I had.

    This really should be the last time this happens. I'm on a new machine, I haven't had any trouble with it yet.

    Finally, welcome back to the C board!

    Yeah, I sorely missed this site.

    I was forced to go to DevShed, where there's a post every couple days. It's great to be back here. Let's never have downtime again, please.

    Glad to see cprog back online

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
