"It's just chaos down here!" Can't Post

I notice that the Old Boards are not currently available on line. I assume this has to do with the disaster the servers suffered earlier this week. Can anything be done?

I appreciate that this would be a relatively low priority for TORn's volunteer IT staff! So thanks for any efforts or response!

Thanks for the tip [In reply to] Can't Post

That's Corvar's side of things. I'll let him know.

Thanks again! Smile

It might be obvious to Corvar but... [In reply to] Can't Post

the News Archives that would normally be found at the end of this link are also off line.

It may seem like no one visits these dusty old halls anymore but I do. :-)

Weird. The old forums were accessible after the outage. [In reply to] Can't Post

I checked Wednesday evening, when the site came back online, and was able to open up some old RR posts.

I did mention both things to him [In reply to] Can't Post

The server that the old boards are on (and a number of other items that are currently down) was affected by the electrical outage. He's working to get everything back up to speed, but he's doing it in order of 1) importance to the operation of the site and 2) amount of traffic.

It may be closer to the end of the week, or even after the weekend, until everything is back to normal. Smile

I figured that both were housed in the same place and fixing one would fix the other [In reply to] Can't Post

but, not knowing for sure, I thought it was worth mentioning.

I don't actually hold this to high priority at all. But knowing he's aware of it and putting it on the list is soothing.
I surely won't be needing to access it this week!
