    Yup. He posted on Facebook this morning that we were experiencing difficulties. Seems to be all fixed now.

    Yeah apparently there were DNS issues. The host took care of it this morning. I'm nots ure on the root cause, but note to self I have to setup an instant notifier for downtime, I actually didn't even realize it until AndyZee sent me a message on Facebook the site was down.

    I guess that's a flaw. There's not really any other good way to let people know what's going on when there's server issues, at least not that I can think of.

    I'm sure that if AZ is down for a day, we'll live. But if you really want to notify folks, I imagine you can put together a mail distribution list with everyone's email and send notification. Just a thought.

    Yeah the emails are all listed in the site database, so if the site is down I can't access them. Actually I was thinking of extracting all the email addresses and setting up a newsletter program, but I want to be sure before I do that I'm not spamming anyone. I would actually like to send out say a monthly newsletter that just listed hot topics, what's going on, any AZ member specials they can get in on, and maybe any general announcements.

    You can always give people the option to opt out.

    Or even better, give folks the option to sign up for an email DL.
