Got a couple timeouts that led to a IX error page, but once the site loaded the images, the subsequent times seemed to load a little better except on searches like trying to get the last post on a topic with 40 posts in it.

You may have noticed some issues the other night where the forums were offline and some posts were missing.Scot, said the hosting company is doing notification in a different way than previously, but he did find out what happened that night when posts mysteriously disappeared.They had a disk RAID array failure and had to restore our MySQL database to a previous backup state (they backup everyday).As far as any IPS errors, I would attribute that to the weirdness on the web in the last few days - however, I have let Scot know about it just in case it is something else). There have been many sites coming and going for no apparent reason. Quite a few people have noticed the same thing including Bruno, Scot and myself. :">

Scot said the hosting company came across corruption in the backups of some MySQL accounts (likely not ours since we didn't lose posts again last night) on the server. They had to shut down again at about midnight last night. Then they went back another day for those accounts. So, the stuff just after 12AM this morning was accounted for in the latest information to hosting account holders overnight.

Sorry about the loss of posts. It's a pretty dramatic outcome, but I'm very glad to be at MediaLayer. This is by far the best webhost this forums has been hosted on. Glad it was explained properly too.-- Scot

Sorry Liz. There was something wrong and the hosting company quickly fixed it. All better now. It is not unreasonable that they may see some things that need fixing after their array went bad. Should level out though.

This is an odd one, and I was having the same issue on my old install of WIN7 Pro after I upgraded to IE10 a few months ago. The enter/carriage return key does not start a new line/paragraph in the new message window. When I need to start a new line/paragraph I have to type the message into Notepad or Word, then copy/paste it from there into the message window. Any ideas?

The enter/return key works in FF 27 but not IE 10. I have a post in the testing subsection.

Yes, apparently this is an IE 10 and IE 11 problem.

I would suggest using Firefox or Chrome for the forums until Microsoft fixes their problems.

Odd, but I first noticed this problem in FF 29. I switched back to IE and the problem persisted. I switched keyboards, thinking it was my old KB. Still had the problem, although it has not occurred in the typing of this post (in IE) at all. Hmmm...

Well it seems OK (on IE) now for some reason. I tend to se a three major browsers interchangeably; I can never stick with one, it seems.
