    We apologize for the unexpected forum downtime this morning. The last 24 hours have been significant for us in terms of hardware upgrades.

    We setup a new server that is a dedicated database server yesterday morning, in addition to some RAM and other application upgrades. At 5:30am, the connection between the webserver and database server was interrupted, causing the forums to be offline. This was corrected at 9am this morning.

    We apologize for the delay and outage. We will continue to tweak performance over the coming days so you should continue to see overall performance improve.

    Thank you,
  2. Good thing you guys got it fixed. The twitching and vomitting was getting horrible. I needed my fix. I was going crazy this morning when I couldn't get on.

    Heads up...

    We're experiencing some email problems on this end, so you probably won't be getting PM or new post notifications until we resolve...
