The CB Tricks Forum is completely down, and my local DNS server gives me back a 404 (Site not found).

The CB Tricks website has a page marker with "hello" at the top left.

More than this I cannot say. :unsure:

I too am now seeing a 'Hello' message at the left side of the screen.

It looks like they may have had a server crash. Earlier today CBtricks was displaying the default apache server message saying everything was installed correctly.

Hopefully they're restoring from a backup and will be online soon. I can't really see them shutting down without at least making mention of it somewhere.

A message from Bennie is that he has been doing some work on the board and things didn't go quite as planned. He is working to get it back up as soon as he can and time allows.

As of 10:50 am CDST time, the site is still down with server issues. Galaxy page is up but any contents is still down. Keep your fingers crossed. Bill

Over the last few weeks I have been doing server updating file cleanup
and etc. Yesterday I got a late start and one of the build processes
didn't go as planned. It was too late for me to fix so I left the site
down. I am working to get it back up ASAP.

I should have waited to the weekend when I am off work to do this, but
was trying to get everything done.

I still have some server software that needs to be updated and will wait
till Christmas so I will be ready and have more time for Murphy's law.

Another unrelated problem we had to deal over the last two weeks is with
the dumb asses at SORBS. They listed over 7000 IP's owned by my server
company for being a dynamically allocated IP address or NAT host. In fact
the IP's where not dynamic. I have 4 static IP's with the server and have
been with me the last 3 years.

The plus side is I don't know of any "respectable" system admin that
still use them for their blacklist.
My home ISP did till I informed them last week with a little history of
SORBS and now they no longer use them.

If you don't know anything about SORBS search SORBS or even better SORBS
Sucks and you will find what a bunch of clowns these people are. We are
finely off their damn list.

Sorry about the screw up and I take all the blame.

well i sure hope i am wrong.

This is the second day in a row that i could not log on to the web page.

I'm not talking about the forum, i'm talking about the actual site.

I am hoping that others here can still log on, and it's just an issue with my internet service.

Please check and post back here.

  • @ ButtFuzz:
    on the connector with the green wire, if you short that to a nearby black wire, the power supply will turn on. (for use as a bench supply or whatever)
  • @ ButtFuzz:
    And IIRC, the purple wire is -12VDC, but that is from memory and it does not serve.
  • @ ButtFuzz:
    So if you need, say, 7v, connect + to the Yellow wire and - to the Red wire.
  • @ ButtFuzz:
    or or you need 9v connect + to the yellow wire and - to the orange wire. note: not all PSU's have the orange wire nowadays, as many manufactures had the voltage regulation on the motherboard, and all the power supply gives is 12 vdc
  • @ BJ radionut:
    Thanks ROB will check it out!~!! got to clean the work bench a little make room for that big case :)
