What went wrong? Do we need to do a fundraiser for a new server?

The Great Blackout of 2016 - another milestone in the history of this forum.

Takes me back to The Great Food Fight of 2002.

Oh boy, but gee, I got a lot of work done on my own player piano in the last few days! Yes, I get work done on others' pianos, but this time I'm working on my own!(I'm using the excuse that I need a piano to test rolls on before I sell them!)

THANK YOU for ALL the time you put into fixing this Chris; we would be completely lost without you!

I am glad everybody is happy but what happened has just been the tipping point to get us into the 21st century.

More to follow, has not been a fun last few days for myself.

It is not really about the cost of a new server, our yearly costs for a service like this is approx. $600 per year.

Now if you add my salary in there .........

Chris,
It takes something like this to remind us all what a fantastic job you do! Guess that's why you make the big bucks! :-)
Nobody was rooting harder for you to get this fixed than my wife, who wanted me out of her hair and back on the forum!
Seriously Chris, thank you for all that you do for us. We are very lucky to have you.

Thanks Chris.
I have had a lonesome weekend. It rained here, even hail. I thought it was spring, because no rain in February and all the flowers were blooming early. Winter came back over the weekend and too wet and cold to do anything but stay in, so I missed the forum.

Chris, you do a very good job.
Norm

BTW... If we don't need a new server, can we take up a collection to clone Chris? Since he does the work of a whole crew maybe that would give him a break :-) Thanks Chris

I guess this means I can close my Forum withdrawal therapy sessions now. Everyone is cured, thanks to Chris! I have to say it's been fun talking and emailing with so many members, and glad to see how important the Forum is to folks.

My favorite comment from someone when I told him it might be another day or two before the Forum was back, he said, "well, okay, but now what am I supposed to do?!"

I will also add, I did not have one harsh comment about the service interruption. Every one was so kind and understanding. And for that, I thank you all!

Have a great day on the Forum!

Susan

Thanks again so much Chris! This last couple days (forumless) reminds me (before I retired) of a sign that our secretary had on her desk that said,......"nobody knows what I do until I stop doing it!"

That doesn't quite apply to you Chris, because we all know that the website always requires your constant attention, but on the rare occasion of a serious "crash",.......well,....let's see,......how can I put this,........we think of you often! Thanks again Chris,......harold

As large as the T community is, perhaps if the MTFCA would publish here on the forum the requirements of the server upgrades,someone out there in T land may have access to some lightly used equipment from a large corporation upgrade or something and could get the club hooked up with what it needs.Never know Freighter Jim could haul a server out from California if he has the space and save there to? Not all donations to the club have to be T or cash, a server or boards or mainframes are just as donate-able.
