I know you said wherever this is hosted offers disk snapshot backups but the offer still stands for me to pull an off-site backup for you. Heck, my backup even gets pushed out to a cloud provider so you'd get two for the price of one :)

Thank you VERY MUCH for getting this back up and running. I've been lost for months without good Alabama weather discussion. (I was always a lurker, but now have joined.... :) )
I've been going to the Southeast section of AmericanWX.com in the meantime, but it's all North Carolina people.

I never received a verification email so, I'm not sure how I got in but who cares! ❄☃
My whole family is celebrating the return of TalkWeather.
Thank you to any & all who made it possible.
I manually approved your account. You seemed legit :p

Thanks man. Once I get all these little fires out we can talk.

I was a fan before I loaded it on my phone. Now I'm really a fan. Responsive design... such an improvement!

There goes 14+ years of history... Ah well, at least I'm not stuck as Natexxx when I signed up on the vintage TalkWeather when I was in high school (way back on March 15, 2002)!

This eerily reminds me of the fiasco that happened at Easternuswx forums a little over 6 years ago, except this time it was due to a hardware failure.

I hope as much as possible can be saved from the hard drives. This place is kind of sentimental to me. I signed up in the good ol' days of 2005. I remember John Oldshue was one of the founders, I also remember back to the classic capture of John eating a taco on the abc 33/40 weather office webcam. lol

Here is a memory to the past forum, and hopeful for a fully restored talkweather.

Finally, TW is back! Dunno if you need any volunteers, but I'm a full-time web programmer. I would be more than happy to volunteer a few hours here or there to help out with any programming/database restoration. Shoot me a message (or email) and lemme know if you want any help.

Awesome, feels great to be back on Talk Weather. Will Talk Weather be available on TapaTalk soon? I looked up Talk Weather but I don't see it on there. I hope it will be available on TapaTalk because I'm on the go sometimes and I want to be able to have the forum at the touch of my fingers...also it's a lot easier to upload images with TapaTalk.

Thanks!! I'll let you know as we look to do some extra things down the road.

Thanks for coming back! TapaTalk is coming back but we are having to jump through some verification hoops to confirm the domain transfer to me. I'll have an announcement about it next week hopefully.

Something is going on with Tapatalk as I have the old forum topics showing up but it won't let me log in. That's a step up from a "server not found". No clue if that's my phones cache or what but it shows up.

Glad we're back up and running!

Let me know if you need any assistance with modifying the forum template or other general stuff, I've got extensive experience with phpbb in particular and I'm sure this software is just as easy to manipulate. Just about the only thing I can't help with is SQL database related things and private domain e-mail servers

Ssh/telnet = no problem

Love that TW is back! But I have one problem, I cannot get my Avatar to upload and work? Any suggestions?
Thanks...Tim
