Re: Which AB members do you miss ?

I can't imagine what's taking so long to fix the website - unless the problem is categorically being ignored?

Your right Sammy, no ones working on it, I guess they have lots of sites that went down and we are on the bottom of that list.

Re: Which AB members do you miss ?

I'm missing a lot of Buds.

I think they can't find this place anymore.

Re: Which AB members do you miss ?

I'm an old mainframe guy...so I shouldn't speak of a PC based website....
But I noticed one could not get into the main page
at abxzone dot com.
To get into the site I google abxzone and select the forums page.

Screw the avatars and jpegs... the first page should have been fixed the first day... should have been a simple text message that stated..."sorry experiencing tech difficulties"
and then a link to the forums...
That would have allowed most people in ... and you would not have lost who knows how many regulars...who have no way of knowing how to get in.

There is a lot wrong, maybe everything with this site now. I am highlighting smilies because they have to be one of the easiest problems to fix and they are still broke. I might be beating a dead horse here but it makes no sense the repair time it is taking to get this site back up. The site has hardly changed since it went down. The efficiency of working on this problem is pretty bad. Has CG been paying tech. support since this site went down?

Seriously, I have taken a deep breath now. It could be 6mos at the rate it's going to fix this site and it is not fair for those waiting and expecting it to be fixed any day now.

My expectations have reached a nadir - as long as the front page loads, and forums are working, I'm okay.

Re: Which AB members do you miss ?

In addition to ABX, aren't there six or eight other CG forums?

Does anyone have links to them?

Wasn't there a Windows Vista forum?

Re: Which AB members do you miss ?

The company is pretty big, I think it is worth around $10mil and recently paid $400k for another website. They have kept us running for years and I hope we have provided some value to them.

Let's hope the site gets back to normal and can be kept that way with minimal upkeep/expenditures. When it gets back to normal I would like to ask what precautions they are taking to prevent this failure from happening in the future. I would think that it is possible to host the website and have a second copy on a virtual OS drive that cannot be connected to. Then mirror all the files daily to the virtual copy. Drive space is a few bucks.
