I had this site go down for a couple of days around christmas (some sort of line-numbered database error list came up). I guessed it was another one of those unannounced updates gone wrong (just like the O2 mobile network last month) but it would be so great if the planned updates were announced ahead of time so that we were given the heads up, rather than being left to think that the Great Crash had happened all over again
Well, the break in transmission wasn't planned, I think the XenForo upgrade should have gone through smoothly, without most of us even noticing,
but it hit some unforeseen incompatibility with our database. We're working on a wholly separate route where members can get news and keep in touch if/when CF vanishes from their screens - watch this space!
