Our drummer has died.

 

Our board was dead, well I'm sorry a lot of the posts post 2016 are gone.  The database was hosed so many times.  Please accept apologies.  We need a place, today, now.  So this is the best that can be done on short notice.  Hopefully we don't have to do this again.

 

If you can't log in with your ID/Password, email your user name, your real name (I want to make sure we get the right people matched up with their correct board names!) and I will reset your password and mail it back to you.  Sorry about all of this.  Love to you all

Yay! Good to be back.

You're the best, Joe. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for all that you do for our little community...our home.

I'm very happy the board is back. Thank you Joe.

 

But.

 

I wasn't super stoked about how the board was shut-down. It happened repeatedly, and then finally, with no notice, or seemingly no explanation. It would give a couple heaves of breath, but then it just went lights out.

 

What was the deal? Was there an explanation? Because it missed me if there was.

Our host has had many issues.  The database server was crashing repeatedly and they were very unresponsive. The database corrupted two different ways.  I restored many backups and they were corrupted too.  I had to reach back to a much earlier backup and restored it twice, and we ran for a couple of weeks no issue, then the database server crashed multiple times and corrupted the data again.  Recently things have been more stable with the host.  Last Friday night, I restored the database again to the same known good backup and here we are.

 

I'll take more frequent backups and longer term look to move to a new hosting company and do some much needed upgrades to the board software.

The Biker Bar may have cracks in the walls, filthy bathrooms and stink of stale beer; it's still our Biker Bar!
