    i agree!!! please make it 3/4am? some of us only come on here later on and its a bugger when the site goes down!!

    I hope you thought this through properly.

    If you changed it till say, 5am. At that time Shiny's just getting settled, and you'd get the odd Yank complaining too, because it's only like 10pm there or something. See, it's racist :p

    Actually, I don't give a toss because I do my LJ about now anyway, and download stuff :p

    I say change it to like 7/8am.

    It was around 4am at one time, now its seemingly changed back. In fact, I was going to make a thread on it myself. Whatever time you change the update to, it will always effect people, however, its a lot quieter at 4-5am than at midnight, hence a lot less people effected by the backup

    In conclusion, I'd love you all to bits (apart from you Dom! :p) if you could change the backup time to a more suitable time.

    Thank you, Gracias and Danke Schon.

    6am your time is 1pm over here. One of the busiest times of the day.

    I think we've come to the conclusion that a fair few people would like the times changing, its down to the mod's to give us an answer...

    You just want me to spew and/or die. I shall not give you the satisfaction. But i still hope a tree falls on Bastard. It would make an improvement, and you might even get a fiver from your Insurance Co. :)

    Haha, we got £450 once because some wench reversed into the door. :D

    I think Bastard wanted to self-destruct, 'cause he was fed up with your road rage, shitty driving and sadistic-ness :yes:

    As for my temper, make of it what you will. :p

    Did you call her a "wee old wench"?

    You should have :yes:

    ETA: Read my A-Team episode, Andy ;)

    That A-Team episode is rather amusing (ok, so hysterical) :yes:

    Anybody can be called a 'Wee old wench', anytime, anywhere. I might go though and wake up the ticklish one just to call her a wee old wench.

    Back on topic:

    According to our lovely sys admin:

    "The vbulletin database was running its nightly database export at 12:00. This would have been what was causing the problems. I have moved this to now happen at 02:00. If I make it any later than that, then it won't make it onto the nightly tape backups and that won't be good."

    Hope that's better for you

    Susie :)
