    Very slow at 10 pm Eastern time. It took 3 tries before the forum loaded. I'm on a cable modem, but I also had another site being slow to load but it didn't take 3 tries.

    I think I keep hitting the anti-lottery. This is not the same problem we have been having. We might have a bad drive this time.

    I sent the hosting company a message.

    They said I have a brand new drive. They said they have seen it be nothing more than the physical connection on a new drive and reseating and changing the cable can fix the problem.

    They took about an hour to see my ticket. I don't know if someone is physically at the data center now or not. I am going to try and coordinate a time for them to try and reinstall the drive.

    I going to hit refresh on the trouble ticket every 10 minutes till I get a response to my last message. If I can get them to reseat the drive tonight that will be 15-30 minutes of down time.

    Fingers crossed that this latest problem is nothing more than needing to reseat a drive.

    I just got a message from the hosting company. They asked if 10:30 PM Central time is good for me. I just replied yes.

    The server will be powered down at 10:30 PM. If all goes well 15-30 minutes of downtime. Sending out a mass alert.

    As you have seen in the mass alert the server will be powered down at 10:30 PM Central time to re-seat the main hard drive. Look at it being a 15-30 minute job.

    I hope this will take care of the problem.

    You could wait 20 minutes to sign off. It is not going down until 10:30 PM Central time. :)

    If this is nothing more than a simple hard drive connection I might need to start another 24 hour log since this one is tainted. :p

    If things look good the first 30 minutes after we come back up I will start a brand new 24 hour slow server log. I am really trying to get server related forum issues stamped out once and for all.
