We apologize for the recent extended board down time. The web host companyís servers were down, knocking our site off the internet. We made numerous and repeated efforts over the weekend and through this morning to determine the status. You are never provided with adequate explanations. However, the host company site indicated that they experienced a fire in one of their main centers. As a reminder, please visit the boardís Facebook page for updates in the event the board is down. Thank you.

WG / Charlie - Thanks for the updates. As others have noted there does seem to be an issue with the board being down other than this time. I can only speculate if the hosting entity has appropriate backup measures in place. Perhaps consideration needs to be made regarding a change.

I believe the issues logging on have been eliminated or greatly reduced. However, if anyone has any related issues, please let us know on this thread. If you cannot get on the board, please let us know through our Facebook page. Thanks.

Great! Yes over the last few months I havenít heard anymore issues regarding login problems.

As Robbbs said, if you cannot access the board, you can always send a PM via our Facebook page and one of the moderators will get back to you.

We've been advised by the web hosting firm that they are converting to a different server system and to expect intermittent board downtime over the next month, particularly late at night and on the weekends.
