I wouldn't want to count the time (over 1,000 hours into the Manual alone) and money I have put into it over the last 6 years--just b/c I believe in it for some weird reason.

folks, be glad people are complaining - it's a sign that they care about the product.

i donate my time, cause i can't afford a monetary donation right now, to helping others on this forum and i would hope that the recent outage serves as another hint that the hosting service that is being used needs a rethink.

i'm sure others are thinking the same, and the recent outage bears no indication to anyone's dedication to this site or mepis. sh** happens.

from a marketing standpoint, having outages like this does a lot of damage to the mepis brand but i would say how the issue is resolved effects the brand as well.

so, as annoying as it is to not have access to the forums - ok, it can be like having the dt's - i would hope that everyone can work together to find a solution.

i would also suggest that there be some sort of method for service outages/issues to be reported to help address any issue that may occur outside of the normal east coast, U.S. business hours.

Maybe I am too mellow. A couple days of down time here is very low on my list of things to get upset about.

Yeah, Rich, you're too mellow. Get with it, eh?-)

Since I love the 'idea' of Mepis I guess I'll put up with the occasional[U][/U] glitch here and there.
Don't misunderstand, I'd prefer that everything be working....OS, website, etc. but understand that not everything will always be as I'd like. Kinda like a good marriage.

did anyone else have problems accessing the forum today around 12/12:30 pm EST?

i tried for about 30 minutes, each time being prompted with a server unresponsive error in firefox. not sure how long the issue was there because i went to run some errands...

my internet connectivity to other sites was unaffected.

Yes, As far as I can gauge, it was a couple of hours.

I'm having problems now.

And despite what adrian says hardware failures and power outages are not 'unforeseen circumstances'. These are things that a proper hosting service should have systems in place for dealing with.
