    The site was down for maintenance.

    It's a daily occurrence.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I was really going through withdrawals this morning, glad I'm not the only one. I woke up at 6 for coffee and my first read of the forum and I was so dissapointed that it wasn't up and running.

    Same here. I thought it was my 'puter or my ISP, it couldn't be that DC was down. I had flashbacks to when packing.org went down for the count.

    As we continue to grow the backups will continue to get longer and longer. I guess it's the price we have to pay. I'll check the time and see if we should push it back an hour since DST started....

    Ok you guys need a plan

    I'm absolutely a newbie here and don't even know if I should be saying this. I'm not new to owning but I'll be new to carrying once my CWP ges here. That said, you guys provide a HUGE resource for me. I'm trying to spend the wait time getting boned up on different scenarios to watch out for, actions for different contingencies, holsters and styles of carry, how to carry in states i travel to/through, etc.......you guys get the idea.

    If this maintenance is gonna be a daily thing, can I get either someone from staff or a really knowledgeable member to either come visit me during maintenance or just be standing by with an open phone connection?

    Any chance you could bump it back earlier in the morning Bumper?

    I wake up at 5:30 am Central everyday and when I log into the forum as soon as I wake up. Most days, the site doesn't come back from maintenance until around 6. Is this the time the forum has the least visitors. I would think it would be more convenient for most members earlier in the morning say 2 or 3 am.

    Just a thought, as far as I know you start the maintenance at 3 am and it takes to almost 6 am. I just know I sure enjoy the forum and go through withdrawals when its not available. Keep up the good work!

    Like clockwork...6 A.M. (EST) every morning for about 20-25 minutes...usually NOT during the day.

    Yeah, the backups run for about 25-30 minutes. The problem I am having trying to figure out the time is that I generally run forum maintenance, late at night before the backups run. My maintenance slows things down a bit but the backups generally grind things to a halt. If I push it back too far for the east coast people, the west coast people start having issues when it's really not late at all. A balancing act for sure, but necessary to prevent losing the forum because of a hack or corruption of some kind. We have so much traffic now that losing even a days worth of posting would mess things up pretty good...
