Matsumoku .org

Post by corsair on Thu Sep 03, 2015 5:10 am

Hiya gang... as one or two of you may have noticed, the above forum has gone belly-up for a week or two now, and attempts by another forum member and myself to contact the site admin have fallen on deaf ears, so I'm afraid it might be the case that it has disappeared for good, which is a tragedy as the information available for all to access on that site was a major bonus.

Perhaps the fact that the traffic there had dropped to the point where it was no longer viable to keep it open has something to do with the admin not repairing it; I don't know, but it saddens me to see a top-notch site like that go down.

I know, too, the admin was quite unwell some time back so there may well be health issues to boot.

In any case, if it has indeed gone the way of the dodo, then I salute Neal, and Jon, Jorg and je for their efforts and thank them for the information and enjoyment I've had from the site since 2004!

The actual site is still accessible, but the forums, unfortunately, are gone.

Very sad news indeed John if true. The server is still active so there may be hope yet.
The 404 error simply means that the Forum section is not accessible via the internet. The fact that it isn't suggests to me that someone has been doing some repair work.

Not likely that the database has been lost since the original error was an access configuration problem not a software failure.

I'm hoping that we'll see it reappear sometime soon.  Neutral

Update
I just checked the Mats site before retiring for the night and as of midnight local time we're back to displaying the original General Error (SQL) message. That tells me that someone is at least "tinkering" with it. Something positive at least.

Beat me to it John.  I was trying like the dickens to log in over there just to see how things were faring. When I was unsuccessful I pondered posting a "what happened" thread here, as a few of us posted with fair frequency there.

I wonder if your comment on the traffic levels affects the forums as well.  Always it seemed to me that there particularly quality far outstripped quantity as is pertained to posts.

I've been getting that message on the desktop from the start; I get the 404 placard on the mobile devices....
