    Does anyone know for how long PBase has been down and if anything is being done about it?

    It was slow yesterday afternoon, but by evening was ok. Was ok this am, about 7am EDT but I haven't been there since.

    It's completely down. I'm hoping someone will come along and say that there was a warning about possible downtime today?
     
  4. Pbase worked last night for me and I am checkign it now and it is pretty slow right now...

    Not coming up for me at all. When I ping it, it gives me "request timed out".

    Hi Elena

    Yup, I'm having the same problem. It was working this morning at 7 a.m. but when I checked back at 9 a.m. it was down. Once I got to work, same thing. But I didn't see any warnings yesterday, so it's probably the same old thing with them.

    Glad to see you made the jump over to this space.

    I can't get there at all either.
     
  8. I'm sure Slug knows, but he isn't talking :wink:.

    I've been a Pbase supporter for about 5 years. It's a hobbyist's site... run by a hobbyist for hobbyists. It's excellent when it works, but it's always been quirky. In a way, I think that's part of its charm :Crunk: .
     
  9. LOL :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

    Yeah .... as long as that charm doesn't translate into lost photos. I have all of the originals backed up, but the thought of redoing everything in PS if, god forbid, everything's lost, will make me go bananas :biggrin:

    Pbase

    Pbase is up at the moment.
     
  14. you sure?
     
  15. Back up, all is well :biggrin: :biggrin:
     
  16. I must say that while I like many of the features and convenience of pbase, smugmug or even my homepage are looking more attractive by the day.

    I can't recommend highly enough backing up your work, originals and mods. Get an external harddrive and only plug it in when you need to do backups. Some things you just don't want to leave solely in the hands of other people.
    BLV - BTW, did you take the Laetitia Casta photo in your avatar? She's always been one of my favorite models.

    I have everything that's needed for backing up (or anything computer related, and not really :biggrin:), it's a matter of not being lazy :).

    Good one! :biggrin:

    PBase has been back up for an hour or two, but I still don't see a mentioning anywhere in the forums of what took them offline for at least 6 hours.

    It has been up for several hours, but it sure seems "pokey" to me...but at least it is up and running.
