you have no idea! I think I aged about a year in the space of three days!


Just recuperate with the knowledge that we appreciate all your hard work and efforts.  ;)

Now that we have moved servers the forum should be a lot faster and more reliable. Time will tell!

Thanks for your diligence to get it back up and running, and don't let it age you!  ;)
BTW, the Facebook post was a good touch, to get the word out to folks who may not have got the word you'd be down...

Question--will the bookmarks and notifications be back in action soon? The latter are not showing up properly in my profile right now.

Thanks Dr. Admin and everyone else who worked so hard to restore DTF.  I wasn't aware that the site was going to be down and actually panicked at the 404 error.  I was so lost without you.  :'(

Yes, we had a bit of a Jurassic Park situation here for a while and all the dinosaurs got loose. Never, ever, rely on technology!  ;D

You will have noticed the blog and forum went offline for several hours. This was due to a technical problem with my now service provider and shouldn't happen again. Thanks for your patience :)

I hope we didn't lose any topics or replies posted just before we went offline.

Hehe, yes, the page would have said that to everyone. It said it to me too. Basically, our host accidentally deleted all the files from the server and had to restore everything from backups. I was told it would take an hour or two, but it took far longer in the end. Luckily we are back up now and hopefully for good this time. I can only apologise.  O:-)

The database just crashed, not sure why.  :(
I have fixed it and hope the database error doesn't happen again!

You may have noticed we went offline for about 12 hours today, this was unplanned! Apologies for the inconvenience, we seem to be back up and running now  C:-)
