Thanks to all who emailed me to let me know that something was wacky about the site  (not letting you login, not giving access to password resets, not letting you post comments or new threads ...)

The website definitely had a problem that lasted for at least 5 hours.    After a bit of head scratchin, followed by error log digging, I found the cause.  Apparently when you squeeze 135MB of awesome discussions into a 100MB database, eventually it starts refusing additional data of any kind.   (Just one more wafer thin mint ?)

We are now in a new bigger "building", so try to ignore the echoes.  ;)

Sorry for the disruption.    Carry on.

Thanks for all your offers.   The upgrade to a larger database did not involve an upcharge.  So no worries... But thank you all.

Cheapo me has checkbook at the ready!! THIS is something I am MORE than willing to cough-up the dollars for. I get more out of here than I did with PA II but at the same time, I was not expecting anything from them other than the advocacy which I got- but not at the new price.

If the meager ads do no justice in paying for this site, please let us know! As you see it is a lifeline for most of us. Don't be shy. You should not have to foot the bill here.

What can we say, we are an overachieving bunch here. I get it is better than cleaning cobwebs out of the site! 

Cheers for staying on top of it Stev-o!

Thanks but can I change my settings back to what I had before??? I am in a 3 column mode

And the post about the tea still keeps coming up as not read, when I have already read it a dozen times.

Hmmm  I guess there is a chance that if you tried to save a form, that it might have actually only partially saved some of the data and erased but not replaced others.   You might have to just edit your account and re-select your choice as to whether you are using the two column theme or the three column theme.  

 

As far as the tea coming up as not read... try posting something in it, again I think it partially saved that you had read it, but not finished the job so it is kind of stuck for you.  Let me know if that doesn't fix it.

Thanks for fixing.

I found back in the days of my being an admin that actually aging discussion off the board actually brought new discussion, because you couldn't just point at the old stuff... Smiling So we purposefully kept the database size and culled.

Thanks Steve, for I underwent 5 hours of horrible Innspiring withdrawal. You may now go back into your cave, if you must, and we'll continue to play well together.
