    The owner needs to get a new router. It could be down up to a week.

    I tried to connect but I could not get onto the site. The problem with both of those sites have to do with the Internet Router that the sites use. I found this info on a Yahoo Group which I am a member of & it says:

    February 15, 2003 Announcement: Our router is almost gone, it stays up for small periods of time and then dies. Normal service is likely to be restored around Wednesday or Thursday. We apologize for the inconvenience. You can help us to pay for a new router by making a donation. Thanks.

    Thank God!

    I was really getting worried. Definitely a pain to re-log my DVD's!

    The site is working for me at the moment, but I don't know if it is back for good.

    I got a mail today saying they are up

    No details however, but I kinda doubt they would word it that way if they expect to go down again. The router info is also removed from their front page, so I guess they are really back in business.

    What's wrong with dvdaf.com now you can look at the main page but your collection is gone and it does not recognize any usernames? Also the search features don't work.

    They are obviously having some major glitches. Hopefully they'll fix it quick.

    I only use DVD Aficionado to keep track of the upcoming DVD releases, but unfortunately they have all been erased. [​IMG]

    Yesterday I received a bulk email from them asking for a donation.

    Today my entire collection is wiped from their database.

    What the heck is going on?

    They are obviously having some kind of technical glitch since no titles show up if you do a search.

    I would give them a week to fix things before I get worried.

    My entire list is also gone at DVDAficionado. Glad I still use DVDTracker and have a list available for my records.

    Couldn't they give us some warning? Hopefully they'll be back up soon.

    As Bill J said, it is probably a technical glitch.

    Also take into consideration that the site may have been hacked. I'm not saying that DVD Aficionado was hacked but it could have been hacked since they are dirty people on the Internet who would hack a site.

    I hope it's not that our colletions are gone, but the whole database is missing, when you search for ANY title, nothing shows up, so our collections are probably ok if they fix this.
    If not, I'm screwed.

    See - just a glitch - hopefully it's understood by the site and won't be repeated.
