Finally!!!
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: Finally!!!

Well, we're back online everyone!!!

Now, to explain...

Without warning or any kind of advanced knowledge, the server that hosts our site (Which by the way is/was rated #1 on the web), crashed and took our site offline. The sad part is, the "techs" kept telling me that "they're working on it." and passing me on "up the ladder" to different "techs". I called them every day as well as sent them emails complaining about the amount of time we've been offline. I'm sure they really got tired of my complaining.

Now, since I run an autobackup script to backup our data on a daily basis, I apparently made a mistake and kept the backups on on what I thought was a different server and location. To my surprise, the location was on the same server that crashed which by the way made it impossible to move CC to another host without loosing a lot of data (posts). It was my decision to wait until our current host restored our site and files. It finally went online today after 19 days, something that in my opinion is unacceptable.

With that being said, I have secured a new web host that is not owned by the current host and will be updating and moving CC at some point in the near future. Too bad too as this host was really good prior to being absorbed into a huge conglomerate.

Thanks to everyone who patiently waited for us to come back online and welcome back!!!

Glad to hear they were able to recover the data and it was not a fatal server crash with no chance of recovery unlike the one that took out Netwings.org in 2009. Sounds like it came close though. Shocked

As I seem to recall from a Sim-Outhouse thread at the time the server for Netwings was located in the Midwest and one of the floods at the time took out the whole building and Neil had not been keeping backups of the site, anywhere. Until 2018, which was long after he had passed away in 2013, the site was still live but there was just some block text with Netwings.org at the link and he never did attempt to rebuild the site due to his own state lack of interest and health issues. Since mid 2018 you have been getting a site suspended notice if you follow the link.

Just a little history on one of those sites that was vibrant for some time and then just up and disappeared due to server crashes or some other unforeseen incident. Again I am quite pleased that was not the final outcome here.

Thanks for staying on their behinds until it was fixed Shadow_Bshwackr.
