    Thanks for spreading the word Paul! I'm a wee bit grumpy this morning as a result :cuss: but let's all think good thoughts that this can get sorted out soon in my non-existant free time :D

    Hi Critch, sorry man, meant to text you back! My hands are tied at the moment for reasons I can't really go into - plus I'm not the forum 'owner' as such. I've got to try to get more information on what's happened and what can be done about it. I feel very out of my depth! But I know that there are some great people around who can help once I untangle this nonsense, and I appreciate that :D

    Nick Harper forums online... for now?

    Hi all, I don't know what's going on but the boards are back. Will keep looking into how to keep them that way :D

    Still not online from this end..

    Hi Paula,

    Thanks for the update. :)

    I just tried accessing the board, but I got a screen with a message, "sorry the boards are offline, we'll do our best.. etc", along with a login dialog box for administrators only. I tried logging in there with no luck. Could it be that as you're an administrator, you've somehow got access?

    Anyway.. that's what I see from this end.. anyone else?

    Same here, Marcie. I think the board is in maintenance mode. Dunno if Paula has the power to flick the switch...

    Hi all, that's the problem, I was already logged in with my admin username, that's why I saw it. Damn. :blushing: At least it's got the holding message now. *eye roll*

    I wish I did have the power, but I don't think I do. Still waiting for info!

    Well at least something is happening I guess! It'll work out I'm sure! The web is a mystical place it seems...

    It occurs to me I may be able to email everyone from within the service, but I'll have to have something important to say first haha. Stay tuned...

    Forum still down

    Aww . I miss being a curmudgeonly old git on Harperspace. I might have to start doing it here instead.

    Good luck Paula, hope we're back soon.

    Hi guys, back from my jolly, and I'm not even getting the holding page now, I'm being given a different error page - and I can't log out to check if it's just me as an admin (I can't get in anymore) - can someone please let me know what you're seeing?

    I'm bummed out :crying:

    Folks,

    Just noticed that if you click the "forums" link on Nick's website, it takes you directly to the Stormcock home page.

    Which is definitely a good thing because thanks to Paul, we "homeless" Harperspace cadets have found a lovely new dwelling.

    But.. does that mean it's the end for harperspace.co.uk? :( Paula.. any news on that front?

    HarperPR My destiny offers me up like a lamb

    You're on the ball as always, Marcie! What would we do without you.:grouphug: Any more Google alerts?:biggrin:

    I think it's nice here. Very civilised and respectful. And no BAD LANGUAGE! ha ha ha!

    I had no idea that had been done! It actually points to the Nick section of the main stormcock site, which makes a lot of sense.

    I have offered Paula space on the server that runs this site and have offered to help with the possible migration of old posts and accounts if they can be retrieved from the old site. Whether this is possible and whether it will happen, I can't say. I would be perfectly happy for all the Nick fans to come here of course, but I can also understand why he might want a forum that's standalone and not associated with his Dad. I also registered the domain "harperspace.net" just in case it wasn't possible to get control of that domain back from the original guy. Don't bother going there now though :)

    Paul.
