Guys and girls - you may have noticed that YD has been off-line the last three mornings in a trot and this has not been the first time. I have been liasing with our hosting company and to put it mildly, they are a shower of shit. The errors are, of course, my fault, the codes fault, leaves on the superhighway, everything but theirs so I have decided to move to another hosting company. When I find a suitable home, I'll have to move all the files and the domain name across and this may take a few days resulting in YD being off-line.

I'll let you know before turning the boards off and try and give a timescale for switching them back on. Sorry for this but when you pay peanuts, you get monkeys!

Thats almost as bad as not diving, very very sad.  
 


Appreciate the reason though.

Please post under Dive Medicine what I should do about withdrawal symptoms.  


Lots of luck and keep up the excellent work.

Oh no, Jay's tinkering again and we all know what happens when Jay tinkers.

Yeah, I was wondering if that was when the hosting company did their backups or something?

You can use that crappy forum I created as a joke for DIM divers if you get really desperate


Is this problem linked to the way board statistics right now say:

That's right Dom. All your crap has been deleted and this is what we're left with.

Other way around - for some reason the hosting server resets all the sessions every night and then decides that I have used all my disk quota (even though i haven't). I've finally got someone at the hosting company 'looking into it' but if i get no joy then we all move home - how exciting!

Hmm Easily

I assume you are on a shared server Jay?

Is it something about dive forums (BSAC, Diver) etc, that all have the same host?

Buddying up as it were

<font color='#0000FF'>Don't know if you are already aware of this, but it is possible to get into each forum directly, e.g. by clicking on a link in a 'tracking' email sent by the board, even when going to the 'main menu' fails.

Also works by selecting the 'forum jump' selector.

Yes - shared server. No way I could afford a dedicated server at the moment. Purely coincidental about using Easily - I have hosted sites with them in the past and (until recently anyway) thought they were very good.

What's the traffic/bandwidth usage for this site like?
I have a friend who has an under used server in Telehouse on a 10M/bit link who may be able to do you a deal (flat rate per month, all the bandwidth you can eat).
