It's back (?)

Post by daveB » 05 Oct 2019 18:13

If this posts goes through -

Many thanks to John Faulkner and anyone else involved for getting the forum up and running again - it must have been a right pain when it didn't go smoothly to start with.

Hello John and good work bringing back the forum.

Good Dx

Thanks Pascal. I am VERY relieved it is back as it very nearly wasn't.

The chat room is not linked from the board directly, but that is something which needs attention. You can join here:

I have Discord running on two PCs but this afternoon I was trying to post a link and it would not respond checked mouse was OK then refreshed page then it just sat there loading so go to the other PC and it worked fine posted link OK.
I went out and on my return it was working fine on the problem PC without doing anything to it very strange in fairness Discord does work fine most of the time unlike Skype and Hangouts.

Working at the moment here at least. Maybe their server failed. We don't have any control over this room, so if it goes down, there's nothing much we can do.
