Unhappy AMcCF down hard

AmcCf's been down all morning (since 2130GMT). I suspect their server has crashed.

I've tried to trace the packets to their server 207.210.105.30, & have gotten to at1-core-g-g1-6.gnax.net before the packets are lost. I was able to ping 207.210.105.29, which should be within their same network segment.

Just so you know, Wolfegar has contacted the server folks and they are working on it. But they said it as was a "serious problem".

I'm hoping it will be back up soon too.

Still a serious problem over there. Of course, MOM is great, in some ways more so than AMCF, but there's a different crowd there, and a different sort of ambience. I wouldn't want to have to do without either.

It happening on a Sunday won't be much help But let's hope for the best and a speedy solution.

You're right Granath, despite the fact many peope are members of both I think amcf leans more towards a general discussion board than an Anne McCaffrey board.

My front page is back, with broken images, and won't go anywhere. And it's old, because it has Faren at 16,004 and I think she's past that now.

It looks like the AMCF webhost got the server up and running again, but that Wolfie may have work to do to get the forum on it's feet again.

I love both sites - you can get different levels of fervor and such . . . I like just bouncing between the two . . . then I visit my other forums:

StarTrekFans.net
Melanie Rawn's Exiles forum
Pug Village; for those crazy about Pugs (Carlins)
Retroland if you are nestalgic about what toys, TV, games, and such you grew up with
Main Street Moms
Wolfegar's site
Laurel and Hardy Forum

and others . . . the list and links are on my siggy page

Dux, if that's the last time a backup was run on the database, then that's the best you'll get. You're probably lucky that there was on that recent, missing just a day and a half of posts.
