***Server Outages 12th August & 7th Sept***
Sopron
Thanks, Travisina, and there was me thinking I'd lost the way after a long absence! Let's hope, with all those 'important' sites affected, that won't happen again...

Cool

Hi All,

You may have noticed that Horizon suffered a major server outage on Tuesday 12th August. However, this was not just our host server, but also several others worldwide, including eBay and Skype. The reasons for this are deeply technical and probably best explained by those more computer-savvy than me.

These issues are being addressed by the servers' owners, so hopefully Horizon will be up and running properly again before too long.

Apologies to all members, but there was nothing we could do about it at our end.

And I thought it was only me. I was unable to connect to Horizon for over 4 hours, kept getting that dreaded white screen with MySQL. Glad things have come back to normal. I missed my 'fix' for the day. -Paula

Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

Thanks, Travisina- I was having major issues trying to post last night and wondered what was up!

Someone should remove the Tarriel cells from the SQL servers, then maybe Orac won't affect them so badly! Or maybe it was Federac?!

Hi all,

You may have noticed that the website disappeared for several hours this morning, Sunday 7th September. Once again, it was a server issue over which we had no control.

Thanks for your patience - and welcome back!

Indeed Travisina, may be a few emails coming your way, feel free to disregard! Grin

FWIW Server seemed to be down from about 06:45-13:45 BST

Thanks. I was checking it from about 8.00am, but I'll let Diane know the more exact times, so she can let the hosts know.

OK, SD and myself must NEVER agree on two different subjects during the same day again, we confused Horizon and caused the servers to short-circuit Grin Grin
 
Spaceship Dispatcher
Lol TT Grin Grin we messed up the normal routines by not arguing!

Glad to hear the reason for the outage (though not glad about the outage!!!).

I kept clicking and clicking and thinking I'd lost my new-found contact with other Blake's 7 fans.

Then I gave up and hoped we'd be back in a few hours.

Glad we are. Smile
