Great point.However, one doesn't know until it gets under a bigger load.Until then though, it's good to have options.

True - but the TITLE of the first thread is for an earlier outage. I posted again to make more people aware that there is still a current problem. It would be nice if the person who started the first thread revised the title to reflect the current situation as well.

I have merged the two threads. Sites with issues do go up and down and there's little point in raising a new thread each time. I have stickied this thread so that anyone on the PuppyLinux forums looking for info on what's happening, or even to post the reasons for problems, can post them here.

What are the odds of it being permanent?

The forum was up again when I tried it a couple of hours ago.

Now it's down again.

If some evil genius had wanted to discourage potential Puppy Linux users, they couldn't have devised a better way of doing it than these frequent, lengthy Puppy forum outages.

It's up again, at this moment. Seems very slow.

Title says it all.

New Host

Yes, apparently it was a problem with the domain name being renewed. Good news is over on BarryK's blog John said that he was going to move the forum over to a new host!!! No more waiting for posts/searches!

Would someone please post a link to BarryK's blog. I've searched and searched, and I've found a few different things that were called Barry's blog, but most of them are old and none of them mention John moving the forums. As a relatively new Puppy user, it looks to me like everyone talks about Barry's blog, but they always assume that everyone already knows where it is, instead of posting a link to it.

Thank you for taking the time to post those links, racepres.

Google helped me find both of those earlier, but I still can't find Barry's blog entry that ecomoney was referring to when he wrote:

NEVER MIND - I found it. Murga's statement is in one of the many comments underneath this blog entry.

Easter Sunday, 1:25 PM EST. The Puppy Linux forums are down again.

I hope that John Murga will rethink his statement that he's going to move the forums to a new web host "in a couple of months."

Thats a good idea....but.......

Ive just logged on and the forum is down again :-(

Ive dropped a message to John-Murga via skype, but his status is currently "away".

Any news anyone? I hear the forum is undergoing some maintenance at the moment so this is to be expected.

I will change the title of the thread when it is back up, as it pops up fourth under a google search for "puppy linux forum"!

The forum's down again.
I'm trying to get mountcifs-1.5.pet off the forum and I can't find it anywhere else. If anybody has it please send it to me. I'm probably to impatient



Edit: Ok I got it thanks
