Because donations have been practically nil from newer accounts/people for the past couple of years I found a cheaper hosting solution. But they did a botch job on the migration, so things had to be fixed to work again. Couldn't even reach the forum admin index and control panels. No real help from tech support, just fob-offs. I spent a week going back and forth with them trying to get them to assume their responsibility. They instead continued to put it all up to "using an older version" of of forum software.

But of course that was NOT the problem that kept things from working. Asshats.

I'm glad you got things back up and running.
I was starting to think you'd shut the forum down.

I changed my mind yesterday. The new one doesn't work any better than the old one.

Ugghhh! Migrating my Passinwind website last year was bad enough, and I was still using the same provider. They had to update to more a modern security format and none of it was automatic. And of course costs still keep spiraling upward.

Glad you're still here Dave.

Thanks for your perseverance, Dave!

Totally unrelated, but I was called into a $h!t$torm situation late Sunday arvo at my workplace (IT support at major insurer). About 18 hours into an issue following mainframe IPL late Sat night. I have mainframe background but role here is totally on distributed servers (Unix, Linux, Windows). Without access to our visibility of the big iron environment, all I could do was keep asking questions for several hours about the service that we principally connect to to ascertain why the mainframe requests were failing, & continued to do so even after IPL fallback to supposedly working config. In the end I just happened to ask enough dumb questions for the mainframe support guy to notice & 'fess up: Of, the task was started with the wrong user id! Problem solved after nearly 24 hr downtime...
