      if he was in pain and distress, it's a release; I know it won't feel like that now, but, eventually, it will.  Take care of yourself and the others he left behind.

  17. The forum has been really slow for me during the past 36 hours. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    1. Paul

      Paul

      Can't say I've spotted a problem Mapantz, is it still slow for you today?

    2. Mapantz

      Mapantz

      It has been slow the entire time. The forum used to load nice and fast, even when clicking any threads. It takes 3 or 4 seconds to load the front page of the forum after opening a new tab. It used to load in around 1.5 seconds. I thought it might have been my connection, but it's the same when using my phone via 4G. I do get the cloudflare page popping up quite regularly too.

      Paul

      Strange, I'm not seeing that at all. Our reporting isn't flagging anything either.

      Ya - Memory foam on top of 448 springs. A silent night one. I have been having major back issues with the old one. Sleepies are very important. :)

  21. I've just stress tested the CPU in my PC for 30 minutes at 100%  and it never got above 53°C - Very pleased!

  22. After years of being a techie, I have finally built my own machine! RGB fans & lighting, all sound reactive. Just waiting on a water cooler and rad now.

  23. I'm taking some time out. I've just been given the news that my dad is dying. The hospital have treated all of us so badly, and gave us no information. I'm devastated. :(

  24. My hosting supplier have suffered multiple RAID failures. They have back-ups, but they're months old. Luckily I backed up my server last week. I have a feeling they are going to be getting a lot of emails.

      That's good to hear mumspantz 

    3. Mapantz

      Mapantz

      UPDATE 20:35 -
      We're going to attempt replacement of a single drive in the vision that the RAID array will rebuild and the server will come back online without a full restore needed, we expect this to be done by around 10:30 GMT - There is a 50% chance that this will work, if not we will revert to restoring from backups, however if this does work it will mean that accounts haven't lost the 16 odd hours worth of data since the last backups were taken at midnight.

      That's good news for me either way. I haven't made any changes to anything on my site in the past week, so there's nothing to lose. The 16 hours worth of data is being logged on my computer, so i can update the databases when its back online. A bit of an inconvenience, but that's the IT world for you!

    4. Mapantz

      Back online! A few things to iron out, as the server settings have been reset.
