  • Disappearing forum

    Just wanted to ask if anyone else out there couldn't get onto the forums or the directory for a day or two. I tried and got this wierd DELL Host site thing that didn't make sense. Double checked the address and everything and still was forwarded to this site. Kindas weird, but I am glad I can get back to the forums!

      Re: Disappearing forum

      I did it. I admit it...

      I used the power of my mind to put a temporary stop to the forum obsession...

      I thought, "What if every piper HAD to practice for an evening...just one evening?

      Just think of the even, big doublings that would appear!

      G-D-Es would be even!

      Birls would become burly!

      Crossing noises would vanish!

      Silver would be polished!

      Smelly hemp would be replaced!

      Ah HA HA HA HA HA HA (diabolical laughter)

        I think there was aserver failure, and it took them a while to recreate/restore the content from the looks of things.

          Ahhhh, so that's what happened. Well thank you!

          I had a pleasurable plethora of piping productivity without pondering the plentitude of pleasing posts in which I wasn't a participant.

              Well, just one day without the forum and I was a quivering mass of hysteria. Gosh, do you think that means I'm addicted?

              I get on the forum during my lunch break and at night after practice and mostly it seems to help my piping so I'm going to continue with this habit. <img border="0" alt="[love]" title="" src="graemlins/love.gif" />

                Youch..

                We were touring the Highlands.. where 'net access is not all that easy to find.. and then I discovered the Forums were gone. (from a phone call).. in fact everything on my sites was gone .. so I called DellHost (our hosting company).. they didn't think there was a problem .. Their view..as long as a page not found error is not displayed they think everything is OK..

                Wow..

                I am so very unhappy with them.. but kind of hard to express from here (Ft.William today)..

                At least they fixed the 'not a problem'..

                And I found net access today- $7.50 an hour.. but I wanted to check us out..

                  Wow - I began getting that DellHost thing on Friday. Still no access Saturday. Same again today. So, I contacted MSNTV tech and they said its not their fault. Then, called DellHost and the person there looked on their list and said they didnt have any "Bobdunsire.com" listed. ??? They said its not their problem either. I was just about thinking I'd lost access to my favorite site, but tried a 'search' for "Bobdunsire" and got some alternative address from the usual "www.bobdunsire.com/bagpipe..."(and some other stuff) and finally I got in.

                  That was only 5 minutes ago. I'll have to go back out and see if "DellHost" still comes up in my normal way of accessing. Hopefully it was just now fixed, since I see Bob's post here.

                  Major Bummer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    Humm - I still cant access via "www.bobdunsire.com" - STILL got that dellhost thing.

                    Has anybody been getting access by that web address?

                    Seems I can access it ONLY by "bobdunsire.com/bagpipeweb/"
                    or
                    "bobdunsire.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi"

                      http://www.bobdunsire.com

                      works fine for me... maybe try to refresh the site from your browser..... your computer may be saving the site to "help it load faster" on your local hard drive... MS IE is notorious for that....
