Hi everyone Sorry about the lack of K9 over the last week but hopefully everything is back now pretty much as it was. I think I should explain what the problems have been... K9 has been hosted with a company by the name of Klooki for the past couple of years & on the whole they have provided good service. I had what is called a reseller account with them and hosted a few different web sites for a few of my customers in addition to K9 Community. Just over a week ago I asked them to add another site to my account - a day later an email came back 'Just to let you know before the official press release - we are pulling out of hosting. We are offering a few of our valued customers an option to move to a Windows server but will be offering no new accounts'. I emailed them back saying that I probably wouldn't want to move to a Windows server but could they let me know further details about costs etc. I heard nothing back - at which point alarm bells started to ring. Then without any further communication from them at all they just turned all their servers off :blink: I suppose I was better off than many who heard nothing from them at all and lost all their data - at least I had one fairly recent backup. Anyway, I've now rented a whole virtual server - so I have a lot more control over everything (although not the mains switch :angry: ). I haven't re-loaded all the uploaded pictures for the last 3 years because it was getting a little out of hand but I have re-loaded everything from the last couple of months. If you have an Avatar missing or a picture you particularly wanted let me know the details & I'll load it again from backups here. Please let me know if you see anything that doesn't work properly :teehee: . The down side of me having full control over everthing is there is a lot more opportunity for me to get things wrong (and have no one to help me sort it out) - that's why the Chat server isn't working at the moment... :wacko: . I'll continue to try & sort the problem out but I thought it would be better to get K9 back than worry about that for the moment.
