NOTICE - IDAHOGARAGECADE TEMP DOWN

Post by FrizzleFried » Fri Oct 30, 2020 4:39 pm

Hey folks...

Sorry to bother you with this but I've gotten a few PM's over on KLOV (and it appears more than one here).

The server that houses my personal blog (www.idahogaragecade.com) and my forum is down for unknown reasons.

Most concerning is that the server admin has not answered any of my emails in 24 hours now...

I am VERY MUCH HOPING that the server comes up ... soon.

No. We didn't go private.

Yes. I am hoping the site is back up soon.

Yes. I am an idiot as I don't have a local backup of the damn site (the blog site) as I pay for a backup service but of course that backup service was paid THROUGH THE SAME GUY who isn't responding to my inquiries about the issues.

Lets hope it's just a cluster-F and he's too busy fixing stuff to respond to people.

...patience.

Just got news. Frank, our sysadmin, is a 1-man-show and he managed to catch the Covid. He's been down and out since Oct 11th.. evidently just getting out of the hospital in the last couple days. His wife says he is recovering. HOPEFULLY this situation gets rectified sooner rather than later.

Thanks for letting us know, also thanks for the site too... I'm glad it's back up again.

Amazingly, I got more PM's re: the blog site being down than I did my forum being down.

NOTICE - Due to our server admin's passing due to Covid-19... and a number of unfortunate situations that arose due to it... I had to move the blog over to another site. This would have been easy to do if the blog wasn't attached to my 8GB arcade forums as well...

:)

The move has been made. Unfortunately there has been a change. NO LONGER will the site be accessible at www.aha-forums.com/wp ... so basically ALL the manual links here (any everywhere) in all the posts for anything that goes to my blog... won't work anymore.

:(

The new URL is the old "forwarding" url I had...

www.idahogaragecade.com

Currently a lot of "manually" entered links on the site itself aren't working. I'll work to fix those. All "main site" links (menus, etc) do work.

If you come across a link here for something that reads something like: http://aha-forums.com/wp/2019/03/27/mul ... e-cabinet/ ... that URL will now be http://idahogaragecade.com/2019/03/27/m ... e-cabinet/ ...

Basically you remove the aha-forums.com/wp and replace it with www.idahogaragecade.com and it should work.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

:(

Sorry for your loss. From your earlier posts it sounded like he was pulling through too. .

I will try to update the links here as I come across them.
