    For a moment there I was wondering if Joe had put all his money in Pounds just before the Brexit vote was counted......

    Seriously though, good to be back up and running. :)

    Sorry for that momentary interruption to service. Not quite sure what happened but we're back now. :)

    Apparently there are some minor teething issues at the new data centre. Everything should be sorted out shortly. :banghead:

    My apologies for that extended downtime last night. Unfortunately I am unable to say why it happened as I have not received a satisfactory explanation from ASF's host. Needless to say, I am now in the market for a new host.

    I have been with https://ventraip.com.au/ for about ten years. Found them very reliable.
    While my requirements are but a fraction of yours, it could definitely be worth asking them for a quote.

    Thanks for the tip Pixel. I am beginning to make a shortlist of possible hosts and will take a good look at Ventraip.

    A +1 for VentraIP here too. I use their "no frills" Zuver web hosting and have nothing but praise for them. Fast, friendly support when it's needed.

    Just a heads up that ASF will be experiencing some downtime this evening as we move from one server to another. I expect that the forum will be closed from around 10pm AEDT and should be back online when you wake up tomorrow morning.

    I'm hoping everything goes smoothly, but as previous experience with server migrations has taught me, it sometimes doesn't. :shifty:

    Thanks for the heads up Joe …… Current server not up to expectations/other reasons out of curiosity?:) Cheers.

    Needed to find a better deal. I've been on the current server for more than two years and it's time for a change. :)

    Thanks. I'm a little behind schedule but the server migration should start within the next hour.

    ...and we're back. :)

    I think we only lost one post, as it was posted after the database was copied across to the new server. Other than that I think everything is intact.

    If anyone notices any issues, please let me know.

    Hi folks, I made a mistake after the migration completed last night. I reopened the forum on both IP addresses and now we have some new posts that are located in the old database as a result of slow DNS propagation.

    The posts I can see right now that are located in the old database are:

    One by Zaxon in this thread.
    One by Zaxon in the NHC - New Hope Corporation thread.
    One by sptrawler in the NHC - New Hope Corporation thread.
    Two by leyy in the APT - Afterpay Touch Group thread.
    One by Toyota Lexcen in the APT - Afterpay Touch Group thread.
    One by ducati916 in the duc's 'Margin of Safety' investment thread.
    Quite a few posts by basilio in a number of different threads.

    That was a very silly thing for me to have done and I apologise for any inconvenience caused. o_O

    I have closed the forum on the old installation so no further posts can be made over there.

    I have just noticed that the forum search function is not working. I will try and get this fixed ASAP.

    The forum search index has been rebuilt and is now functioning correctly.

    It's all ephemeral. After all many of us don't actually need to read anything to know it's not worth reading. :laugh:
