    I'll use your thread to comment on our outage. The software that drives the forums (vBulletin) regularly releases updates. Most of them are small bug fixes and they are not really noticed by users. When I do these upgrades, it usually takes 10 minutes and if you don't visit during those 10 minutes, you never even know it happened.

    This one was also a small one but it did something with the database that I did not expect. In doing so, another problem was created. Once realized, fixing was something that was over my head and we had to use professional help to get it straight.

    Obviously, this took 48 hours.

    Sorry for the problem and thanks for your patience!

    If you don't follow TrainBoard on Facebook, you might want to check there anytime there is an outage. We will explain it there.

    For a while there I thought someone tripped over the cord & pulled the plug out of the wall

    Glad to see we're back online!

    Ain't technology great.....when it works like it is supposed to? My old UNIVAC 1 never did that. Come to think of it, it never did a fraction of what modern internet servers do. But if a vacuum tube went out, I could always go down to Radio Shack and pick up a new one to replace it. Enough of my inane babbling.

    Thanks, at least the withdrawal hallucinations are gone. What is amazing is how quickly the posts started back up.
    Thanks,

    Hey Russell, yeah, those 6BG6 and 5U4's came in handy, didn't they? I wonder if any of our younger members recognize those secret codes? Glad to see we are back in business.

    Charlie, my deepest sympathies for I too have spent many similar hours pulling out hair as deadlines came and went with uninformed customer project managers screaming. Thank you for all you do, we definitely appreciate it.

    Jim, don't forget those venerable 5881's (6L6WGB) and 6SN7's. All I can say as a fledging engineer was...thank the Lord for non-glowing filaments, they sure saved a lot of trouble-shooting time and helped us look like geniuses.

    I know a couple of 6L6 tubes in the power stage of your guitar amp make it go to 11. Or so Marshall and Peavy have convinced me.

    My sympathies. I didn't catch a trainboard update in my facebook feed. I'm gonna blame Mark Zuckerberg for that.
