Is XOC dead, or just temporarily down?
Maybe they are jealous of our sites' new format and they are updating theirs.

Just got done talking to Alpine and it seems their hard drive crashed. It also seems the site hasn't been backed up for awhile. I hope they are able to recover, because it would be a shame to lose all that valuable information.

Wow, in todays day and age, hard drive crashes should not take down a server or site. Is it privately hosted in someones basement or at a real hosting company? If it's in some hosting company's data center, I would be looking for a new host.

There is no reason for a server to crash these days. Maintenance or loosing a main backbone are the only reasons for a site to be down. Between SAN's (or at least RAID) drives and clustered virtual servers with fail-over...server hardware should never be an excuse.

I am just shocked that such a large forum that has been around such a long time would have these types of problems.

Didn't something similar happen to them a year and half ago or so? I just remember a really long down time not long after I joined.

Yeah, once I found this site I pretty much stopped going over there. I check it out maybe once or twice a week to see if anything is new but for the most part I hang around here and one other site.

XOC has to be moved to a different forum software as well... Search blows ass on that site :( This is a good opportunity to start fresh :)
