Is the Albion website down or something? I've tried to access it for the past few days, but have gotten naught but error messages. Sad

Ouch! I read your post and tried to access Albion's site and there may definitely be something amiss with it. The error message I keep receiving is that it cannot be found on any server. Worried

My initial guess is that there is some difficulty with the site itself or the FTP upon which it is stored. The thought crossed my mind that perhaps it may be down for some updating/upgrading, however, as a web designer myself, I don't think that's the case (I would find it unusual for a site to be pulled for several days in order to upgrade it ... it's more logical to create the updates/upgrades and then overwrite the older site in a single instant so that there's no interruption in accessing the site). I'm more inclined to think that the server it's stored on is most probably down.

"And so it shall be that in the days of peace, one sword shall keep another in its scabbard."

Have a great day ! Best Regards,
Jim

Yikes! How long does it usually take for a downed server to get back online?

Perhaps a bit tricky question but it's worth a shot...

The core of the site appears to be back now, but the individual product pages are still unavailable.

Hi, Timothy ... yep, I'm the "Discerner guy" and I sincerely thank you most graciously for the salute. Happy

I just tried the Albion site again and with no luck ... earlier I also had the core of the base page try to come up, but now I'm having no luck at all. I'm sure more than ever that it must simply be a server problem. Cry Oh, how I miss drooling about all their stuff this weekend!

"And so it shall be that in the days of peace, one sword shall keep another in its scabbard."

Have a great day ! Best Regards,
Jim

Maybe... it is a sign...

The finished the Sempach and it was just too much for them. The sheer coolness shot like a lightning bolt through the forge, into the server room, and blasted their web box. Zap!

At least Albion can still post pix of the finished Templar in here sometime this week. Maybe the Sempach a bit later?

It was a problem with the hosting company. They changed a bunch of stuff without us knowing. We are working on getting the site back up as soon as we can. Sorry for the non acces over the weekend.
