    Default How do we keep this place up?

    Josh, do you need donations? Please let us know what we can do to ensure that RPF is up and stable..

    God forbid it goes down during an election or other urgent action

    Yea, things would have been normal this last week but we had some outside interference and evidently hard drive problems.

    Sorry about the downtime. I have brought a 3rd party on to do monitoring (not the NSA) for the next six months. That contract will renew if all goes well.

    Don't need money at this time. Thanks.

    Josh has done a great job at keeping this place up. One hiccup in .... how many years now? 6 or 7? I am not in panic mode yet.

    Default OMG!!! - The forum is back up!!! - What happened???

    Just asking...

    Public education is not education ... it is schooling.
    Our military is not defense ... it is warmongering and empire building.
    Government police do not protect ... they control.
    Regulations do not regulate ... they protect the status quo.
    Government banks do not distribute money based on effort ... it is gifted to close friends ... and some of it trickles down.

    The result is war, poverty, fear, chaos, and hopelessness for most people with abundance for a few elite.

    Haha. Me too. The other day when I got the database error trying to come here my wife caught me just staring at the screen for a few minutes. She said I looked like a lost child. Pretty freaking hilarious.

    Well, it's definitely still unstable, at the least. Hopefully now that it's back up, page load speeds will be improved to the point that the recent plague of double posting will trail off a bit.

    Ha! I felt a little lost too. I don't post much but I didn't get my morning fill of rpf news. I started daydreaming about conspiracy theories relating to the forums. Like the government took the site down in order to install software spy tracking devices on all of our computers. lol.

    There is a minor message board we used cira 2007-2008 that is still available, or Josh could set one up. For down times, diff net, diff server. Maybe 2 threads - general and lets gt the main board back up, this is what we are seeing... This is the status.

    I can see ppl donating for a backup and it's not that hard to re-direct a IP if you are the owner.

    I actually got some work done. Not expecting that to be a habit ......
    Out of every one hundred men they send us, ten should not even be here. Eighty will do nothing but serve as targets for the enemy. Nine are real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, upon them depends our success in battle. But one, ah the one, he is a real warrior, and he will bring the others back from battle alive.

    I actually got in yesterday. Don't know why, but i couldn't navigate around worth a darn so I gave up trying. I don't know anything about computers or the internet, could it be a virus?

    No, we were working on it without turning it off. I don't believe you have anything to worry about at this time.

    I'd be interested too, if outsiders take this one down at a key organization point.

    But I just waited for this one to come up.

    It was mentioned in a recent post about this issue. Remembered it. Went over and very few folks from here remembered it or noticed the link.

    I don't remember the URL, but it's recent - considering downtime. I think in the suggestions sub-forum.
