    Sean, I just saw Lars von Trier's Melancholia, and it's got me worrying, what's going to happen to APUG, if another planet collides with Earth? Do we have a mirror on Mars?

    If anyone should be backed up on microfiche, it should be us.

    Hmm... I wonder if I could backup to a satellite?

    The Chinese are now in the space game so they might be able to put a data vault in space

    I wouldn't be surprised if they are looking for new hosting by now. I do hope they will be back up soon..

    From the Service Level Agreement (SLA) language at Layered Tech:

    "Layered Tech is not responsible for the restoration of data to any server. If Hardware Failure and subsequent data loss occurs, Customer is responsible for data restoration. Layered Tech shall not be liable for loss of data under any circumstances. If a Hardware Failure causes a corrupted operating system, data files, or a damaged service configuration, Layered Tech will attempt to restore the system to its original state when reasonably possible."

    If that is true, then RFF has to have their own data backup/restore plan and process. Let's hope they do.

    This - from someone with 2339 posts! Bit snarky, aren't we? There are ways to switch off and hide a lot of stuff that you don't want to see (including posts by certain people) and obviously the wide range of subjects must be of interest to some people. Actually I'm thinking of starting one devoted to photographic tie pins - there must be a lot of people out there who would like to debate, trade, boast about their collections. But RFF is down and I can't do that right now.

    Greg Hill tells me it's been down since last Wednesday. Depend upon it, there will be a flood of anguished and angry posts once it resumes, most of which will have little to do with photography.

    Agreed 1. They will write down their frustration. And a week later we will laugh about all the trouble.

    I, for one, enjoy lots of forums and having one down puts a big hole in my continuing education efforts .
    Agreed 2. Apart from the personal minded discussions, it is still my best fundus of deep technical knowledge for the most exotic RF questions.

    I think one on all the different aftermarket lens caps is a more pressing need.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    On a positive note (for me at least) having RFF down has lead me to rediscover APUG, it's not half bad y'know!
