Site Outage 8/16/13

Post by AdminSteve » Fri Aug 16, 2013 3:02 pm

As some of you noticed we had a database issue earlier today. Site is back and we will be doing some more database clean up work in the next few days so hang in there. :wink:

Sorry for interruption. STFs database is very large. It causes problems. Particularly so, when we do updates and make changes. We are experimenting with a couple of upgrades that have not "fit right out of the box". Bear with us. We'll get there.

Hats off to AdminSteve again for bringing the site back from the dead! :D

Steve somehow manages to stay up 24 hours a day, keep a job and manage a family. I don't get it......

Did I mention the pay stinks.

Hopefully, we'll be back to regular hours.

Thanks for patience.

I had to resort to TOS. Luckily I found Dusty Mojave's old posts there!

LOL :D I guess it says something if members are reduced to reading old posts on TOS.

Admin Steve and Doc, thank you two very much for keeping STF up and running. Because of you the crime rate in numerous cities is kept down.

Too true. TOS just doesn't cut it for offroad content!

Pile always refers to the signal to noise ratio. I know this. When STF goes off the air, I get 25 emails complaining about it from people I never heard of. I guess everyone else reads classifieds for a while.

STF appreciates the kind words from loyal members.

We're are trying to get the site compatible with mobile devices, so the young bucks can get their updates in real time on their iphones. Steve has tried a couple of times without success. There are a couple of particulars about STF that make things not just point and click. But we'll keep trying.

thanks guys! with all the buzz in this forum the last few months, everytimg the site goes down I assume there is some slick new upgrade or update going on in the background, so tinker away! looks like photo resizing is a thing now, or is that my imagineation?

eitherway looks like its about time for me to put some more money into that coffer up there.
