The server went down again this afternoon. Called the host and asked for them to make good the promise of a new server please.
No can do. The person who told me this was apparently not authorised to make such promises.
I then listened to a load of waffle and bollocks about how their techs were close to getting a "handle" on the problem and that all wold be good soon...
I asked them to cut the BS and come clean as politely as I could. I just got an anodyne "Yes, we have a problem but quite frankly we've not got a clue really.." To cap it all they.d closed the original support ticket as resolved...
I'm beginning to lose the will. My stress levels are building dangerously over this and I find I'm watching the forum constantly, even at work, just waiting for it to crash. The time I'm wasting listening to music on hold calling the host and the cost of it is really beginning to annoy me now. I know every bloody tune the host uses on their music on hold
It's now invading and dominating my life. That's not good.
Please continue to bear with me on this. I know how frustrating and annoying it is and I don't need to be told. If you find it frustrating, try it from my end of things.
I will be demanding a replacement server shortly. If the forum goes down for a lengthy period, it will be because I'm still trying to sort things out.
The temptation is very strong now to say "F it" and pull the plug but I'll not do that if it can possibly be avoided.
