    I thought it was for the 10-year anniversary of the failed Y2K scare, just make the site not function for a while.

    Happy New Year everyone! icon_biggrin.gif

    Hi guys,

    Ugh. Somewhere around 11:30pm EST, we had a hardware failure which I just fixed now. The server that failed was the one piece of equipment that I don't have redundancy for yet (of course). I'll get that taken care of in the next couple of weeks.

    Happy new year to everyone and sorry about the downtime!

    Srq,

    The links will start working in a little while. Certain caches need to fill up before you'll see all of the photos on the home page etc...

    Sorry again for the mess.

    Chris,
    It appears that "who last visted me" no longer appears on the main page. icon_eek.gif
    (Now has Man Of The Day contenders in it's place.) icon_rolleyes.gif
    Is this an error in design or a permanent mishap? Or will it be put back to the way it was? icon_confused.gif

    Yes, I know you can still access it, however, the original placement was much better.
    Cheers,
    Keith

    Yeah, I didn't find it until this morning (Fri, Jan 1), and then it was resolved in less than a half hour. When I saw only 36 guys counted online I knew it was a system problem, and them prolly like me, just banging on the door to get in at that moment, only able to get half logged on.

    Thanks for the fix, Chris, and Happy New Year!

    I have also noticed something else different. It no longer says whether people are financial supporters of the site. icon_eek.gif

    Does anyone have an explanation? I want to keep financially contributing to this great site.
    Cheers,

    Hi guys,

    The "who viewed me" list on the home page will return as more members view your profiles. That was part of the cache that we lost last night.

    The list of supporters is gone permanently. RealJock is now a 100% free site. I'll be removing the last of the supporter functionality this coming week.

    Thanks again for being patient with this outage. I'll be installing more hardware over the next couple of weeks to (hopefully) prevent it from happening again.

    Thank you for answering my questions. But what's the bloody catch to the members now that the site is free?
    2 reasons I supported this site:
    One, it's a great site and it deserved it.
    Two, I thought by financially supporting it monthly that the contributors would not get subjected to advertisments. (Plus I would assume that we contributors would have more pull then the bloody free-lunchers as to direction, disputes, etc.)
    Will this now change?
    Cheers,
    Keith
