Anyway we can take advantage of that "tragedy"
I see more traffic here since, but we don't have the volume or content to entertain, plus this a Canadian only site.

In all reality, I'm still pissed they lost everything, it was invaluable to me.

I think they had 10000+ members who had contributed 5+ years worth of gear experiences.

May 15th they will fire up again, within a day they will have twice as many members from around the world and 10 times the content. I'll be one of them.

I think most Canadians by nature lay back and take things in, they aren't up to initiating posts etc... We have some good people here but we really need our lurkers to start adding content and speak up. Another thing is a good portion of gear page content was expensive boutique stuff. Seems whenever I talk about a expensive guitar or amp here I have 3 replies from fellow Canadians that think I'm nuts for spending over $150 on a piece of gear. I'm exagerating of course but you get my gist.

I miss the gear page already.

Well said.... but we need to get our butts in "gear" here and make this the go to site, at least Canada's go to site. Anyone that reads this. The more you put in, the more you get out. So lets get posting and get the data base built up.:DevilGuitar:

And may I add that the database should be backed up as well. Scott, you may want to get a physical copy every now and then. :) :) :)

Yes, we should use that Gear Page disaster as a lesson. I will check into that and make sure I get a physical back-up that I can store at home. :thanks5qx:

The one good thing about the Gear Page crash was that I am playing a lot more! But I do miss it too! Hopefully this site keeps getting bigger.:food-smiley-004:

They are still down over there.

The Gear Page website is down at present due to a recent hard disk failure. We will continue to update this page as status changes:

As of the late night of June 2nd, we are still waiting for the webhost to complete setting up the new more secure hard disk configuration. We are doing this to insure that this incident doesn't keep happening. We were "hoping" that the site could come back up Friday, but we have to wait until the new RAID configuration is setup to proceed. We'll get the TGP up and running as soon as possible.
