Our service provider lost a set of HDD that serviced a bunch of sites. We were one of them.
Josiah and the committee have stayed on top of the failure.
This is not an unusual occurrence in Cyberspace. Our provider did the best they could to keep us informed. Other providers would not even respond.
Josiah keeps a backup of the site in the event the data is lost.
The provider probably used their last backup to reload the new equipment. I have not checked just how much is not there.
The system within TGF is working great. Your understanding in this unfortunate outage would be appreciated.
If Josiah ever feels we are not getting what we paid for we can perhaps seek another provider. At this time that is not the case.

If you can, as a member, let one or two other members know what happened it would be nice. You can cut and paste this is it is easy for you.

Now post post post,
Ed

Thanks for the efforts to get it going again. I thought it was my 'puter at first.
