In the early hours of this morning there was a small explosion outside the place where ProBoards' (our board providers) servers are kept. The explosion caused a power failure and, as a result, ours and many other message boards are temporarily offline.
We expect the board to be back online within the next few days but, initially, it will not be fully restored and may be missing data including posts and accounts/log in details. This will only be a temporary situation until ProBoards can restore the data from their backup servers.
For updated information see http://support.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=status&action=display&thread=244738
We apologise for this and if things aren't sorted out soon, we'll look into the possibility of getting a temporary alternative board just to keep things ticking over. In the meantime, you'll just have to find somewhere else to occupy yourselves... but what are we going to do?
UPDATE, June 2nd 2008: The board is now back online and working but currently missing the last two month's worth of data (posts, newly registered members' details, etc). Hopefully, this will be resolved soon.
