Perhaps "Tom" could answer the question.

I suppose he could answer it if he chooses to. Was down, came back briefly and went down again for at least two or three more days.

Hmmmm....

Last Visit - October 27, 2013

Wonder if he even knew (or cared) that it was down.

Oh well.

He only knew because I finally told him after it was down for four days with the database error. Now it keeps going down and won't even ping. He says they did "unscheduled upgrade" and now it keeps going down. I think eventually it will go down and never come back.

Supposedly a corrupted registry on the server was the problem and it has been rebuilt. Hopefully it stays up.

Oh Tom, you slay me. Don't even know/care when your own site goes down.

Today is the first day in a week at least that I am able to get this site. I was having withdrawal symptoms.

Hard to believe Tom had to be told by someone the site was down. I thought site owners have alerts in place that notify you when a site crashes or goes off line. I suppose that is true only if you choose to.....

Has anyone actually seen Tom? Do we know Tom is real?

JSanders and I have met him. He's real. He's a nice guy but obviously has many other things he cares more about than this forum. He does still pay to have it hosted. Google checks must be enough to keep it running.

If this site is hosted by a commercial company then there is no reason for it to be down unless modifications are being made causing this. But John Clark indicates it is hosted.
So maybe Tom does the work on his own.

He says it is with a hosting company. This kind of thing has always been a problem. BlackBerryFAQ is gone because he said the hosting company just took it down without notifying him.

It could have happened, I have had some weird experiences with various hosting companies over the years.
