It's been quite a while - any updates? (I mean, even I've noticed by now :) ).

Both are now back up and going strong, hopefully this will last for a while.

Yeah, that was fixed, then.
But today again, can't connect to G3 nor SHSforums. Something seems to be down...

If anyone needs IESDP, it's now completely immune to such shortages:

According to Julius Borisov's post in this thread https://forums.beamdog.com/discussion/66213/g3-and-shs-down/p1#latest it's nothing to worry about. Probably he is in contact with Liam Esler for this issue.

It's amazing how G3 goes down at regular intervals. I don't remember Pocketplane's servers out for longer than one day or two, if anything.

There's a few reasons I don't pretend to be aware of that make a humongous difference, but one is definitely a bot spam, that was a regular thing at PPG a long time ago, which was fixed as a late, while the other sites never really had. So peoples tolerance of those and other things. As it's a sort of balance between this and that and what the upkeepers like&tolerate.

Yes, SHS and G3 are on the same server so it's either both or nothing. I hope they'll be up soon...

Still can't get a lock on either... but the iesdp works. But that's due it being in another server.
EDIT: And now they are back.

Jeah.
To be specific, the SHSForum & G3 forum can't be entered, but others, like say IESDP links works.

Who wants to bet it is *another* hard drive failure...?

Sometimes it just best to have a hosted site than one from your home.
