AikiWeb.com is Back Online

Hi everyone,

So, as you can see, the AikiWeb.com server is back online.

It looks like the motherboard failed on Saturday (with the BIOS POST hanging during the drives detection phase). Unfortunately, I don't have any good computer stores nearby so I had to place a next-day air order online. The new motherboard, CPU, and memory (I had to order all three since the old motherboard and suitable replacements were no longer available) arrived today and I was able to swap things out pretty quickly. And here we are!

Sorry for the downtime, folks. I'm working on a solution that I'm hoping will keep these kinds of things from happening -- stay tuned...

I had a minor panic attack when I tried to get on this weekend! Glad we are good to go again! Thanks!

I have to say that the Aikiweb Facebook posts really helped. It was good to know what was happening. Thank you ,Jun, for everything that you do.

I can't find the Aikiweb facebook group! What is the official name? I search for Aikiweb and it doesn't come up

Thanks, I think, for fixing the site. I was getting more work done while it was down...

Re: AikiWeb.com is Back Online

Jun, what sort of platform is aikiweb built on?

i see the forum is php, but doesn't seem fully integrated into the the whole site.

is the rest of the site built on any kind of CMS?

anyway, glad you got things up and running again and i gave the facebook page an add.
