wonder if the server(s) is(are) fully operational. get the message : "server is busy, try again later" when trying to access gallery or for some threads.
do u have the same experience?
CS seems really fast this morning.
Could it be a dream or is the new hardware installed? No updates from Admin, so I'll just assume I'm dreaming. Maybe a lot of CSers are... (dreaming, that is), that's why access is pretty quick.
Its great to have the forum back =)
However I think the search function along with some others are missing?
Life is about choices.

First of all, great job. I know it is not easy.
Since now you have 2 servers, and on Microsoft, can run NLP (network load balancing) to share the load between 2 servers.
Dear Edmund & Admins,
First of all, I have to emphasize my appreciation for getting the system up and running after the unexpected downtime that made us realised Clubsnap has been an integral part of our lives.
Being a systems guy myself, I can fully understand the stress and urgency to get the systems up soonest as tens of thousands of users are waiting eagerly for the upcome.
And I believe you guys must have breath a sign of relieve when you were able to recover the backup AND restore the functionality on a new server. As all IT personnel know, backups do not always work when we most needed it.
Anyway, I hope you guys catch up with the lost time with your family once the system stablised. We all learn from experience and hopefully, this incident will help us put in place preventive plans to make things less stressful for the administrators in the future.
Cheers, Great Effort and I do hope things return to normal for you guys soon....
Luck has not been on ClubSNAP side.
One after another, ClubSNAP server was affected due to Motherboards or Power supplier failure.
We have purchase 2 ($180 each) replacement power supply, but the working replacement Motherboard from Asus yet to arrive. The first 2 Motherboard sent by Asus Taiwan, 1st was correct model but a difference version, therefore the RAID will not work correctly, 2nd Motherboard was Damage due to the courier miss-handling.
Asus said they will be sending another replacement Motherboard shortly. Hope we will get a working unit this time.
Our new Dell Server ($10k) has arrive and we will be setting it up shortly.
We hope all ClubSNAP members be patient with the current performance and hiccups of ClubSNAP servers.
Think the Admins deserve a round of drinks when this is all over ...
A picture a day keeps the blues away!
Really appreciate all the hard work and effort put in by the admin. Thanks!
Thanks a lot for all the hard work admins!

Cheers for the Admin of CS and Csers.. Felt a part of me lost during this down period but I believe most of us have confidence and persist to log on daily during this period!
