Next Friday's shutdown . . .
« on: August 10, 2013, 06:07:46 PM »
How long is the shut-down anticipated to last?

I'm not a member of Facebook, so I can't check the progress from there . . . or can I, without having a Facebook account?

Just curious because I will miss my e-hell relax time when it's not available. :'(


Thank you, Ehelldame for keeping us upgraded and very well maintained. ;D

You can.  I'm not on Facebook and I've checked the last few times the site's been down.   :)

I didn't really notice that it was down at all.  I've been off and on all evening.  I did notice that the Dame's note in the top right corner of the site is gone, so I'm guessing everything is done?  Or has been aborted for some reason.
I have CDO.  It is like OCD but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be.

That was fast!

For some reason I was picturing that the site would be down for days.

Thanks, EhellDame! I already notice an improvement in speed. ;D

It actually wasn't done because the hosting provider failed to install a crucial piece of software.   But the good news is that when it does happen, the impact on forum operation should be minimal or not noticeable at all.

No searches yet.  The thing to be fixed relates to the search function.

LOL! Thanks for the update.

Placebo speed boost, then?  :-[


Or maybe my internet got some sort of bump in speed . . . I'll have to check out other sites that were a bit sluggish. I wasn't paying much attention to them 'cause, you know, e-hell is most important!  ;D
