Not trumps fault. Democrats fault all the way.

Thanks, @Meanbean21! You guys have no idea how stressful this has been


I blame Trump, I bought this server last year so it has to be his fault LOL

I'm still getting vague errors in the logs that I can't quite track down. It's complicated because I'm running a backup before trying anything, and since running a backup slows everything down I'm waiting until midnight to start (when the traffic has died down). But it takes 2 1/2+ hours to do a backup, so I get to start working on it at 2:30 or 3am!

The server load seems normal right now, but if it starts to slow down then just know that it's probably related to the logging and I'll continue working on it tonight (Friday night). Worst case scenario, if there's a complete meltdown then I have everything backed up as of midnight, so there's much less risk of losing anything this time

BTW, I have to say you've done an excellent job of getting things mostly back to normal.

Tell you what New I'd be happy if Trump was called to account for a fraction of the bad things he's done during his misbegotten existence.

Sorry for the last 15 minutes or so!! I almost had a heart attack, but it's OK, nothing major and nothing lost

It's clear to me that one of two things happened:

1. the Secret Service infiltrated the server on behalf of one politician or another; or

2. a witch or warlock cursed the site.

The only other explanation is that the new server had a faulty hard drive, and once a bad sector was reached it caused a crash. But that seems like a real stretch when compared to the other possibilities
$$$$$

Just blame President Donald J Trump. He's been accused of everything bad in the world.. Hope you get it fixed without it costing much. Maybe Biden could send you a relief check. You know he's awful good to the people.

That was definitely weird situation indeed

Haha, if you're ever banned then I'll still let you read everything! I'll let you tease yourself and go crazy wanting to reply, until you promise to stop doing whatever made you get banned


FWIW, though, I haven't banned anyone in at least a year, probably 2 or 3 years. Except for scammers, of course.

If there's ever a time that you can't see the pages, then the problem is either with your internet provider, our firewall, or there's a major problem on my end. In any of those cases, please contact me!

Tell you the truth I thought I was BANNED again and i sit all day Sunday trying to Figure out what i said to get banned again

Just to give you all an update, I think that all of the usernames are restored now! If you registered a username after December 19, 2020 and can't get logged in, please email me and let me know the username and I'll see what I can figure out: jason@gonc.net


Tomorrow (Monday) I will work on restoring the Events Calendar, Friend Finder, Personals, and any updates to the Restaurants.

I'm afraid that any Private Message sent between December 19, 2020 and around 10pm on May 15, 2021 have been permanently lost, though I ran a data recovery on the old drive and it didn't restore them, and I've looked everywhere for any other backup but come up empty. I'm really sorry

A hacker can crash a hard drive. There is some way to use sound waves to cause vibrations which will crash a hard drive. I don't know much about this but I have heard about it.

Okay Jason you can tell us, did you give up a new used RV that needs servicing and a New sailboat for the payout???? Seriously though, hate you're having problems but who doesn't??....
