This evening, our site experienced some down time. This was not a scheduled event, and we apologize for the disturbance in your forum habit. It appears our host had some unexpected issues, and it affected some sites. We have been working behind the scenes trying to fix the issue, but are now waiting for the host to finish some work.

When the site was down my curiosity was sparked regarding the site domain.

A check of the WHOIS database shows the site in the name of a guy named David Sasai, Torben is still listed as the e-mail contact, its registered with a german company and expires two months almost to the day. Once you click on the attached image file just click on it one more time to open it up to full-size and the data can be read.

Just a heads-up to the tech department. Looks like a there's a lot of updating that needs to take place so the domain isn't lost.

I've used namebargain.com (owned by Register.com) for a number of domain registrations. They just raised their price to I think $9.28 per year of registration. Transfering a domain can sometimes be a nightmare, but at least it'd be registered in the U.S..

and not with someone who just goes up snatching domain names to direct traffic to their forum which is completely unrelated to the domain name...:rolleyes:

No worries mate. Beleive me, the plan for the updating of the site, has been addresssed, is in motion, and will be smoothly.

Well... after a few hours of late night debugging (which looking at code is not my expertise), in this case the system failed and I was trying to find the bug. :( I believe the conclusion was that the host had an issue, and the server which hosts our site quit functioning properly, particularly affecting MySQL. They claim they were up and running, but the error code i was getting was pointing fingers at them. A few more screams...and whala...site was back up.

We had the forum portion working, but the home page was affected, but it's all good now.

It only took about 4-5hrs of looking at code, over 600 emails with bugs, and a few strands of hair were lost.

My friends thanks for the accolades, but we pull together as a board. Leah also offered feedback and helped out. When it came down to it, pushing a few buttons is all that was done.

Letting me be part of this community, and being called friend (which is why I joined in the first place) is more than I could ask for. Looking forward to many rides this year.
