    Sorry for FerrariChat.com being unavailable from apx. 10am to 6pm CST today. Good news is we're back up, the software is upgraded, and a few other problems were fixed in the process.

    There will be a few issues and bugs remaining, but 99% of the board is fine and I'm working on the others ASAP.

    Please report problems and concerns in this thread. A common one will be bad linked images with the little red x. This is because I didn't like the new images on the upgrade, so kept the old images. However, where they implemented new images I will have to go load them one by one.

    Please don't report something if it's already on my Fix List.

    Current Need to Fix List...

    1) Red X on footer for "FerrariChat.com Statistics"
    2) Get custom styles working properly again.

    Thanks,
    rob

    1) Red X on footer for "FerrariChat.com Statistics" now fixed
    2) Get custom styles working properly again.

    Can someone check their custom styles to make sure everything looks OK. I think it's all fixed now. You can choose custom styles at the dropdown on the footer.

    Thank you,
    rob

    This was the perfect day for it to happen, I took the day easy at home to rest for a triathlon tomorrow morning.

    If any Subscribed users are REALLY upset about the site being unaccessible, please let me know offline. Thank you.

    Everyone, Carbon is just yanking my chain, he knows how much this pisses me off. People have got in free by being a consultant or moderator, but not a sole has got in free subscription. I made all my best friends and even family pay.

    Rob - I went through the site - everything looks good... All your fixes are working as well... Looks like everything went fine... A couple of days will tell on the outage problems..

    PS. I did notice that I thought I had "consultant" and now I am back to Rossa Suscribed... But I did pay as well - so not sure if this was restored back or was always this way? Either way - everything looks great!

    Carbon/NNO - you should pay as well as being a consultant - with the new highprofile job and all :)

    Dunno if this is just with my browsers, but the "[ color=grey ]" tag is showing up as green in IE, and as grey in Mozilla. And since 95% of people use IE, this may be an issue

    This is grey text, how does it look to you?

    It's coming up green.

    MSN Explorer is based of IE IIRC.

    LOL, you got the same idea I did at the same minute.

    To use bb code for color gray, spell it gray, not grey, grey thinks it's green.

    Is any other grays appearing green besides the bb code?

    Everyone, Rob is mad 'cause he lost a bet... i won't say what the bet was, but we agreed that if he lost, i got to tell everyone my subscription was free... A contingency i didn't prepare for was that he didn't have to admit to it, so now we go back and forth and he fills your heads with silly little lies... TRUST ME, i didn't pay for a subscription... Rob, just be a man about it and admit it...

    Did the 60 minutes expire? You can only edit posts within 60 minutes.

    I think my cookies are acting up:

    A message I reply on myself now shows up as "unread" in my console. In the past it showed up, but marked as "read".

    Well, we just had the database go down and not auto restart, that has been 90% of the problems this month. It wasn't down very long because I have a page going to my phone and I can reboot remotely. Not sure quite yet what it can be, some of the suspects...

    1) Hardware related with bad RAM.
    2) Corrupt data.
    3) Database overload. Right before the crash just now there was a big peak in usage...
