    This forum and LCVG are the only ones I go to for info and, just shootin' da breeze.

    But, I haven't been able to get www.lcvg.com/forum to come up now, for days.

    Anyone have an inside scoop?

    I've tried at home and at work so, I don't think it's me.

    The server got attacked hard by a virus, effectively wiped and they're in the process of rebuilding it and attempting to make it less prone to attack.

    Luckily, there was a very recent backup so all is not lost. They're taking their time to get it back up to make sure they're protected etc.

    Yep, still alive Derrick. Just hurting is all. We got hit pretty nasty last friday and the server pretty much fell to it's knees. We're looking at Friday as a return date. We should have a redirect message up soon on the site letting folks know what happened. Apologies for just disappearing. It's not planned trust us.

    No apologies needed! Sorry to hear about the attack. Friggin virus'...what a pain in the ass...[​IMG]

    I was just having lcvg withdrawl symptoms...that's all. [​IMG]

    Take you time to do whatever you have to do to make the website safe. If there is any way I could help...just say so. [​IMG]

    Just to let everyone know it will probably be Monday or Tuesday before we get the site back up and running fully, if you are lucky you'll might see it pop up here and there while work is on going. The good news is we are taking this time to do it up right and performing some much needed upgrades to the site. We are really sorry for all the downtime.

    Also we'd like to thank the HTF for letting us keep up this thread in our time of need.

    I logged into HTF just too see if someone posted about the status of LCVG. I noticed it's been down a few days.
    Although I may not post there much I do like to read it.

    Glad to see it'll be back.

    And another thanks to HTF.

    I finally got around to heading over here to find out what is going on as well. Glad to hear that there was a semi-recent backup available. Sorry that there is a lot of work to be done.

    It's funny seeing everybody's REAL name on here instead of the screen name. It's fun trying to match the real name to the screenname.[​IMG]

    Just to let people know our new firewall won't be in place for a few more days, currently we are hoping for a Friday or Saturday launch.
