Hello Dave, I could have sent you a pm for this. But didn't want you to think it was an emergency.

With the site down this morning,(I assume)..I was wondering if you could set up an automated notice to all our email addresses letting us know it is a web site problem. Occasionally my links on my desktop don't work. And I have to do a search and find another link. No real big deal. But ...i'm lazy
.....would be nice to know when it is down for repairs etc.


If not thats ok....Thanks ANNB!

...oh oh....I might be in trouble for bothering your Sunday slumber!
...I'm outta here!.........

Hi nut. While that is indeed a great idea, unfortunately during those rare times when the site/server is offline, I am unable to send any mail to members as that is all contained within the server


Hopefully there won't be many instances of the server being offline (fingers crossed).

"Unable to send notices because that is all contained within the server".

No AN, it's not a stupid question at all. It really just depended on the type of system Dave had in place. In order to get something like you wanted, he would need to implement an outside monitoring application that generates emails when it can't reach the website. The problem with these are that they tend to generate a lot of false-positives, which could make it seem like the website goes offline every day.

I see......and so you think that your reply will make me feel "less" dumb...eh?


.....well....it does!
...thanks!


I also just thought about how many e-mail notices that would have to go out as well.
And a good majority of members are not necessarily returning members.

Yeah, logistically it would be a nightmare


There are now over 800 members, but it seems the same 12-15 of us post on everything
