For at least 3 days, I have not been able to establish a connection to the great Napoleon Series website. Does anyone here know what has happened? It will be a tremendous loss if it is gone for good.

You are right on every count. Will not connect and massive loss if permanent……….. but let us watch and pray, lest we enter into temptation.

As my dad always said "Arra sure, God is good and He smiles on the righteous"…….so all will be well

I hope they are redoing the site and bringing it into the 21st century.
It is so outdated.
Its menu system is archaic

I am still getting e-mails from their Discussion Forum, the last I received was on the 7th, so access is still open to some people. I have also tried to access the site but no deal. I hope it is a temporary problem.

Digby Green Inactive Member11 Feb 2018 9:22 p.m. PST

Do the maths.
The OP said for 3 days.
You got your last email on the 7th.
So you have not got an email since then.
That is 4 days.

This is a US-led site. It is maTH not mathS

Is it not intended as an abbreviated "Mathematics"?

Never quite sure how the "s" got dropped by the lost colonies

More an international site so all variantsare "followed" and present…..

@Dave J

You are right – there is room in the world for everyone.

PS I was a tad annoyed because I thought the exortation to "Do the maths" was a bit strong.

Well, It's the 13th and I still can't get through.

The main server is down and will be for a few more days--it's a major fail.

attilathepun47 Inactive Member13 Feb 2018 10:27 a.m. PST

Thank you, MaggieC70.

dibble Supporting Member of TMP13 Feb 2018 11:33 a.m. PST

Yeah! cheers Maggs'

Paul :)

MaggieC7013 Feb 2018 3:26 p.m. PST

Glad to see you back, Paul! I'll behave myself if you will. Or not…

Digby Green Inactive Member13 Feb 2018 3:50 p.m. PST

I hope you are right, but most web hosting services have backup servers? (ie more than one computer)
Do you have some inside information or are you just guessing?
And most of the ones I have seem guarantee 99% uptime.

I have them saved for my Borodino OOB, went to check and no response reminded me of this thread.Hope they get back soon.

dibble Supporting Member of TMP13 Feb 2018 5:47 p.m. PST

Well! Maggs', I'll try to keep my nose clean but going by how others are being punished and the reasons for it, makes me think that it wont be long before I have to take up residence in my kennel for a few days.

Paul :)

MaggieC7013 Feb 2018 6:09 p.m. PST

That's all right… I'll come visit and bring Beau, my Great Pyrenees.

The information on the server issue came directly from Bob Burnham, who is not known for cutting-edge technology, to include backup and such. Who was it that noted the format was clumsy and could do with an overhaul? I agree…

Thank Heavens for that – I thought it was because I had just joined.

The Napoleon Series is back up…

It's down again…

Suffering from "Grand Old Duke of York Syndrome" perhaps?

attilathepun47 Inactive Member18 Feb 2018 9:38 p.m. PST

But back online as of 9:38 P.M., Pacific Standard Time. Not much new posted since the extended blackout, however.

O the grand old Duke of York
He had ten thousand men
He marched them all to the top of the hill
And he had them all again.
