    Sorry man. Havens BBS is no more. The BBS was on a remote server that crashed. The administrator was unable to restore the BBS and wanted me to start another BBS from a new. I put a lot of work into HAvens BBS and just don't have it in me to start over again. I will miss my users but I'll never run a BBS again.

    see, it's people like you who ruin it for everyone. now this person might not give free hosting to another dumbass because the next dumbass will blame them when something goes wrong. that was YOUR system. you could have taken care of it, but you didnt.

    [to Hustler]:
    If you actually had a backup, it's a relatively trivial matter to
    restore it once the OS is reloaded/fixed. I think you're lying.

    If you backed up your BBS, then why did you say you'd have to
    start over again? Couldn't you restore your backup?

    Because he didn't install his BBS in the first place, Marissa did it for
    him. He doesn't know how to install/fix/restore anything.

    Yeah, I will go months at a time without checking on my BBS (other than to make sure I answer any questions from users. in other news, I have users!).

    Nothing against MarissaG, but I would never, ever run any kind of BBS on "managed" hosting, primarily because of the issue you're having now. It does take some of the pain and suffering away from the day-to-day, but that pain & suffering is all part of the process.

    I've been kind of out of the loop a bit, did you lose access to the backups? are they corrupt? Is there anything we can do to help?

    this guy had all of this for free and it was a good deal. he screwed up the system multiple times an marissa fixed it for him. it really pisses me off to see freeloaders like this try to blame the provider. it takes no effort to make a backup and download it to home.

    there's nothing wrong with managed hosting or getting your own dedicated hosting... if your provider is stable. in this guy's case it's a case of operator stupidity.

    Thanks man but I don't know what happened with Marisa. I tried restoring with 5 different backups. Then Marisa setup a new BBS and wanted me to copy the files from the old BBS to the new one. I thought about and said enough is enough. I'm just not interested in running a BBS anymore. If I had my own internet and servers I might start another one but honestly BBS land needs more users. Not SysOPs. Pharcyde has always been my goto bbs. It's reliable and has everything I need and want with in a BBS. The ANsi work is great too. Thanks for the offer but the world can so without another BBS.

    with 5 different backups. Then Marisa setup a new BBS and wanted me to copy the files from the old BBS to the new one.

    that's a pretty good way to restore your bbs to working order real quick.

    the files from the old BBS to the new one. I thought about and said enough is enough. I'm just not interested in running a BBS anymore.

    enough is enough with what? that's part being a sysop. it's not hard.
    stuff screws up and you restore it.

    For $5/month you can get a VPS on a site like Linode (there are many
    others also), and run SBBS (on Linux) there. It's virtually 100% uptime
    and backups/restores are trivial. I have a testing/experimental BBS
    that I run on a Linode, and it's NEVER failed. You're out of excuses.

    what do you mean crashing?

    if the OS took a dump, and you had backups, your provider could have put it back up in about 20 mins and then you restore with your backups.

    i'd rather cut my own dick off than rent a server to a moron.from what i've heard you junked your server multiple times.

    if you want to rent a cheap server, go on OVH. figure out how to work it yourself. it's not hard. you wont find someone to kiss your ass and baby you unless you pay them a lot of money.
