Server crashed last sunday
As some of you have noticed: the site/forum was unavailable since sunday noon.
The root cause is unknown and fixing the server remotely was not working at all. I was only able to temporary fix the server yesterday evening.

The good news is that I have a replacement server (faster, more memory, etc) but I need some time to set it up properly and replace the server in the datacenter.

Replacing is, for now, scheduled next monday in the afternoon.

Maybe the forum could have a place for GT86 owners too ?

To be honest, I dont think the GT86 has any thing in common with an ae86 from an ownership perspective, although they are more than welcome to join if they want.

About the lost 'momentum', I guess there is something to it. There is no substantial influx of enthusiast owners anymore like there was 5 to 10 years ago, so you mostly get guys here who have owned one for some years already. People finish projects, or put them on hold, grow older and less involved in the whole car lifestyle, etc.
That's one of the side-effects of the AE86 becoming a rare sight on the road around these parts.The current credit crisis isn't doing wonders for peoples willingness to invest in old cars either.

Still I think this is a great place for AE86 owners, with plenty of knowledgeable forum users around, as well as being a home for (continental) european 86 owners.

Yea, maybe a seperate section where people can post their non-ae86 projects.

Good to see the forum fixed. Thumbs up!

Thanks for all the heads up! Thumbs up!

Unfortunately, as you may have noticed, the server failed yesterday before I could fully replace it as planned today. As the server is now completely irretrievably lost I only have data till last Friday. Anything in the meantime has been lost, so also new users since have disappeared.

I tried to install/finish everything as quickly as possible last night but I could have forgotten something along the way. If you see anything weird on the site, please let me know. Smile
