Any sign of it coming back Col, or is it lost for good?

Sorry harry, been working all weekend, so didn't get a chance to look at it. There was a problem with the archive on Friday, but hopefully I'll get a proper look at it tomorrow, to see what I can do.

I'll let you know how I get on.

I'll have an update on this tomorrow evening.
Some of the backups are corrupt, but I've found one that a friend of mine is decompressing as we speak. :)

Cheers Col. Would be nice to able to access the previous posts for a while longer at least. Would be good to be able to remind myself what my open long-term bets are too! :)

Never thought about that harry

That's a good point, It's very easy to forget about long term bets.

That's a security measure I set up to avoid spammers contacting members, and offhand I can't remember.

I'll go and have a look :)

Any new users, and I'm sorry you have all been bundled into this,
Have to make a minimum 10 posts before you can use the PM service.

That's the Archive back to the puntersmate style, and as before links in the headers to bring you back here.

:thumbs Cracking stuff Col, much appreciated. Will be very useful to me to be able to refer back to my and others' posts.

Think I need to start keeping better records of my own as well though, partly so I can do more analysis and partly so I'm not overly dependent on the forum always being available!

Col, I've just noticed there's a slight gap between where the archive ends and the current forum starts. Not a grumble, I'm grateful for having that much of the archive available. If you can "see" anymore than we've got access to, could you just check I've not missed anything from my "longterm and antepost bets" thread? I don't think I'm missing any and I can always check my accounts but if you can check without too much effort that would be great.

Evening Harry
I was aware there was a slight gap, But I was hoping nothing useful would be missed. I'll have another look mate.
But I'd check your accounts to be on the safe side.

No prob Col, I do check them fairly regularly to make sure they've not done me anyway! Can't remember posting anymore new bets, just knew I'd updated after the 2 penalty misses by Bent.

I have been having trouble accessing the site this afternoon, when I can it is a struggle to log in and if I manage that it is a pain trying to navigate around the threads. A total go slow.

I am having no problem with any other web sites.

Wondering if there is a problem your end col? :)

Hi peanut

As you may have noticed, the site has been slow to load for a few days.

As a result, the Hosts decided to do some maintenance to help sort out this problem.

Unfortunately they, in their wisdom decided to go ahead without warning me.
The result is the Forum has been down most of the day. 8):

And I'm not sure it's up to speed yet

Sorry Ladies and Gents.

Hi peanut
I was online today with my phone and didn't experience any slowness.
Although granted it has been slow at times over the last few days.

As far as I'm aware they are still looking at the issue, but it does seem intermittent.

I've just spoken to the Hosts, and they have recreated the Web Space for Puntersmate. Hopefully that should speed up the loading.
