    Just checking, cos I haven't been able to open the site since yesterday sometime - keep getting a "Could not locate remote server" message.

    Aye it is
    Unfortunatly it's hosted in a data centre in Houston texas
    The hurricane knocked out the power supply and also blew a transformer in the data centre.
    The last update I had about 1 hour ago was

    If it's not up by tomorrow we'll be moving to another host.

    Ah! Thanks Adam!

    I had actually said something to my husband yesterday, when I was having trouble with a couple of sites, wondering if the hurricane had anything to do with it =)

    I hope everything comes back online soon!

    I was hoping to get a message through to a friend in Houston that plays, but I will have to wait until the forums return. I am hoping all is well for all of our players throughout the effected areas!

    I betcha I won the lottery too and Ike came and wiped out all record of it!

    On a more serious note, hope all the folks in Ike's path stay safe. I doubt you guys are reading this but when you return, our thoughts were always with you.

    All joking aside however I hope everyone that stayed in Texas are alright down there.

    You know, I understand that UOForums is important for people, but to jump hosts because of something out of everyone's control? Adam, don't punish your host for something they have zero crontrol of. It's not like some dude working for them poured coffee on your server...a freaking HURRICANE hit! Just relax...go smooth man, go smooth. :)

    There are a few other reasons for wanting to move.
    Namely the issues they had getting to the equipment and the fact they haven't replied to any emails sent to them.
    Plus, there's no guarantees it won't happen again if another hurricane comes along
    So we're going to a host which has it's own data centre, in a non hurricane prone area, heh.
     
  18. Might want to look into one that isn't in a frequent Tornado/Earthquake/Landslide area to just to be safe :).

    And Blizzards, and rolling blackouts, and...

    So...get hosting on the moon.

    Glad to hear it'll be back soon - I thought maybe my attempt to log in after months away killed the server :)

    Hey Kit.

    Should be back tonight, I hope
    The server is online, but transfering the backup from new york is taking a while.
    Plus the usual dns delays. :sad4:

    Hang in there folks. My thoughts are with your wonderful community. I know when we went though a... erm... hiccup, it kinda sucked. Got any Queen Mum cookies laying around?

    I think they got blown away in the hurricane, heh.

    Forums are up
    If you still get page cannot be displayed, try flushing your dns cache, or waiting for abit
    To flush your dns cache, click Start, Run, type CMD, hit enter
    At the command prompt, type - ipconfig /flushdns
    If it doesn't work still, ya need to wait a bit for your isp's dns servers to catch up.

    Thanks Stratics for allowing this thread to remain.
