TFB Back Online

I am sure many of you noticed we have been offline for over 24 hours. A perfect storm of server and database problems happened all at once, for reasons not yet known. A number of people worked all through last night and all day to get it fixed and are in desperate need of sleep. Our sister site All Outdoor will hopefully be back online shortly.

    Welcome back.

    Welcome back!
    I was really fearing that TFB had been blacklisted in this country (UAE)…
    Just one humble request: in my “desperate” search to find a reason for this situation I’ve stumbled upon TFB twitter and FB accounts… if they’re managed by the same team I would have expected a disclaimer/notification there, it would have been reassuring. πŸ˜‰
    Anyway, welcome back, I’m very glad to read you again, hours were longer yesterday!!!

    • CrankyFool

      I saw at least two notices on the FB account that the site was down.

      • Giolli Joker

        D’oh… I didn’t see any… πŸ™

    this is punishment for blogging about evil black weapons. If the guns had wooden stocks, you’d be fine.

    I’m sorry you had problems and am very happy to hear they have been resolved. Thank you for all the hard work you do in bringing us one of the best firearms sites on the internet.

    Obviously, you were hacked by the Anti gunners and/or the Gov’t- too much truth, free thought and free exchange of ideas going on here…..
