    We had an unexpected outage yesterday. Terribly sorry for the inconvenience. This is one of the reasons we need to migrate to a new, 24x7 supported hosting provider. In fact due to the outage, this has already been arranged and the dns should be switching over to the new host any moment now!

    How will this affect you?

    In 14hrs we will lock the forum and take a backup. Then this will be migrated to the new hosting provider. There will likely be another outage to bring the forum back on-line, but this one is planned! I can't say exactly how long it will last, hopefully no more than 12hrs.

    Most of the site is already up at the new provider. We're just waiting on the forum backup tonight so that no data is lost.

    Thank You for your patience! Once we make it through this it should be smooth sailing from here on out. [​IMG]
