Hopefully yes.
The disruption was from server resources getting overloaded by constant hacker attacks.
The old host just didn't care much and had some pretty low resources available. Instead of blocking obvious hack attacks (8000 hits per hour) they just shut the site down.
The new host has double the processor power, so this should help...so far no hack attempts, but these &%^&$#ers are bound to try again, we'll see how it goes.
The last post did get me thinking however...there must be a way to make it easier to save the info here....
Sounds like a good winter project.

Things seem to be getting more and more unstable these days, time to fasten the seat belt.

Question: I have already disabled ad blockers but the site keeps saying ad blocker detected, asking me to disable it. What gives?

It's good to be back, well, almost.

So it looks like the site is back up, I thought it was done. 3 or more weeks down is a long time in internet land. Much has already been lost just in pictures alone that are gone.

3 weeks is certainly a long time. Unfortunately, these things happen. As it stands right now, this site takes 1 week (backup from old host and upload to new host) to move from one server to another. That's with my computer running 24/7. As for the missing pics, this is a result of the constant requests for larger limits...not sure any will ever be recovered. I will have to go back to the settings of a few years ago to prevent it from happening again.
