    Got hacked and was down for a few days last week, then back up for 3-4 days wit no picture loader, then back down again for the count.

    Started reading my fantasy novel again on my lunch break.

    Rollitup has been my only advertising venue so I'm starting to wonder if I should start looking elsewhere.

    It's been another 3-4 days now... surely they'll be back up soon...

    Wish we had promoted this site more before the great hackathon of 2017.

    They were a bit disingenuous about what had happened ... claimed a Ddos and when they were called on it told us to basically mind our own business they didn't have to explain themselves. Seems like a serious hardware failure ... but a high school computer student with a C average could rebuild a server in a day or 2 so no idea when or if they'll be back.
    Too bad ... we had a nice Massachusetts community started there after legalization was passed

    I've wondered about that myself but it could be a number of things, even a prolonged ddos attack or server issues relating to an attack. I hope they come back online, not because the advertising is cheap but because it's still a great board for cob related news, diy, etc.

    There are literal archives of so much data on RUI.

    For what it's worth, RIU is staggering back to life ... they've gone from completely down to giving a database error when you access the url

    It was back up for 1 hour yesterday but all of the threads were from 2/14/16 and before. Apparently their admin has been in the hospital for a month?

    Seriously broke-ass shenanigans

    Sounds like they are restoring from backup. Can't be that hard. For some reason though so many admins I meet want to host stuff on their own servers and manage everything themselves but then something like this outage happens and they have a lot of legwork to get it working again.
