Sunset Ride 

BOB has retired moved! Our current platform (the one you are reading right now) is over 18 years old. Rather than continue here, the community has moved to a new software platform! We are excited about the move and hope that you'll come with us.

The new community URL is https://bobj-board.org/.

User accounts have not been converted. In order to participate on the new platform you will need to create a new account. Existing posts have been retroactively assigned to your user name, but are associated with an anonymous account. No personal information (email address and so on) has been transferred to the new platform.

If you have any questions, the "About BOB" forum will remain open for the remainder of 2020, at which point it will be replaced by a static page directing folks to the new community.

Thank you for your support and participation for the past 18 years.

Hi, you may have experienced a (hopefully) brief outage on BOB this afternoon. Despite monitoring, one of the drives where our DB was stored filled up, which caused our database engine to stall.

We've moved the affected files to another drive on our server with a lot more free space and hopefully that will address the issue. There is a possibility of some data loss or corruption so please note anything you find here.

Thanks

Just curious is there an alternate way to check the status of the site and/or contact the admin in case this happens again? For example a twitter feed?

Not really...the board itself was fine (amazing what nearly 20 year-old software can still do) it was the server itself that was a problem. We have multiple folks with administrative rights / responsibilities to BOB, but only one person that maintains the server.

I haven't gotten a daily digest in a few days. Is that related?

Maybe, I will check into it. I had to really tighten down the controls on sending mail on the server due to another issue. It's possible the digest script has been prevented from sending mail.

Can you check to see if your BOB emails are coming in marked as SPAM or just not being delivered at all...

It wasn't caught as spam, but I did receive the digest today.

Dave, have you learned anything about the missing digests? I heard from another guy who hasn't received any digest emails since the 16th.

Joe, have you been getting your emails?

Yes, I've gotten them every day since the 24th.

Message reply emails are very sporadic (I did get this one), but it's been like that for a couple of years at least.
