Donīt we get an explanation why the forum has been off the air?

In fact why canīt members receive an email to say we are/going off line and on again? Or is that too much to ask?

I thought that it was my tablet, have reset the whole thing, reset the router and anything else that was suggested for "safari cannot open the page because the server cannot be found".

That started hours ago........

I now have to try to find a very large number of important sites that have been wiped from the history and cache......

Grrr...

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Yes Dave, it drives me mad thinking it's 'MEE'. Now I'm wondering if my noted password is still good.

Always worth checking other sites first!

I reported it to this address an hour or two ago. [email protected] they send you a link and you can report the full error from there.

We donīt have time for all that Barry, we have other important stuff to do. like house work or gardening or fixing stuff.

I think it would be good manners for them to let us at least know why the sight was down once itīs up and running again.
Itīs been back for a while now and I still see no explanation, they canīt all be asleep.

How long does it take to send an email? 10 seconds?

I am not defending them but it could be that they didnt even know until it was reported. Maybe reduced staff although most of the web teams I know are pretty much business as usual. I agree though, some kind of explanation is due. If it turns out it was planned then it really is shoddy. My bet is it will be blamed on a Cloudflare error beyond their control.

Yep I turned off my Wifi to reboot it

Turned it back on, no joy, Albert said his phone and laptop worked and picked up Wifi

I got bored, did I tell you how easily I’m bored?

Yes I know I’m boring but I’m talking bored

And couldn’t be bothered

Then next time I tried, having dosed off, Bingo

I’m here to bore you all again

Only slight technical hitch......

That email address is on here and only on here unless we consciously put it in our email address book, then we'd have go remember to look for it.... before we could use it and, if of course, it was ONLY on your post.....

We couldn't get to it when the site has crashed...

Jeeesaz! Fruitcake!!

Put it in your address book then. I know, ill time how long it takes to copy and paste it. Hang on.....

[email protected] six seconds and most of that was because I realised it wasn't in your quote.

Next time just login to Motorhome Fruitcakes which will firstly show you that the internet is actually still working and secondly Jan will almost certainly have started a thread about it followed by a load of abusive replies about FUCTS etc.
