These different messages are par for the course when these IT problems are being fixed. The techs will be turning different functionality behind the scenes on and off to figure out what the underlying problem is. Getting a login screen occassionally means you probably jagged getting that screen while something was reset.

Be patient, the problem will be rectified....

Due to the technical problem on the main forum I have reopened this one until such time as it's fixed, which should be tonight or tomorrow.

The techo is downloading a bundle of files from the server and HOPES to have it up and running tonight. At worse we may lose posts but the main thing is that the forum will be up and running. I hope that the data (all the posts) is still on the server it is just the forum that needs to be reimposed over the top.

I am very annoyed that this has happened but I am not upset, if you get my meaning, as I can't change what has happened and I and the techo are doing everything possible to rectify what has gone wrong.

I will keep posting any changes here.

Warmest regards,

Maybe I am sending off negative vibes....my IT system at work crashed spectacularly this afternoon. Thanks for update David, and I hope that not to much will be lost when the forum is returned to it's former glory. Good luck with the fix.

I had a call from Tech Support about the current status. The basic forum has been restored back to the previous standard and we are now trying to get all the posts back on there. A support request has been sent up the support chain for them to get a copy of the server from 4 - 5 days ago (when this all happened) with all the posts so we don't lose anything.

Some may have noticed that the forum has been up and is now in maintenance mode, it is because our little spammer friends were posting on it within an hour of it being put up.

Once further information is forthcoming I will pass it on.

David...Andrew....what's going on with the forums? It's been well over a week now. If i were you I'd look at using another host for the website seeing as these IT guru's clearly have no idea what's going on or what to do about the problem. I was trying to buy a whole heap of cheap kits from a fellow member and now I can't even access my PM's to contact the seller. I'm hoping he has the patience to wait till the sites back up. G

Dave is doing as much as he can from his end. If I recall correctly the server host last time this occurred was the same as Westpac's and it was an attempted hack on them that caused this issue. I think what Dave is trying to do is get the site restored via its backup so that very few posts are lost.

On another note I have found a few Huey bits you can have which I will put in with that AC-47 you wanted.

The tech support have sent off for the main server backup so there will be no posts lost on the server. It turns out that the backups of the server that my supplier does don't back up programs above a certain size, guess which site that it didn't do regular back ups of......

The main server does backups of everything so we are waiting for word form them on getting the backup put back on the server.

If I receive any word I shall pass it on.
