The CPMS website, as well as the Wiki site, and any of my other websites are presently down due to a hardware failure. No ETA has been provided by the hosting company. I apologize for the unexpected outage.

Hi! I had troubles also but eventually I did get in. I have this site on my favorites list and if you do also you can click on favorites and then click feeds go to a past date and look for a forum feed and click there and you will be in. This won't help anyone unable to log in right now but in the future if it happens again you can still enter this way.

Cheers hounddog

Is someone had a recent access with the wiki.bwjm.ca website?

I tried to go to the BWJM's wiki site directly via the link from this forum and my browser returs me a message telling me that he doesn't find the server.... :-\ :-\ :-\

Is the site still exists?

Both the Wiki site and the CPMS site are located on the same webserver. The server still appears to be down, and no further information is available from the hosting provider.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

ANNOUNCEMENT

The following websites will be temporarily unavailable:
- Canadian Paper Money Society (http://www.cpmsonline.ca)
- BWJM.ca (http://www.bwjm.ca)
- BWJM.ca Wiki (http://wiki.bwjm.ca)
- My Currency Collection (http://currency.bwjm.ca)
- Online Canadian Paper Money Museum (http://www.moneymuseum.ca)

On May 27, 2008, the server on which the above websites were hosted had a fatal hard drive failure. All data was lost. As a result of this outage, I am presently researching new hosting providers.

Once a new provider is found, I will endeavour to return all affected websites to service.

As all data for the Wiki site was lost, I am officially asking for volunteers to recreate the high/low lists, and the note registers. I would also like to have some volunteers who are interested in creating an online encyclopedia about Canadian paper money. If you are interested in these roles, please contact me by PM as soon as possible. (Please note, this is not a request for new CPMF moderators).

Thank you, and sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

It looks like some old pages from the Wiki are available as part of the Internet Archive project at www.archive.org

The last page listed is for Dec 10 2007... I am going through it now and seeing what can be salvaged re: data

Ok, it looks like I have at least part of each registry, current to about mid-December last year. I have saved the lists into MS Word douments and am waiting for Brent to let me know where to send them....

Ok, I have rescued what I can. Regrettably, the Archive didn't save every list. A great deal of the data on older notes (1935 and earlier) didn't get archived. I can only assume that the organization's bots were planning on savinf them next pass...

Anyone who is interested in helping with the restoration, or even if you just want the data, drop me a PM with your email address and I will see about sending you the Word files. If there is enough demand, I may host them as a zip file with Rapidshare.

Regards,

Fenian

Due to a marathon of work tonight, I am well on my way to getting things back up and running.

A new Wiki site has been created, and two eager volunteers have stepped forward to get this back in action as soon as possible. I will be updating the links on the Forum this week. The URL will change! You may need to update any bookmarks you have.

I have found a new hosting company and I have set up as many websites as possible. The CPMS website should be completely functional now. My personal website is partially functional as I need to convert some scripts to PHP.

My currency collection website will take a long time to restore as this needs to be completely recoded into PHP and suffered the worst data loss.

The Money Museum website will need to be recoded as well, but should be operational within a couple of days.

I also had a few other non-numismatic websites, and I have managed to get as much done there as possible.

It may take 2-3 days for the new address to propagate around the Internet, so some of you may not be able to access the sites right away. Your patience is appreciated.

If there are any more volunteers who would like to assist in maintaining the Wiki site, please talk to me by PM. It'll be a little crazy at first, but after things calm down, people can focus on specific areas. A bunch of people all doing a small amount of work can accomplish a LOT! ;D

Thanks!

A while ago I printed of the 1954 $1 asterisk notes ( *C/I and *V/V ) and I saved it to my computer!

Does this help?

Yes! It does! The Internet Archive never saved any of that data, and the information I received does not contain this information. I'll send you a PM.



Back with new packaging, same great wiki editor!

UPDATE

The following websites are back in operation:
- Canadian Paper Money Society (http://www.cpmsonline.ca)
- CPM Wiki (http://wiki.cdnpapermoney.com)
- Online Canadian Paper Money Museum (http://www.moneymuseum.ca)
- My Currency Collection (http://currency.bwjm.ca) Partially operational
- BWJM.ca (http://www.bwjm.ca) Partially operational

CPMS Website:
The CPMS website is back in operation. Some people who have registered for the site may have difficulty logging in if their password did not match what I had on file. If this applies to you, please use the forgotten password tool. Registered members will also see a few new options including "My CPMS".

CPM Wiki Site:
The old Wiki site was completely wiped out when the server crashed, but thanks to the Internet Archive (http://www.archive.org) and the contributions of a few members, we have been largely able to reconstruct a great deal of content. Platyfish124 has also been working incredibly hard over the past several days restoring content, page by agonizing page. I want to publicly thank him for his awesome work! THANK YOU!
The new Canadian Paper Money Wiki (CPM Wiki) site is located at http://wiki.cdnpapermoney.com/ and you can all access it immediately. Please have patience as we continue to rebuild it. If you have anything you would like to contribute, please send an email to wiki@cdnpapermoney.com.
As all data for the Wiki site was lost, I am officially asking for volunteers to recreate the high/low lists, and the note registers. I would also like to have some volunteers who are interested in creating an online encyclopedia about Canadian paper money. If you are interested in these roles, please contact me by PM as soon as possible. (Please note, this is not a request for new CPMF moderators).

(wiki.bwjm.ca is no longer operational. The services provided by this site have been moved to wiki.cdnpapermoney.com)

Thank you, and sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

Please check the other note registries, and if you know of any banknotes that aren't in the registries, PLEASE e-mail wiki@cdnpapermoney.com

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the new URL, it is at http://wiki.cdnpapermoney.com/index.php/Other_Note_Registries

I can access the WIKI site from the link posted in the above post but when I try from the link at the top of page located beside the recent post tab I get a message that states.

Umm... OK... The two links are identical, so I don't see right away how you could be getting different results.

Can you please take a screenshot of the error and email it to me? I need to see your entire screen when the error is displayed, not just the error itself. Thanks.

I have tried to send emails to both newsletter@cpmsonline.ca and info@cpmsonline.ca. However, they get bounced back to me with the following error:

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

  newsletter@cpmsonline.ca
    SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<newsletter@cpmsonline.ca>:
    host cpmsonline.ca [69.65.33.49]: 550-Callback setup failed while verifying <>
    550-(result of an earlier callout reused).
    550-The initial connection, or a HELO or MAIL FROM:<> command was

Is this related to the website crash?
