Hi everyone,

On behalf of Internet Brands I want to apologize to our membership for the forum being down for so long - almost 24 hours. I don't know what the problem was but I will commit to letting everyone know when I find out from the IB management.

I appreciate your understanding and patience during this time. And yes, I was upset too!

I just came back from my cruise and signed on this morning. I tried all morning long. I was beginning to feel really abandoned.

It was a bad crash. The forum started getting goofy yesterday afternoon and it went downhill from there.

I am the onsite network administrator for my office. When things like this happen, I tell everyone it's because of sunspots. True or not - it buys me time . . . . VBG

Have the people in your office been screened?

That was the funniest thing I have read on the forum in the last 24 hours or so.

Seriously, I want to thank Dave and Lisa for being on top of this with IB.

So, this is the reason for the outage:



Picture taken by my friend Alexander Boos in October, 2003 during a time of high solar acticity. Right now, activity is close to zero, as can be seen here.

That was amazing, Raoul!

As for the forum, I suggest that anyone who made any posts on Thursday after 6 pm Eastern/3pm Pacific check to see if the posts are there. The board went down shortly after that, taking some recent posts with them (including a couple of mine).

I thought it was just me. I tried to get on unsuccessfully several times and thought upgrading my Explorer to 7.0 had something to do with it. Glad it's back!

Cheers, Neil

I thought it was me as well or maybe they had blocked the site from work. Glad we're back! Thank you, Dave, for letting us know.
