Seems the forum has been down again - thanks for recovering it Admin, it's been strange without a daily visit!

Admin never explains why there have been crashes despite being asked previously.  Admin needs to be more active and/or get some help running this site.

I reckon the problem is with Simple Machines or whoever is hosting this bb.  When the site was down the page said "Internal Server Error". Possibly also "Error 504".  Can anyone else provide an accurate error number?

I was getting Error 500 every time I attempted login, that is a very general non-specific message, which simply means there is something wrong with the server, but we have not got a clue as to what it is.

It’s great to see the Forum back again.
I’m more or less a daily visitor to this site who posts before, during and after my holiday on the island.
Well done admin.

No idea why the forum went down this time round, it took quite a while to get it back online. The first time round was due to changing servers as we explained. Happy posting :)

I have not seen any ads since the last disruption, surely you will need to get an income stream to keep the show on the road?

I believe that every time the forum shuts down there’s a noted rise in  Ivmovedons blood pressure (as recorded by Jand ) or failing that it gets overheated with Beechlifes posts.
I hope you know I’m only taking the pee. But then again?

Would do if you didn't delete them.
Did you have a sense of humour transplant whilst your htaccess file was dishing out server 500 errors Norrin?

Glad to see the site back— Didn't know where to turn to ask all my usual dumbass questions in its absence!

Thanks to admin for getting things up and running again. We do appreciate it, promise.
