The forum crashed out everywhere. Take a look at the posting times (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/PF1.jpg) from PF1 and from Chat (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Chat1276400427.jpg).

While its possible, its HIGHLY unlikely that there were no replies, or posts made in what was roughly a 12 hour period. From yesterday to today just after mid day = down time of the whole forum.

Agreed. First thing I checked when it came back up.

Which is why I queried Goodiesguy who said there were no issues. :)

it was fine. i was on it but not posting till at least 2am in the morning today. it was going fine from 9pm to that time yesterday. it did'nt crash down here

Not posting till 2am Hmm ok explain then why and what happened to your posts --- if you look at the pictures in the previous links, you will see in the PF1 forum there are No posts between yesterday 9.54 PM and today 1.05PM.

In the chat, no posts between 1.21am this morning to 12.48pm this afternoon.

The afternoon postings start to run again around 12.48pm today.

No one else could get on - so you the only one in the country it seems that had access .... BS :groan:

In the chat, no posts between 1.21am this morning to 12.48pm this afternoon.There was activity before 7am at least compliments of a spammer and someone who reported that spammer at 6.50am.

There was activity before 7am at least compliments of a spammer and someone who reported that spammer at 6.50am.Maybe so, but its obvious that the whole of PF1 was down for quite a while, no one appears to have been able to get the page(s) to load.

I tried this morning around 8.30am, then again at about 9.45 dead as a dodo -- went off and did some work.

Possibly.

But we never got an answer as to why it died.

That's been established multiple times by you. We get it.

But you weren't! :rolleyes:

(Well, at least I think I managed to get on. The PC World home page was broken yesterday, but IIRC PressF1 wasn't.)

Down the north end of Gordon Rd; who's your ISP? (Telecom here)

Calm down.

You said that you were on around 2am, Jen said that there was activity around 7am.

You were on before it died. That, or maybe your ISP was serving you cached copies of PF1. I know TC can be a PITA for their transparent proxies...

As for the whole late-night interneting debate, I'm usually on around 11pm til 1am, it's the only chance I regularly get to myself.

Yes, I have a messed up schedule.

What a pathetic debate. As geekster said its likely that he was viewin cached pages. If it was down everywhere except at your house then he must live in the pressf1 server room.

And even if it was up for him who cares, and who cares what time people are on here and for how long? I go on when I want to for as long as I want to and I'd rather people didnt care if I post at 2am on a sunday morning
