Ignore the information in this individual post. The rest of this thread is still okay. The server setup has changed and everything's on the same server again.
quote: With yesterday's system failure over at Film-Tech, Brad and I have come up with an idea to cross-post server status between Film-Tech and Cinematour.
The sites are on separate servers in the same location. The only reasons that both sites should simultaneously fail would be:
both servers lose power (bad Kitty!)
there is an upstream DNS failure
there is an upstream internet problem
the T1 line gets cut by construction crews again .
So if you can't reach Film-Tech, come here to check and see if something on our end is going on. If you can't reach Cinematour, go to the Film-Tech Forum and navigate to Film-Yak. This topic will probably be made sticky so that it is always near the top of the list.

With the Film-Tech mail system still somewhat crippled, some of the email features of the Cinematour Forums are not operating properly. (The two forums sort of share part of a mail server.)
Member approvals are not operating at this time. I assume that registrations are not operating at this time, either.
If you post to a thread where someone has set their post to notify them when someone else posts to that thread, you will receive an error message after your message posts. But your message does post, which you may verify by reloading the thread.
Uploading an image to your post may also be affected, because I receive an email everytime someone uploads to the server.
These issues should be resolved soon. Thanks for your patience.
** Update ** Email services have been restored.

This evening we will have roughly 20 minutes downtime on all of the servers, one after the other for maintenance, data backup and installing super huge UPS batteries.
Connection to this site or others such as www.film-tech.com may come and go during this time.

Tuesday, October 28th we will have approximately 1/2 hour of solid downtime at some point in the evening. This will affect all servers, but should not affect all of them at the same time. (Cinematour should be up when Film-Tech is down.)
Friday, October 31st we will have an unknown amount of downtime from noon to the evening hours for improvements. The site may be sporadically available for that timeframe. This will also affect all servers, but should not affect all of them at the same time.
