  • Floating on a Cloud

    The forum migration has completed. Our forum is now much more secure and reliable.

    Very sorry to hear that you have had to take this action, but great that we can carry on communicating through this forum and continue to share our thoughts with fellow 360 photographers.
    I wondered what had happened when I was getting "403 Forbidden" messages.
    ​​​​​​​Thank you for your efforts Bill.

      Hi Hugh - you are a long time and very valued member of our community which we owe many thanks. During this transitional phase, our server was hacked - what timing! No harm to any personal data or to the store which resides on its own server but the timing was right to move our forum to the cloud on its own dedicated server. The migration was filled with many challenges but we managed the migration of old to new. During the process, many errors popped up hence the 403 messages. We currently only have redirects until CNAME records are set up to show NN URL but in the interim, it's business as usual while we continue to work on the backend, Some super long posts "may" have been truncated (haven't found any yet) as the cloud forum limits the number of characters for a single post to I believe 10,000 but looking to change that,
      The cloud is much more secure and patches and updates are done automatically.
      thx

        Bill. I was curious if this may have also impacted some of the shortened URLs as well? I'm trying to access some of the links provided in the Mecha Manual and they are broken. For example one of them is this one: [deleted link]
        Thanks!

              They probably host on Amazon scalable severs. Added benefit :-)

                Perhaps these are some from QRG https://www.nodalninja.com/Manuals/MECHA_E1_C1_QRG.pdf

                  I'm not to surprised there will be a few bugs to sort out. I'm not a techy guy so I rely heavily on support.
