Toolarmy Update

Word from a semi-official source tells me that in regards to the Tool/Toolarmy servers:

  • The maintenance is planned, and it will be back “soon”
  • Don’t expect any upgrades (yet)

Update: The following message was seen on Toolband moments before the downtime commenced:

27 October, 2009

TOOL ARMY GOING DARK FOR A WHILE

Please be advised that any time now the ToolArmy site will be shut down while we deal with some maintenance issues. As of now, I’m not sure how long it will take to make the necessary adjustments. Thanks for your patience and continued support.

Hey BadKitty and Kittaan! (sure miss you guys and TA!) Kiddo called me and told me that Blair posted a *notice* in the news section about three minutes before TA went down that said TA would be going down shortly to fix the issues TA has been having, maintenance and whatnot, that they didn’t know how long it would be down or when it would be back up.   Probly has to do with the stuff distorted did and fix it so corinthian can get back on. Just wanted to let y’all know so ya won’t be in the dark! Take care, I’m going… Read more »

Miss you bells!  Thanks for info even if it’s not what i want to hear.

Blair posted a *notice* in the news section about three minutes before TA went down…”
Wow, I had no idea about that.  Glad to hear that at least there was some warning, but this was handled poorly by any measure… any self-respecting web master knows how to post a temporary default page in situations like this with a brief “be back soon” message…

In any case, it’s great to hear from you Bella, and thanks for that update.  Hope you and Joe are having a killer time, and look forward to hearing all about it.

thanks for the info …

 if anyone what’s to get a small fix, johnhoward’s page in facebook seems to be the new TA.  about a dozen TA’ers were posting there today. 

*keeping fingers crossed*

Ah, that John Howard is a man of many talents.  I had no idea about his exploits in OZ.  But I have to draw the line somewhere… no FB for me.

It hopefully will be back up soon. It appears to me that we had some kind of intruder on the website. And thats what obviously sparked the website to shut down. Don’t listen to me. Im just pondering…

Can’t say I’m shocked by the lack of notice (i.e., a few minutes) that was given about the down time the way that website’s run.

Whatever will I do without being able to post Simpson’s quotes.

I’m not shocked either.  At least we have fourtheye to keep us posted.  I’m sure this is not Blair’s fault, but how “planned” was this maintenance?
Hellboy, how did you come across the actual post?

Three hours warning  the site was going down.
 
That’s what I call planning.

So if this is the quasi-TA message board is there where I make a post asking about presales?

I’m going to take a wild guess and go with Poopyface = MarkusPoop?


Here’s one for you:
“If you’re gonna get mad at me every time I do something stupid, then I guess I’ll just have to stop doing stupid things.”

What was it that gave it away?  The poop in my name and/or the simpsons quotes.

Definitely sorry to see the site completely down, although maybe when it comes back up I’ll be able to access my profile again?  Dunno.  Nice to see all the familiar names here though.

This appears to be more than just routine maintenance to me.
Routine maintenance doesn’t require several days.
Corinthian, you should definitely be back on the site after this.
Hopefully they don’t prune all the good stuff like last time.

Well glad to finally find some fucking information on this. Way to go Blair, 3 minutes is plenty of warning…
I am a pessimist at heart so when the page wouldn’t load two days in a row, I feared it was gone for good and never to return.
Hopefully they fix cori’s account too.
Hey peoples. Don’t worry, I think its safe to say if you are replying to this page, you are a TA junkie 😀

@ danielkauai21 – No shit, that is a great shirt.   @ Cori – so cool to hear from you, and I sure hope whatever’s going on does get you back on to TA pronto (along with the rest of us   @ Chris (WVA), BKGG, Rabbit, K2, Leah, Pete, CM, SH- great to see you all here.  Miss you all.  Big thanks to Matt (Hellboy), yet again, for all his efforts.  This is the best source for TººL news… and a place for us junkies to get a quick fix as well while our drug of choice is temporarily unavailable…… Read more »

johnhoward must have spilled his drink on the server, and I have just found out that Blair has taken the TA membership funds and is using them to buy WOPR from the movie Wargames as a replacement.
Pax!
