Yes, its been the last two days, was ok when I went to bed but I couldn't get on in the morning. It was fixed pretty soon Fri but took longer today. I had to e-mail one of the other members to make sure it wasn't at my end.

lets hope it don't happen again tonight.

FSM usually posts a notice warning that the server would be down for service.

...............I thought at first either the server crashed due to a software upgrade hiccup or an un-dead former member got his hands on the keys to the administrator's office.

Server is obviously up and running now, however.

I'm sure Tim will fill us in on events.

Good morning everyone,

We did have a hiccup Saturday morning. As Spruce said, I'm here to fill you in.

Every 24 hours, the community refreshes itself. Basically, it dumps old data and does a bunch of other maintenance and then reboots. Typically, this happens in the background. Saturday, for whatever reason, the community had an unhappy time of it. We've taken precautions to keep this from happening again and are digging deeper into the coding to find out what caused it.

Sorry for the interruption in transmission. Now get back to building outstanding models!

Tim
