    To be honest, I do not know when the plug will be pulled but there are only a small handful of regulars on here (including me) but there are other integrated media platforms that are open to a wider audience so at some point it probably inevitable.

      I wonder if the issues are from their hosting company as opposed to an actual Pearl issue. I barely know how to turn on a computer, much less work on one, so I very well may be stating the obvious here.
      If it was the hosting company, the **** downs would be more random. These are occurring with regularity.

      • Been mentioned I believe, who all does the book of face?
        I'm on, don't post much though. Would like to stay in touch with many long time friends here.

          Speaking from vast IT experience, I presume?

          My take on the situation is that the outdated version of phpBB is crashing its database, which probably happens when it it tries to record bad/broken session data, and the hosting is not set to fix database issues and restart itself automatically.

          Back when they were upgrading the PDF a couple of years ago, I remember them trying to up the version to the latest one, but probably ran into problems, so they downgraded to 4.x. I do believe that if phpBB gets updated to the latest version, these problems will probably disappear.

                    • I still check in regularly. I just don't have anything to say.

                      I haven't bought anything interesting in years. I'm not trying master my Moeller technique. And I don't have a channel.

                      I just play in a bunch of dad rock cover bands. It ain't that interesting.

                              You wanna hear about the Classic Rock dad band?
                              The hair-metal dad band?
                              Or the "wedding-band*" dad band?

                              *we don't play weddings; but the set list is all over the place. Blues, country, classic rock, pop, etc.
