Our server went <KAPUT!> at about 6:30 PM Pacific time last night, and was offline for about 5 or 6 hours after that. I apologize if you had any frustration in trying to access the forum last night! :bang

The service outage was due to some kind of electrical power problem at the data center in Fremont, California, where our server is located. In other words, it was totally out of my control! It was frustrating to see the forum off line for so many hours, but there was nothing to do but sit back and wait for the data center people to deal with it.

The good news is that no forum data was lost and here we are today back at 100%. Those of you who have been with us for more than a few years probably remember the big crash we had about five years ago where everything was lost. That was a real wake-up call about some technical vulnerabilities with our old server... and that got us to the much more reliable server that we're on today.

Hopefully, most forum members had something better to do on a Friday night than read the forum... and I was the only one who noticed the outage! :goof

I wish I could say that was true for me, but I did try to browse the forum. Glad everything is okay!
