I'm surprised, I always thought Lottery Post would be on it's own dedicated server or you owned its server.   

The web host Lotto-Logix is on blew out one of its servers and they don't work over the weekend.  I haven't seen my site since Thursday.

I'm not sure that you read my note correctly.  LP is on several servers, not just one "dedicated server".

      That's definitely the way to go.  I strongly suggest that everyone get their predictions for Monday into the system by tonight.  (Sunday night.)

      The prediction winners will be calculated sometime after the system goes back online Monday night.

              This is what threw me . . .

              "This maintenance is unavoidable, and is part of a large data center reorganization involving several hundred companies.
              *
              For comparison, most other companies involved in this data center maintenance are experiencing downtimes of between 40 and 48 hours."

              . . . made me think LP was hosted along with hundreds of other sites on whatever equipment was undergoing maintenance.  Seeing my problems reflected in your problems, apparently not the case.  

              Sorry about that.  BobP

                There are hundreds of companies in any given data center.  A decent data center is huge -- not talking about hobbyists on a $19.95 shared server package!

                  Thanks for all the well-wishes.  It's going to be a really big deal, and I probably won't sleep for about 48 hours, so they are much-appreciated!

                      Thanks Todd for the alert and for all your hard work.   "I'll be up for nearly 48 hours" (paraphrase) .... Ye GADS Todd that is horrific ... hope you'll have a good chunk of time after the fixing is done for a good long rest!
