    Down Again

    i have read all the posts prior to this about the problems we have had with the Lounge going down for the count.
    I DO KNOW the the admins and others are working to correct this and I do appreciate their efforts. Big time!

    But can anyone tell us if any progress is being made to resolve this issue?
    Just what IS the issue?
    Can we do anything to help?

    I am NOT trying to criticize, please don't misunderstand me, just trying to get information. I'm sure most other loungers would like more information also.

    Re: Down Again

    It's all very unfortunate, and I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience. We've been running into a string of unrelated problems - last month, an unforeseen forced change of provider, then loss of internet connection, earlier this week a SMTP server failure, and today problems with the electricity supply to the server. <img src=/S/crazy.gif border=0 alt=crazy width=15 height=15>

    So it's not a single issue, and there's nothing you can do to help. We appreciate the offer, though!

    Let's hope we've had our share of misery for this year! <img src=/S/crossfingers.gif border=0 alt=crossfingers width=17 height=16>

    Hans,

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I think the most frustrating thing was the uncertainty of the whole thing. Without information it was just click and hope to see a connection.

    Would it be possible to post some kind of notice of a sort on another site, telling us what the latest prognosis is?
    Perhaps a volunteer lounger with a website we could access in case of other downtimes?
    If I had a site, I would volunteer but I don't.

    Any other takers out there?

    Re: Down Again

    It's a nice idea, but I doubt it'll work - much of the time, the admins are as much in the dark as other Loungers. Last month, when it became clear that the Lounge would be offline for more than a week, Claude did put up a notice, but often the problem is almost solved by the time we know what it is. And keep in mind that we all have regular daytime jobs, so it's often impossible to react instantaneously.

    Re: Down Again

    I'd gladly put a page on my website giving the current lounge status - but as Hans says, I have a day job (not to mention <img src=/S/baby.gif border=0 alt=baby width=15 height=15>Waglet at home) so it would be impossible to keep it updated. I couldn't promise anything more frequent than once a week, and that would be useless as the Lounge is rarely down for weeks at a time.

    It's astonishing that so many unrelated problems have caused downtime over such a small period of time. As Hans says, let's hope it's all over now.

    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    Hans,

    I guess it is the season for unrelated coincidences as far as the Lounge is concerned. Two days ago, after you fixed my problem of not being able to access the Lounge because of a hard coded wrong IP address in my Host file and it then worked, I tried yesterday and again couldn't get to the Lounge. Well guess what my first thought was - Host file again.

    Sorry to hear about the Lounge's problems but at the same time I'm glad it wasn't on my end this time.

    Keep up the good work.
    H Lewton
