Yesterday, I had to announce that the Dubroom Message Baords were not where they are supposed to be, namely out there in Cyberspace and accesible for everyone. Yes, the boards are off-line and there is nothing I can do about it.

The reason is, that all the websites of the Message Board provider are offline. This scares me a little bit, because it could very well be that they ended their services without telling their customers. However, obviously I check 100 times a day to see if something is offline and the main website, www.xsorbit.com, was online for a minute or two so for now I also consider the possibility that the company hjas some major site issues.

It's not just a bad thing for all those people that like to visit and participate in the Message Boards, but also for me as I use the messageboard to create the right lay out for this weblog. A technical thing, but the fact that the board is offline increases the amount of work I have to do every do significanty.

Anyway, please pray with me that the boards will be online soon again. I'll keep you posted, and when there is no more forum I will obviously look into another possibility.

One Love, Give Thanks,

  1. Privately, I am kind of anticipating the idea that the messageboards will be permanently offline. Maybe it's my cynical approach...

    I have had more problems with the boards as they were offline for sometimes days but the provider was reachable. Now I cannot even write to them as they are off-line completely.

    I check www.xsorbit25.com which is also theirs, well,m that site is online but links to www.xsorbit.com which is offline. Yesterday, www.xsorbit.com was online for a minute or so, these are indications that everything will be online somewhere in the future.

    I will have to look into another messagebiard system if everything turns out to be what i fear or anticipate. Since my PHP adventure in 2004, when the Dubroom got hacked by a script kiddie who placed some kind of Islamic Propaganda thing on the site, I know that I shouldn't dive into the programming website business and rely on providers.

    Anyway, I just wanted to write this down. I truly hope the boards will be online soon, as I know that many people like to visit the Dubroom Message Boards, to post or just to read.

    One Love, Give Thanks,
