The site has been down because my primary web server has died -- again.

Thing are looking very bleak, but I have managed to hobble together a working site on another server.

Some things may be missing, but there's not much I can do about that.

It may be some time before I can get things back to normal.  I'll do the best I can.

      I was wondering what happened for two hours...lol

      Considering the massive task of maintaining a complex site as this, you did a great job Todd. It would be interesting to give us rundown of how a server goes down like this. Just for people like me who ar technically challenged...lol I would find it very interseting.

      Of course after this is fixed.

      As an educated guess i would say the answer lies somewhere in the vicinity of an overload? Yes? No?

      I remember when I was working at a market research company 11 yeras ago in N.Y.C, there was a room full of servers , and it was very cold in there. The computer pro was always in there trying to make sure the heat wasn't going to make them go down, because there were over 200 phone lines making it a burden for them.

            It really must be in the air, I've had alot of trouble also with my servers, and at different locations.  I've had trouble accessing my wireless, and trouble sending/receiving email at other locations.

                Very much appreciated Todd - thanks.

                Our 2nd class in Pick 3 Lore was Space-Timing The Next Draw and we found the Lottery LoreKeeper, Tatiana, staring through her telescope, while we covertly giggled about what does Planet X have to do with what my next draw is? The sleuthy sage quietly intoned, "It is known that when the light(information) from such a distant object reaches our eyes, we are seeing the object as it was in the past & not as it appears Now in the present. Isn't this true for all things, especially numbers, that were drawn years, months, weeks or even just a day in the past? To accurately find the next draw, use the Law of Now(Tatiana's Pillar)". We never giggled again.

                      Thanks everyone for your understanding.

                      I have been able to temporarily reconstruct almost everything.  The biggest missing piece is the Member Home Pages for premium members.  That includes all the images that you've uploaded to Lottery Post, and any other content you stuck on the server.  I won't be able to get that stuff up until the web server is fixed.

                      In the meantime, I've got the main site, blogs site, mobile site, Lottery Results Gadget, lottery results engine, and USA Mega running, so I'm going to take a breather and see what I can do tomorrow.

                        FYI, to those who had an avatar that they uploaded to their member space on the Lottery Post web server, I had to disable your avatar, because none of the images are available.  When the web server is fixed, you should be able to reset your avatar the way it was.

                          Thanks Todd,  I was having router problems with  my laptop-I used this board to test my connection availability.  When it didnt work  I got nervous.  I was ready to bust open  my laptop when i saw on my desktop that it worked  later on.  Thanks for the heads up.

                            Mercury went retrograde yesterday which always plays havoc with anything having do do with communications.

                            Good luck to everyone!
