    I know that the forum has been down for a lump of the afternoon. IT seems that a lot of more recent posts have vanished? Any ideas why??????????

    If it was to do with root vegetables and steaming sprouts Rob will retrieve the posts.

    If it's about doing indoor 62 yard air density group testing with pre weighed Bulldog's using the earths rotation to calculate pellet drop at 30 yards allowing for the sun setting in the south, or if the velocity of a pellet is effected when soaked in beef dripping and otter spvnk then dried in an oven on gas mark 6, or how long to cook a 10lb turkey then possibly no.

    Hope this helps.

    Right. Apparently there was an outage and unfortunately the posts have been lost.

    I'll be reviewing the general situation with the hosts in the morning and if we do need to move the site I will do it because I'm not happy with these outages either.

    Rob your host doesn't know what is a UPS and backups? More than 24 hours of lost posts it's unacceptable.

    Do you have one idea of the capacity that the forum occupies?

    the backups are there, but we can't splice them into the ongoing forum easily, we either roll back and lose subsequent posts or continue with lost posts.

    the key is trying to find out why the host failed in the first place... but i'm already looking at alternative hostings...
