This reminds me to ask if the Tokai forum is backed up on CD or elsewhere once in while?

From http://thegearpage.net/

The Gear Page is offline.


We had a hard disk failure on Wednesday, April 26, 2006.

We are working at getting the site back up as soon as possible. We are doing everything in our power to get the Forum up.

We will update this page as we move towards getting the Forum back up.
**UPDATE**
TGP: Story of Disaster and now, Part II, by Brian Scherzer:

We have had a major disaster. I just hung up from talking to the folks at our webs service provider. Flat out, ALL of the data is gone....zilch, zero! I had been trying to get a live person for a couple of days and finally got a tech, who told me that all data was lost. The backup is nowhere to be found....and they somehow "lost" the original hard drive, which we could have sent to a service to have the data extracted.

We are extremely bummed, but there is nothing we can do about this now. To say it mildly, I am not happy with the new service provider we have, but we have learned a lesson.......trust no provider and make sure that we have backups on our own computers rather than just relying on the service provider to keep us safe from this kind of crash and burn.

To cut to the chase, this means that we have to start over from ground zero. It is now planned that we will re-open TGP on May 15th (maybe sooner). Alec has to do a fresh install of the vbulletin software and then do the many tweaks that had been done before. He will also add the newest version of MySQL so that the search function works like it is supposed to. Everyone will have to register again, but the "good news", if there is ANY good news here, is that people can have the same arguments they had in the past. There will also be a revision to our recent rules.....far less rules. I'm too bummed out at the moment to write more. I'll add to this tonight when I get home from work.

Our friends on the Birds & Moons.com Forum have setup a temporary "haven" for us on their Forum. Click Here.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

The hosting package I have includes backups. I also backup to my local PC once a month. The hosting company (LiquidWeb.com) is based in the US with onsite tech support that is excellant.
