    It went down at 4:25 am to about 3:10 pm.

    I happen to be at the computer when the forum had it's problem.

    A little hint. If out of every 5 minutes 4 are spent saying I don't know when it will be back up it takes significantly more time to do anything.

    I was following your posts on the support forum and got worried. We should really set some backup to our backup. No one wants another cpf like incident.

    We should reconnect at Multitool.org. In case of emergency type thing. It's accessible at work. ;)

    Yep, there was a reason for that. I will have to explain later. I was online at 4am to work on the store. That is going to have to wait till next week maybe.

    I am unplugging the phone. This is day three.....woke up Sunday.

    Next time, ignore those emails and just focus on the problem at hand.

    Another reason to meet up at Multitool.org. Jon can let a mod know and he can do a post like enki did and we'll all know what's going on.

    Glad it's back. There is nowhere else on the web where I feel more comfortable. :D

    Don't worry, backups will be automated very shortly. ;)

    *side note : hosting companies REALLY should be better at alerting their customers when they make a change and being available when they screw up. ;) *

    I began to go into forum withdrawal. I would tear up anytime I looked at one of my knives, guns, lights, or multitools.
    BTW Jon,
    You can now officially blame Bobbie, since catastrophe occurred following her visit. ;)

    We have a temporary odd set up we are running on right now. A more permanent fix will have to wait until after the Spyderco forum knife.
