We are back...

Starting Saturday night the server this website is hosted on developed a problem that resulted in inaccessibility of all websites hosted on the server. We started working the issue following the off-road expo at around 10pm on Sunday. In the early hours of Monday the decision was made to reinstall the operating system rather then fixing the problem. After some extensive backups at around 10 AM a new operating system was installed and all sites got uploaded and configured based on priority. Between Monday Noon and Tuesday early afternoon we patched little holes on all sites. At this point the server and this site is 95% back to its original state.

On race-dezert.com we lost some posts in the message board (right here), the picture gallery is still down, the readerz rides section is down (I have 100% of your data) and the classifieds section got reset to zero ads.

I hope this incident didn't inconvenience you too much. We tried our best to get things back up and running.

Aloha Klaus,

I just wanted to say that everyone at RDC does a great job and produce a great site. I also had withdrawls over the weekend, must have checked like every hour. Anyways, keep up the good job.

Thanks,
Chris

I must admit....I felt like an addict without my fix!! Glad to see things are somewhat back to normal.

Klaus....good to finally meet you in person at the expo, and thanks for the DVD's, they'll make the plane trips to Japan much better!

My wife thought I reached the end of the internet! Klaus you need to keep the site up or I am likely to have another kid. I have an appointment with Dr. Hackemoff after BAJA. Later, Scott
