Ah yes.. it somehow got reset to "No subscription" rather than "no email notificaton".

I finally figured out that was my problem too. For some reason, that setting didn't "stick" and took several attempts before it finally did...and then I realized it just didn't help much anyway, and turned it back off. :rolleyes:

Cross your fingers, I think I fixed the problem.
It was down this morning, not sure for how long.

Is it me, or has PF been rather .... er ..... "tempermental" ever since the brain transplant? It is behaving like a spoiled child, often refusing to get up in the morning, and some time even in the afternoon/evening!

Does it need a good spanking?

Arrghh, PF was down yet again yesterday 9 P.M Pacific Time. And as a result, I lost the post I was composing last night. :frown:
And is it me, or PF is slowing down? Sometimes, it just takes ages to load a page.

I'm hoping that last night's really brief outage was the one we were waiting for (though I went to bed early, so maybe Greg waited until very late to take it down for the fix). I really hope that fixed it for good.

:redface: I only checked every 15 seconds, so Greg only has a couple of hundred e-mail notifications from me. :blushing:

Status Reports ?

To help keep up with current system status I set up a “Group” on Yahoo
Keeping it as simple as possible
ANYONE can see a System Status Message by viewing it on line at:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PhysicsForums/

ANYONE can send in a Message by send a TEXT ONLY E-mail to:

PhysicsForums@yahoogroups.com

Yahoo security blocks half the E-mail address of incoming Senders from public view.

Group MEMBERSHIP IS NOT REQUIRED.
For sending in or for viewing on line, anyone can without membership.

If anyone sees any benefit of using some of the other free group features Yahoo provides by having some Mentors etc on PF become members and moderators on this yahoo group it can easily be done.
Including reassigning my ownership of the Yahoo Group, to someone like Greg.

But, for a simple status update this may be all that is needed.
Plus once we have this little umbrella, I’m hoping it will stop raining anyway.
If it's of no benifit it will 'expire' on its own.

Greg – PM me if you want to “OWN” this thing – Yahoo only allows one owner.
But owner can assign several Moderators to help administer.

It is a good idea, but I sincerely hope that we don't have to rely on another public forum just to keep up with PF.

:(

And I don't think it will change that PF might go down from time to time.

But it can at least give addicts something to do when it does.

Thankfully, by the time I got home last night and realized PF was down, I already had emails waiting for me from some of the other mentors, so instead of clicking "refresh" every 10 seconds, I was clicking "check mail" every 10 seconds. It's good to have an alternative activity when PF is down. :biggrin: (Actually, I ended up doing work! :cry:)

Greg, any chance we could move back to the old server...the one that worked?! :frown:

It appears that we had another outtage just now... Not sure for how long, though.

This morning I lost the ability to post and log out. I keep on getting a popup to download newthread.php or login.php. Now it's fine.

That is forbidden at PF! No one is allowed to log out!

Once one is in, one is in. There is no escape.

You have been assimilated!
