GREETINGS

:D

Due to a Shout Out re: his Forum at HowieGordon.com during the East Coat Finale' show, it got a massive surge of membership requests, visits, and hits, to the point of crashing the Server.

This is just a Temporary situation, but it may replay itself through the night as the different Time Zones view the show.

Given that Hawaii does not see the show till 1 A.M. EST there may be issues until then. There is an incorrect error message or 3 there at any one time. If you are able to get on there, it may not be for long till the next show is viewed.

Please check back later as there will be plenty of events and things to do when Howie returns. Thank you for your patience, support, and understanding.

The HowieGordon.com Team

PS Great job Morty's on all the updates and many topics!!

AS TO THE ERROR MESSAGE THERE

RE: payment issues

That is the same junk message we get when the

Bandwidth has been exceeded, and nothing to

do with the "Account Funding".

The Administrator is working on it now.

;)

Forgot to address that glitch, thanks for catching it

:D

At the earliest I'd say..

Given that Hawaii does not see the show till 1 A.M. EST

there may be issues until then. ... thus after 2 A.M. EST

I would try back as you can but as each Time Zone Views it

they'll hear Howie's shout out and there will be more hits.

The error message too will bring a lot of comments I'm sure..

when it's just a bandwidth issue. Went from 47 instant memberships

to 100 or more and well with that and hits..

as some have said.. The Beefcake that he is

leave it to Howie to crash his own site!!

:)

It's being worked on now by Administrators etc.

Due to the hour of night along that

many have not seen the show yet, (whether not played

in their time zone yet or not watched via recording)

we don't expect it to be up till Wednesday A.M.

:(

PLEASE continue to check back to see the status though!

:)

It'll be fixed soon so that Boogie and Erika CAN come talk

to Howie at Howie Gordon Dot Com.

;)

UPDATE:

AS OF 10:25PM PST (1:25AM EST)

Howie Gordon Dot Com is back

UP and Running ... for now.

;)

With numerous hits and memberships

pending please be patient if it should

take a HIT again.. thanks!!

:D

:lol::lol::lol:

PS...........

Word from the Site Administrator

RE: the reason for the crash...

Apparently, the server shut the site down

because there were so many people

logging onto HowieGordon.com that it

slowed the INTERNET down!

Because Howie's site is on a shared server

they had to shut it down to let the hundreds

of other sites stay up ...

Not sure how many OTHER sites can say that!!

As stated in a previous now Closed thread HERE from last night..

Howie's Site had issues after a shout out he did on the show.

Due to an enormous rush of visitors, the server did some

juggling that closed it down for a while.

Now... by the light of day, with the continued storm of people

visiting, applying, being added etc...

The Forum IS temporarily down again.

It's frustrating but this again will be fixed soon as it was

last night. This may be a reaccuring event for a few days.

So sorry for the inconvienience and we appreciate the support!!!

Will let you know when it's back up!! Thanks!!

:D

Okay am glad that someone is in the same boat..

:huh:

Never saw L D B before evvvvvvvvver..

And I've seen it 4 times since this post today.

Could someone let us know what that means?

Thanks

:)

PS I looked it up on the net and just came back with this

Lock file - Microsoft Access (filename extension) .ldb

the db stands for data base...

am thinking that's not it

Why would anyone want to Lock a thread that is informative to those Reality fans out there that are wondering what happened to Howie's site? Or delete a thread that has nothing profanity or spam related in it?

Also as to banning, there isn't anything I have done to deserve that type of response, given my efforts to help out others who love their shows and players? I just don't understand that type of response when this kind of information does no harm to anyone and is pure and simply helpful.

Thank you King, for defining those letters, for future reference.

I personally don't understand why this has to be a LDB. We're just informing people across the internet why Howie's site is down. Many people have come to me asking why they cannot access the site. Going to many forums is a good way to get the word out. If Morty/a moderator or administrator here doesn't like us posting this here, we will gladly stop. But as for now, I do not see this as spamming or offensive. So why LDB? If Morty or a moderator/administrator would PM me or Moosie as to why this is unacceptable, that'd be great. That way, we won't do it again or we could modify our posts.

Thank you,

April

There was a thread about this started last night, it WAS locked by a mod here... Then another thread stating the same thing by the same person was started today...

Maybe you should be concentrating on keeping Howie's site up and running rather than wasting time whining over a "figure of speech"...

Just so that there is no misunderstanding, I appreciate the pain of duplicate threads but the first one was closed as the site WAS back up and running. However it crashing again was a bit of a surprise this morning and it's been down all day, being worked on as I'm typing. Thus wanted to alert the fans and members that we WERE aware of it and the error message on that front page was again a junk error message and it's simply a bandwidth problem. The site was SO busy it had to be shut down so that other sites could stay up and running for now. Pretty darn popular!!

Had the other thread not been locked I would've continued it there, but with reason the moderator saw it as a closed or resolved issue (as it was at the time) and closed it. Thus a new post was needed. We've talked to Morty about this via PM and there was not a problem with this thread so I hope you understand the reluctance to post this again but for the fans and members there wasn't a choice.

As to the "whining" I've never heard it before and it was a bit severe given there was nothing contraversial about this thread's purpose. I appreciate you letting us all know (more than one) as to what the meaning was. Thanks!
