    Everything you said sounded believable.

    Untill you said a Dell guy helped you out.

    I don't believe it. I have called Dell 50 times for something before. 45 of the times I coulden't understand the guy, 4 of the times I knew more than he/she did, and one time.. I got hung up on.

    Glad your experience with Dell was better than mine!

    awesome job!

    I was worried it was a hack attempt..I've been a member on a unrelated forum who were hacked numerous times..similar horrid feeling all data was lost!
    at first i thought I was having computer problems..tried getting access to my account on both laptop an desktop..figured you were down for maintenance!

    Good to see it's all up and running..I had no idea i was addicted to DP until its taken away!

    congrats shawn! :)
    hope you sleep well. and have a great vacation!

    Wow! Seems like you had a tough time Shawn. I am glad that the board is back online.

    At first I thought it was an ISP issue. But later I realized something seriously wrong with DP servers. I was getting nervous seeing DP off line. Am I getting addicted to this board? ;)

    Damn, that was really some hard work.
    Dell was pretty cool to fix that up so fast too.

    The server group is different than the desktop group.

    The Latitude group is different than the Inspiron group.

    You must have a desktop or an Inspiron. :cool:

    When I tried to view the forums this morning, I first got a HTTP error and then that message saying the forums are unavailable. So, I thought poor Shawn, it's not easy to run such a huge forum.

    Anyway, hope nothing horrible happens while we're running on a single server!

    i was watching it go down and it took almost an hour, the site didn't just die in a second. i made a post and on the GC it was listing me as the last post but 2 people had posted in the same thread after me and i was still listed as posting last, then i was looking at the who's online for dupe accounts and the list dropped 25% of the members then i refreshed about 1 minute later and another 25% were dropped from the who's online list.

    about 10 minutes later i refreshed who's online again and 25% more were dropped, so i refreshed again a minutes later and the only person online was me.

    i took a screen shot and posted it in S&F and it posted, but when i went back to edit the post it was gone, but i took a screen shot of the post i posted too.

    Geez Samantha you have thee skillz. You should become an investigative reporter with all that attention to detail.

    No serious. You should....either that or we should have a member of the month or mod for a day. Maybe a promotion.
