    Imagine how much rosacea knowledge would be lost if this site went down.

    Site was down for a couple days, dunno why.

    To see if a site is actually down you can do a simple test.

    Go to your Start menu, then select "run". In the text field type "command".

    You will get a black screen called the "command prompt".

    Type 'ping forum.rosaceagroup.org' (without the quotations")

    If you get a series of messages saying "reply..." then the sight is functioning. If you get something else other than that, the site is down.

    Always scary giving out DOS prompts to those who have not learnt DOS commands! Ouch!

    Sometimes Warren does some work on the site to up-grade it. Sometimes it's just a demand thing. Not normally for 2 days but then I wasn't checking the Forum...was swimming in the pool and playing. Got to love school holidays with the kids!

    Ping only indicates that a computer on the other end is alive and willing to respond to your ping request. It unfortunately doesn't indicate if the website that is hosted on that computer is in fact alive.

    ;)

    If you type in 'forum.rosaceagroup.org' in your browser and the forum doesn't load, well then it is just plain down.
