Some of you may have noticed that we've experienced an outage today. For some of us, that outage is over. For others of us, including @highlander, the forum is still not accessible. The hosting provider had a DNS (domain name server) problem, and the fix has been implemented, it just needs to fully propagate before everyone will be able to access the forum again. That should take about 6-8 hours. I don't claim to fully understand this--I'm just an Unfrozen Caveman Forum Admin, your "DNS issues" frighten and confuse me--but that's what's going on.
If you are in contact with other members who are not able to access the forum, please let them know to keep checking periodically and they should be back on soon.
