The web site is down because of a hard drive failure? Good grief. You've GOT to be kidding me! No backup? No mirrored hosting on another server?
This forum site, along with our main web site at ogaugerr.com, is backed up twice per day to off-site backup locations. The building where our servers are located could burn to the ground and we would be down for 30 minutes at best.
They need a new hosting provider. In this day and age that's completely unacceptable.
Rich, from previous comments from Olson's, I'm pretty sure they host the site on-site on a computer in the corner somewhere. That's stated as the reason for years they'd go off-line and need to "reboot" the server when they get back after the weekend.
The total lack of backup does mystify me!
