Not gonna happen, at least, not by design.

I do wonder why Nominet have got heavy handed after so many years. Perhaps it's to do with online security matters.

I was unable to log in for two days.  I kept getting error messages.

I think as Nominet suspended the domain for the update to the WHOIS, the records were duly changed and after re-activation it has to propagate again. This can take up to 72 hours I believe and would explain why some people could get back in while others had to wait.

As long as you're still here, Six, we're good.

I know some have had some intermittent issues logging in and I am no exception. The server looks in good shape with medium and stable server loads, so it might be that I haven't done any maintenance on our site for months, if not years, and we have a little error somewhere.

This weekend I'll do some housekeeping and check the tables properly in an attempt to get us running smoothly again.

I had intermittent problems.  Today I got a forbidden message, but it was trying to log in on the last url info, so I cleared everything but the diasfora.co.uk and was able to get the home page & to log in as normal.

I don't know if that little tidbit helps w/your maintenance, but it does explain a little about my access problems.  I think a few days ago, I tried this as well, but it did not work, so whatever you did in the interim helped.

Same here.  Although I don't feel insecure on the site.  Funny that.

If you access the site using https I believe only certain, 3rd party elements remain unsecure.

The server is shocking at the moment and I have threatened to jump ship with the host. They are apologetic and are trying to get this server stable so we'll hang on a little longer.

The hosting package is up for renewal on the 14th of this month and if we are still getting the unacceptable server errors at that time, I think we should migrate elsewhere. Lets hope that we don't lose anyone in an alternate dimension like we did the last time we migrated.

Internal Server Error.

Wow, they're really stepping up the customer service to try and keep you as a customer.

It's like they're running the thing on an eMachine.

just one little time change so a draft board in 1968 turns down the bribe to accept "bone spurs" and we are home-free.

I don't know what happened to this company but since it was taken over by JaguarPC all that seemed to improve was their ability to raise hosting costs. Everything else went south.

They have offered to migrate us already so I might suggest they do that sooner rather than later.

 Thanks for your help.  I frequently can't get into the site, so it would be great to have that resolved.  Let's hope this migration will fix it.

I accidentally charged my phone overnight. I've been keeping it at 10% for a WEEK waiting on the new charger because Samsung said I needed to buy one with "adaptive fast charging".

I'm still smarter than the hosting company here. Holy poo. If you're wanting a client to renew, you roll out the red carpet. This feels like an intentional "Yeah, we suck. golly off out of our model village!"

I've got all sorts of goofy poo messages. Good old SMF, that ISE, a couple times I got 403's.

It's like my dealings with Samsung. Treat the customer like poo so they buy something more expensive.

Six, I posted a thing about stargate but the server ate it. You were right, Jack got snaked, but the Tok'ra fixed it before it became a problem. Their name means "Against Ra", the baddie who got blown up in the movie "STARGATE".  So like, Jack should charge them royalties, since he killed the guy. Even dropped a damn fine one liner. "Give my regards to King Tut, bottom". His Flat top is also legendary. RDA admitted he couldn't pull it off.

I forgot the transport rings were in the movie, dang. They even have that fantastic sound effect "gigishigur"
