Nov 24/2015: We're ba-ack!

Post by Oscar »

Hi everyone,

I'm very sorry for the sudden disappearance of the forum! My apologies. In the background some upgrades were done on the MySQL database, which led to a compatibility issue with the PHP software. With the help of our hosting provider, we managed to upgrade the PHP version and fix a few issues in the database. After that, the forum came back online. Phew...

Best regards,
Oscar

Hi Oscar,

while sending a post there was a php-message at the bottom of my browser window, but was to fast gone to read it completely. Maybe you'll have a look at that?

Hear hear, too right. Great to have you back. Sometimes you don't know what you've got until you've lost it.
Thank you all.

I don't have much of a social life so greatly value the contact with like minded folk on here and a couple of other forums which have let me slip in under the radar :wink: Having run a non interactive website some years ago I can imagine the backroom work needed in general and particularly when things go wrong here, so thanks very much Oscar and all involved in keeping us connected, informed (and amused) :beer:

Thanks for the comments, everyone. Appreciated. Peter, I'll keep a look out for potential errors. Really fixing them might be beyond my skill level, but I'll do what I can.

Regards,
Oscar

Hi
Thanks for the great information on the forum. I have the use of a Power Major that belongs to a neighbour - on the basis that if I got it going then I could use it. So far so good - the forum has come to my rescue several times, but I have never posted before.

Now I have a question. I did find a link to workshop manuals on the site last year - but now I can't find them. Could someone please let me know where they are now?

Many thanks
