    It wasn't anything we could control at the time. EP, waddy, MdSalih and a few others tried to get NTFS running the way it was intended. That didn't happen and we were lucky enough to be able to come back here.

    What does the domain name have to do with the server the forum is on?

    XP-erience.org points to 1 server in the UK
    NTFS.org points to 1 server in the USA.

    I don't know how these things work so I'm not just being a pain when I ask this, I really want to learn something:

    If the domain name is registered to you, isn't it possible to switch which domain name points to which server? If so, you haven't really explained why you popped back up as Xp-erience.org instead of NTFS.org (I MUCH prefer Xp-erience for a name!!!)

    I guess what gets me is that it's just SO frustrating when you keep switching domain names with no notice, or when you otherwise disappear for days at a time leaving no clue behind. I really had given up on the forums ever returning, which would have been a terrible loss. I only learned you were back after doing a Google search for the old XP-erience name to see if I could find out what had happened to the site that I found out you were back, three days (I think) after you were...

    Jewelllllllz sez you will notify members by email next time you do something drastic again?? That would be nice.

    Glad yer back!!

    No no no, what I said was EP mentioned he was going to email all memebers to notify them we're back to XP-erience.org. Whether that has happened or will in the furutre (should something like this happen again), I don't know.

    Ooops, sorry, I misunderstood!

    OK then, this is an official request to EP that you email us every time you reappear!
