  • May 11th - New POW
  • April 29th - Forums are back up!
  • April 26th - Many of you have emailed me to let me know the site is down. Thanks! :) Apparently, on top of exceeding the bandwidth that was alloted to us (four times!), we managed to take down their entire Apache web server. This server hosted several of their clients, and as a result we have decided to create a seperate web server just for us. I am not sure how much this will cost yet, but it has to be done, so I told them to go ahead. This process should take a couple days, so I'd like to ask everyone to be patient because in the end it will be worth the wait. Hopefully we wont have these issues anymore - I consider them growing pains as a result of migrating to the new site. We didnt realize just how much bandwidth the forums would require, and now we pretty much do (looks like around the 20GIG/month mark!!! WOW, thats a lot of text!). So hang in there, we'll get this sorted out shortly.
  • April 18th - "Bandwidth Limit Exceeded..." Welp, we did it again. That means we went over 10 GIGABYTES of data transmitted this month!! Please be patient, the forums will be up again soon. I am working it out with the ISP.
