    Thanks Grant!

    BTW, the directory is cached at the wayback machine. So we still have access to view what was there.

    Further to smellgood4u's post above: for those who don't know about it, Wayback Machine is a tool that takes you to archived copies of web pages. This could be useful to us because it allows us to see a page that's down, as it looked before it went down.

    Wayback Machine is here:

    http://archive.org/web/web.php

    Copy the address of the page you're trying to see, and past it into the Wayback Machine (making sure the http:// part isn't repeated). It will show you a calendar of when that page was last archived. Click on the most recent and voila, you have your page.

    Apologies to all those that know this already, I am aiming this post at those folks who are unaware that the internet is cached/archived!

    Pages wouldn't load while I was up, late last night. Other than that it has been much better.

    Best of luck with the future upgrades, Grant. I trailed off from using Basenotes a while back due to the downtime. The Huddler folks have done good things at StyleForum so I'm looking forward to whatever comes next with great anticipation.

    Update - The Directory Pages - like this one are back online. As the Directory Search is still offline, you'll need to use the "Google search" on the top right of each page for now.

    Apologies for the piecemeal returning of everything. If it all comes back at once, it's more difficult for me to tell what's working and what isn't. I've spend about 5 hours tonight going through the code, and databases which are used by the Fragrance Profile Pages, so that they are a lot more efficient. I'll get working on the review pages, wardrobes etc tomorrow once I've seen how this holds out.

    Cheers all, and good night x

    Thanks for the update Grant. What are your plans for the members that have lost there true post count for some unknown reason during this difficult time, like me? It should be around 1100.
    I appreciate all that you do! Thanks so much!

    The forum slowed to a crawl tonight. I tried clicking on links and it would take refreshing many times trying to get the page to load. Posting is diffucult, sometimes it posts, other times it doesn't. I hope it gets fixed again. Could it be a DOS type attack to bully the owners to switch hosts? It seems odd that the first fix was the directory because it could mask the DOS attack as just an over taxed server if the intention was for a host to try and get basenotes to leave the old host for a new one. Is that too much of a conspiracy theory?

    Grant,

    Thank you so much for stopping what you are doing to fix my problem!!!! You are the BEST!! I love Basenotes and will wait it out with you till the bugs are gone. It's too good of a website to let go down the drain!

    Thanks and Cheers!

    On the serious side, yes, thanks Grant for your hard work on the website - we all understand that it is quite an undertaking.

    Having let the site run with half the directory up for two days, it seems that the crashy bits are now confined to within the period of 4.30 - 8am GMT. Hopefully this will help diagnose the problem, In the meantime, I'm in London today but i'm going to see if I can swiftly get through the code for one of the other sections that is down before I leave.

    I am clueless about these things, but I have always noticed when I am online (and that's very often during the week) that at 6 am. your time the system collapses for about 2-4 minutes. I always thought that maybe it was a backup thing or so.
