Forum Outage

Our apologies for the forum (and some parts of the site) being down today for about 2 hours and also 2 days ago for about 3 hours.

The hosting company gave the following reasons:

'temporary global routing issue with our isp provider and the sql database server'
'problem in the database server'

If these problems persist then we'll switch hosting companies.

I was wondering if you have all the archived posts (by archived, I mean all the posts people have made) backed up, in case they tell you all data was lost? Just curious.
Yes - I'm a backup junkie!
If the hosting company disappeared we'd be back up and running in a few hours with very little loss. We actually ended up with this hosting company because the previous hosting company had a hardware failure and I don't think it took very long to be back up and running here.
