    The email probably ended up in your spam folder.
    I manually activated you registration from last night, you can now login.

    Ok thank you. Disregard the message I just sent. I used my first registration user-pass and it worked. Thanks

    We have installed a caching extension to improve server performance.

    If you have a fast internet connection the HLPDB should load much quicker now, especially in long list views.

    Have fun!

    The forum that accompanies the HLPDB got a huge update this week.

    It's a separate site so it has it's own user registration and while it is in English most users are from Germany and Austria and post in German.

    Some top notch German amp builders and guitar builder are regulars there.
    Please feel free to post in English as everybody speaks it :)

    You can browse most forums (but not all) if you are not registered yet, so please check it out.

    The server is on maintenance and the site will be down for the week.
    Please be patient, thank you!

    Friends of the HLPDB: If you get occasional error messages from the database this is due to a daily backup routine of the server.

    The server makes a backup at 5am CET, which is 11pm on the East Coast (or 12pm for 2 more weeks because we are not on DST yet) or 2pm in Japan.

    During the backup the services go down for approx. 3 minutes, so please be patient and come back a couple of minutes later.

    Thank you!

    Our server has gotten a faster Internet line today (75Mb/s down and 10Mb/s up).

    I hope this improves your experience with the HLPDB :cheers:

    The HLPDB is well in it's 11th year (wow!) and thanks to user bosnialove I found a quirk that must have bugged a lot of users: Apostrophes (like in "late 50's PAFs") in text you submit would throw a database error, because this character is used for listing the database fields.

    We are now replacing this character with ยด automatically :cool:
