More Down Time
« on: February 10, 2022, 07:59:30 AM »

Sorry for some more down time and weirdness!  We are having some database errors and we may need to do something drastic.  I know everyone want to preserve all the info in the forum.

Tech Guy is working on it.  Not sure if we will have to throw some money at the problem...  I will report back when I know something more concrete.

Thank you Duane. Whatever we need to do, I believe it would be worth it. The people here and the information and history of the R9 Series Pistols, the design that started "The World's Smallest and Lightest 9mm Handgun" craze, should continue on!
As I told my brother Karl at the time:  "There's only one number one, and we have to be that one!"
I said that to him in the fall of 2001 as we were coming into 2002 just post the 9/11 Terrorist Attacks.
And by golly, we made it happen during the January 2002 S.H.O.T. Show!

Duane - Many of us have helped in the past and I'm sure would be willing to do so again.  Its been several years, and if I'm not mistaken its probably time again...

BackupR9 - I hope you get better soon! Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery my friend.

A lot of us have Rohrbaugh "stuff" hanging around in boxes. Why not have us sell these items and donate the proceeds to Duane for expenses?

Backup -- hope you are well!

Give me a little bit of time to figure out what we might need to do.  We could probably update to a newer version of the current forum software.  The expense might be more "labor" than anything.  I unfortunately can't do this myself, but my friend TechGuy has been doing this from the beginning.  We used to make some money here and there which I would send to him for his work and the ongoing costs of maintaining the server.   Let me see what he thinks we should do.

I'm sure we can salvage this somehow. I am certainly not a computer tech guy, but someone must know what to do to update things for us. Whatever it is, I'm also sure that we who use the forum will be able to pitch in with the cash flow to keep things running smoothly for everyone to continue to enjoy themselves here. The members on this forum are some of the best people anywhere! I like to call you all friends.

Keep us posted Duane, please. I'm sure your guy will figure things out and whatever he needs to make it happen, let us know and we'll make it work.
