Sorry it took so long to bring back online!

During some routine work on 8/26 we discovered some major problems with the database- specifically that it had become corrupted due to a lack of server memory (we had 2x more memory than this time last year). With the expert help of danthony2 (see his C&D computer consulting ad!) we were able to diagnose and work on the problem. Later we discovered that we needed even more specialized help and we hired a phpbb expert to help us repair the database at a moderate expense. danthony2 walked him through working on the database and helped in a generous effort to help reduce costs.

The problems we encountered necessitated another server upgrade, which is now complete. We now have 4x the memory from this time last year and will stay ahead of the curve if that proves to be insufficient.

Thank you for your patience. Please use this thread to discuss the issue and ask questions- I will answer what I can.


9/5 10:00am update- We had about 20 minutes of downtime to fix the server clock.

Thanks for the hard work I'm sure you put in. It was a bit sad this past week.

Quick suggestion:
If during some maintenance it would be possible to add in a seperate "Ammunition & Reloading Components" classifieds section, I think it would really beneficial.

It's good to see the board back in action. You were missed! [smilie=anim_bannana.gif]

The only casualty appears to be some of the pictures in the Handguns for Sale section that now appears lower in the list on the menu. Not bad, especially considering how much havoc simple Microsoft updates to my laptops often cause. [smilie=icon_lol.gif]

Life is good.

Thank You Thank You Thank You!

I was going through some serious withdrawals and I'm new to the site. I can only imagine what the other more seasoned patrons were going through.

I'm glad the site's back up. I was getting tired of PHX.BP...if not for the convenience, it would be too much of a hassle to use that site with all the bs and what not.

I even saw some getting antsy and posting their frustration online, ha ha.

Anyway we can reciprocate the effort with a small donation? Maybe a paypal donate link or something?
