Bimmersport Downtime

67 posts in this topic

Bimmersport went down around 4am on Saturday because there was a powercut at Hampton Downs which is where it has been hosted for the last couple of years, the UPS kicked in but when it eventually died it seems a lot of things got a voltage spike. The routers became corrupt and I lost a lot of hard drives.

I have spent the last day trying to recover what I can but I am pleased to say bimmersport is back from the dead, albeit running from my home internet for now.

Please put up with it being a bit slow until I find a permanent place to host which will be this will be Monday/Tuesday.

Yes, nice work Jamez! I hope you're not stressing in these situations; do know that we appreciate everything you do, and if it's off air, we know you're doing what you can when you have time. Patiently waiting, sending good karma your way!

This place can't run without the support of those who run hosting kit.

Andy, very generous of you to volunteer some kit.

If we could just ask people to exercise a little patience when posting, that'd be great. :)

While things are a little slower, please wait after submitting a new reply, rather than click submit several times.

Appreciated.

I'm happy to donate a contribution towards hosting/bandwidth if that's desired or required. Perhaps you could set up a donations page here on the site? Is that out-of-the-box with IP.Board?

Move complete, well sort, the external IP will have to change soon but it will only go down for a short time when this happens. I am also running through distro upgrades at the moment as well.

Let me know if you guys think its quicker.

Exactly what I was thinking!

Living in the boondocks, I'm unconcerned about waiting for a page to load. 2 seconds or 10 - makes no odds to me.

Certainly when I came to the site a few minutes ago the speed of load was evidently quicker.
