There is no cloud! Only other peoples computers. Cloud is not warrent for stability.

lol how the masses are brain washed by the hype:hammer: nowadays they want no real physical hard drives in computers any more and only 'cloud' so big brother has access to all anytime and the minions eat it up

hmm. not the first time awnet goes offline. seems not very easily maintainable considering blacklisting stuff and such, now it may occure its due to the technics used. i understand the ambition to run a site on an antique quarter of century old setup, but its a bit pity for that dumb application. given the ownder are os4 engaged, why dont they run it on some x1k or whatever has been considered more powerful and contemporary? are there stability issues even under *ix preventing this?

now, funny to think what would happen if it all went down the drain at once. with it fair amount of overall trolling backup, a fair piece of historical eveidnce. who knows, with majority of this lost, chances for some sort of restart of relationships in the scene might even improve.

not that i expect the individual recall to be erased immediately, just some sort of simple fate strike, perhaps unexpected for most, might be changing the course of this particular narration.

I have no experience of the site, but am trying to be positive here.

It sounds like it was due for a complete rebuild anyway, so maybe that is what is happening?

Sorry I missed it if it was clarified somewhere, but was this site really running on a single A3000UX? Kudos if it was, but hardly what I'd use for a web server in 2017, lol. :lol:
