Post Forum downtime (Update)
Exactly a year ago from the last trouble we had another hiccup, at first a firewall issue and then what looked to be a forum crash. We got through the first one with the help of the same guy that bailed us out when I made a nuclear mistake year ago, but the crash afterwards looked bad after the initial systems repairs didn't appear to be working, and when I had started to feel low and questioning how far we'd have to back up to, in a miracle the forum started working again.

The cost is not as much as last year but between a small amount to our network administrator friend and signing up for one month of the control panel (We go the rest of the year without it to save about 40 dollars a month - worth it overall, but has caught up to us a few times) it hit us for about 70 dollars. It would be nice to hit this target with donations, and if we exceed it that'd help too as we pay about 50 dollars a month as is.

If you would like to donate please send money by paypal or e transfer to wokjfundsus@gmail.com

Any help would be appreciated.

Also - a big thanks to Shack who carriers the burden of getting the site back up and running. Not easy and very time consuming.

Any other methods of donations to eliminate/reduce the 5% fees? Not sure if it has to do with foreign transactions/exchange for sending from US.

The current wokj account was created by Jack (Singapore), we should look into changing that at some point, I also have to pay a fee when transferring.

You can try sending it to me directly since I paid the above costs. I will send you PM.

Anything helps, even if it’s 10-20 bucks

Sadly I am strapped at this time of the year what with insurance fees due.

Although I will say, I thought for a moment my theory on Trump orchestrating the FBI raid crashed the website

WOKJ’s US-based PayPal is wokjfundsus@gmail.com

PM me if you prefer Cashapp


I want to publicly thank Shack for restoring access. We will put controls in place to help mitigate future occurrences

I usually just click my Recently Visited tabs. Now the warning shows up sometimes but not others.

Another crash without too many brain cells sacrificed and only the cost of a large pizza and a drink. The big one will have to wait for another day.

This might just be my computer, but for some reason whenever I try to post here using Google Chrome the browser will just freeze. It works perfectly fine on other browsers though. Am on Avast right now. I use safari on my phone and have not had any issues either.

That outage was due to issues with our service provider, Nocix. The problem was on their end. Fortunately it wasn’t long lasting.

Yes they said had a power failure that hit both their primary and backup sources

Post Re: Forum downtime / WOKJ donations
We're having some issues right now with the forum being slower or stalling, my theory was it had something to do with automatic backups taking up too much space, it's also plausible it's not on our end after the server host had power issue a few weeks ago. I will look into it the next few days.
