Default We're back!

Finally!

So the host originally thought we had an issue with a stopped post (Apache was suppose to use port 80, but couldn't)...

But then they found the problem to be much worse...So much so that they had to wipe the server clean and then bring the forum back through a backup...

Even though the site's been up for about an hour (They were testing), I just received the email telling me its back up just a couple of minutes ago...

Our long national nightmare is over (Whew!!!!)...

I wondered what was going on. I just kept checking every few days, but yesterday it said "YOU ARE FORBIDDEN" when I checked.

Ah c'mon ! We come back up just as I have to leave that house?

That hardly seems to be a random coincidence!

A good site is Is It Down Right Now? Website Down or Not?

which checks if it is simply your computer that can't connect to a website, or if the site is down for everyone else too.

Can I suggest that for future issues, there be a place we can go to get an idea of what's going on? Twitter?

That way we won't make a fool of ourselves e-mailing CNRedd. ;-)

Or simply a mass email when down, and another mass email when back up?

Some of Hillary's emails were on the server?

Did they wipe it with, like a cloth?
