We hang in there most days, but I wanted to apologize to the entire 123MM community for all the down time today. I have severely underestimated our needs on the backend for a day like this. Therefore, I'm going to make some changes as early as tomorrow night. I just hope that we can do better going foward.

It's understandable, such a rare! Mini event today.
I did go to 'other' lesser Mac sites for my Mini info at times and posts got kinda skittish in the frenzy this morning.
Just goes to show you what a great resource (The Source) we have here for Mini lovers. thanks.

For goodness sake Charles, don't beat yourself up! Yesterday was a freak event, a sudden release of slow-building pressure. Judging by the frequency with which Apple releases Mini updates, it isn't likely to happen again for a loooong time... Smile

And don't worry about the regulars leaving town. We wouldn't desert you guys.... anyway, no other forum would have us.... Wink Laughing

I wouldn't be too sure JB...

Odds are, that Grumpy Olde Farts Forum might let grouches & geezers like us in, as long as we flash our pensioner cards.. Very Happy

I still felt bad JohnnyBoy. Thanks for the encouragement though!

It's looking a little better, but I'm still struggling with a few issues and IPs (Evil or Very Mad) on the backend.

Have a nice day guys!

Charles, if you feel really bad about it, you could send everyone a new mini Razz It would make you feel better, not so much your wallet Wink

It takes a lot of time and energy to put up this site, there is no need to to apologize.
Let me take advantage to thank you again for 123Macmini.

No need to apologize, Charles; stuff happens. We all appreciate what you and your brothers do for the mini community! Smile

Charles, the fact that you guys have such a sense of personal responsibility is probably the reason why this is such a well-run site and fantastic place to visit.

I can only echo what Fox and zedtvl have said - there's no need to apologise; you couldn't have prepared for what happened because Apple gave no warning that, this time, the rumours were for real.

Thanks! We really do care about 123MM and the people that participate here. It's nice to hear that people appreciate our efforts. That means more than you know.

I echo the sentiments of the every who posted above, we can put up with the odd site outage once in a blue moon to have this great community.

I never have any trouble getting on Charles. I don't get home until six though. Smile

Honestly, you guys have done a great job with this site over the years. I wouldn't even worry about an outage here and there.
