#1 Forum Downtime

Post by Heuer » Wed Oct 17, 2018 3:21 pm

Sorry about the interruption to service but the site crashed and I could not gain access to the phpBB3 files to make some changes. Long story but there was no one with the skills to fix the problem except me and I could not get the necessary credentials to access the file structure. Many thanks to Jack at E Type UK who managed to find the passwords which then gave me access. My head hurts!

I noticed that I hit "submit" too quickly and had mistakenly typed in "65 FHC" instead of "66" (and did not need to type in any description as it is already included in my signature). That being said for those of you who care, if any, the car has a birthday of September 17th, 1965 but I refer to it as a '66.

YEA!!!!

You're back! Thank you David, I've been missing my daily dose of stuff E-type :smile:

I presume you now have somewhere safe of your own for keeping those pesky passwords.

Great news David, can we insure against losing you ?
Ready for the avalanche of pent-up posts from withdrawal-symptomed forum-crawlers ?

I know that this took a lot of work and probably an overdosing of antacid medications, but your efforts are MUCH appreciated, David. I've really missed my daily dose of the forum. :bouncyyellow: :salute:
