• Mark Lewis - system status

    Hello All!

    As some of you will know I get echo's and files using the Star system with files coming in from individual contributors.

    The Star system consists of five of us spread around the UK (me), USA, Canada and Australia.

    On of these at least for echo's is Mark Lewis who's system has gone down but I have received the following update from him :

    The power supply in my main system died and my bbs on it is
    down until i can get another power supply... hopefully that's all it
    needs... took it apart yesterday and cleaned it to no avail...
    plugged in a power supply tester and yeah, it shows it is bad and
    faulty... might take a few days to gather the funds and get one...

    The fact that his system is down does not affect the system as using the Star system we have multiple redundancies to source echo's and files from around the world.

    Netmail's that are routed might be effected though for a few hours - days.

    Outbound I will adjust my system to deal with this as much as possible.
