Dearest members of our (maybe not so) little Fountain Pen Nuthouse on the digital prairie,

Unfortunately, due to a a small technical hitch with regard to our automated system for hosting payments, exactly during the period when admin wasn't available for fixing this, our site went down.

Fortunately all was fixed around noon Central European time, so everybody should have had access again as from about 2 PM Central European time.

No posts or topics were lost during this outage, we just lost a little online time.

You can all also be sure that we will take measures to prevent thsi from happening in the future.

HTH, warm regards,
Wim

Muchos gracias! Obviously with this kind of problem, it wasn't possible to even access the site to leave a message why it was down ;) but I am thankful it's back up! :D

Best wishes,

Thank god FPN is back!!! :cloud9:
I was checking for I do not know how many times daily to see if FPN is back online, and it made me frustrated not to be able to be in the company of my fellow FPNers... :bonk:
With all the chaotic things that are happening to my country, I think FPN is one of the few things that keep me on the sane side of things...
It goes without saying that a big "thank you" is in order, to you Wim and all the other people that, with their effort, put the FPN back online! :clap1:

I am glad the board is back up and running. With so many forums and sub-forums and the amount of traffic FPN receives, it is really missed when it is down. Thanks for all the hard work and dedication from all the admins who donate their precious time to keeping this vibrant site alive.


We are grateful!

I am grateful for FPN and you, Wim, along with all that FPN's administrators, moderators and members have done to make it possible. Thank you all so much for your love, time and energy in the pursuit of beauty in the art of fountain pens and the arts of writing and drawing in the use of them.
