Well done Bruce,

Just in case you read this, the dozier ones amongst Clydesite membership can't remember our passwords, and the Clydesite system, whilst now restored, isn't fully working as there is no facility to have a 'reminder' sent for the password challenged amongst us :@)

Cheers,

Russ.

P.S. Well done also on the team that built this new Clydemaritime site. The more the merrier.

Same here, maybe we have been BANNED for being naughty!
I hope the database becomes accessible and can be linked also from here ... the rest I have left behind.

ps yes it has reached Yorkhsire now, on auto log-in as well.

Congrats you have TWINS!

Brenda, try a different browser.

I am logged in with Firefox on my laptop but I was getting the holding page on my HTC Hero handset's default browser but it lets me in using Opera Mini.

Won't let me on either. Just the holding page. Tried address from my favourites and googling for Clydesite, Clydeshipping etc. Forced refresh has no effect. Maybe it's because I'm on AOL. Will keep trying. But will try and keep in touch with folk who are staying here too.

Can't get it either so far. Looks like it's waiting on the nameservers propagating around the world again - can take up to 24hrs.

I like this Board too but it takes a bit of getting used to as does everything new when you're getting into the dotage but the Erikean will know all about that.

Still off again in southern Yorkshire despite being there during yesterday afternoon, seems odd as it must have reached my ISP.

EDIT 08.17 whoops it's back but with some hiccups in Tugtalk.

Glad to say that Clydesite and TugTalk have indeed been restored to us.

You may need to flush your DNS cache to see it, (I had to do this too). In Windows: RUN then type ipconfig /flushdns

A forced refresh after that wont hurt either.

Can I just thank all of you, and especially the guys who set up this site because it has been wonderful to know that life continued whilst the server was down.

I really don't know what happened but my guess, and it is indeed just a guess, is that the server the sites were on collpased utterly and they have restored from back up to a new server.

This means we are a couple of months out of kilter )in fact, maybe a lot more) and I will do what I can from my own back ups to rectify this. You will appreciate this is a lengthy process using a normal broadband line.

Congratulations to all at this site for your efforts, they are so very much appreciated and I hope that co-operation and goodwill between here and the original sites will be the order of the day.

Kind regards
Bruce from Clydesite

Well done Bruce, though I may be alone in saying I still can't log onto the site and the password thingy comes up as Brontosaurus Error 404.

Just a p.s. seeing the fine photo above that Dougie Clark ("If Dougie were here he would tell you"). Sorry but I can't resist doing a "MacPhail" and stoke a wee bit more coal onto the flames of the ferry debate a la Vital Spark.

Is there an analogy to be had with Clydesite.co.uk going off service and Clydemaritime.co.uk as a backup to be had between CalMac and a second ferry operator running in tandem? I suspect that most folk interested in the Clyde and ships will all be members of Clydesite, Ships of CalMac and now Clydemaritime. For my part I see no harm at all in having three varied sites to visit. There is a similar debate from islanders at having more than one server operating between your island and the mainland.

Just a thought !!! When you live on an island it is very reassuring to know there is another way off than just the one ship :@)

Best regards,

Russ.

Och, here we go again, these Old Portonians really missed out in not attending schools a centruy ago when they were young

Barvasian perosnage, it's not 'when you're getting into the dotage', it's 'when you're getting into your dotage', okay? You make it sound like a car or suchlike. Now pay attention, I will be asking questions later.

Oh, the Board being Clyde-related, I thought you meant real ships, as produced by John Brown, Barclay Curle, Blythswood, Fairfield, Stephens, Scotts, Lithgow, Russel, Beardmore, Connell, Harland & Wolff, The Greenock Dockyard, etc, etc. !

Hey come off it now, this site is Clyde based but covers shipping worldwide, everyone has their own particular interests and no-one is 'dumb'. Just keep posting good ship photos and info in the appropriate sections. And there is room for some good-natured exchanges that are not about shipping ....
