We sincerely apologise for the outages over the past day - it seems we picked another lemon with hosting companies.

We find ourselves yet again seeking another one and thank you for your patience during these testing times.

It seems the we have been shafted yet again by a web hosting company, they have had a meltdown and it has taken 5 days to get systems online again. Their customers across the world are outraged and the company is likely to fold as a result therefore we will arrange an emergency transfer to a new host as soon as we can in the new year.

Please accept our apologies on behalf of HHF and Hua Hin Media to our sponsors and members, we hope the site will stay online for the coming days but cant guarantee it.

What is the hosting company? I want to avoid them.

Looks like the HHF host is "A Small Orange", server located in Texas. See their issues at https://status.asmallorange.com/.

Perhaps HHF should have gone for a bigger orange (or at least an orange closer to Thailand, which would make latency awesome, Hong Kong has some good hosting deals).

Looks like it ended up being "A Big Lemon".

We are currently seeking a HK or UK hosting provider.

We will be moving to a new server within the next 48 hours. The data migration will occur during office hours CST so downtime in Asia will be over night.

We apologise in advance for any outages during this period.

Wonder how everyone is getting on at 'clearing the cache'? Took me several attempts.

It's been up on TRUE for the most part since the transition was finished yesterday. It's been down on TOT most of the time. TOT is erratic, no pattern to when up and when down. As of this writing TOT is up at 0500, it was down 0300 to about 0445. Teething pains I guess. Pete :cheers:

Thanks for your patience. TOT has been very problematic during this procedure - Thai ISPs use a lot of server caching.

We lost posts between midnight and 8am on July 26th, only about 6-7 posts, we have tried to restore what we could and all is operating as usual again. If you're reading this you're on the new forum, the old one was disabled over 24 hours ago.
