Something broke horribly in the site software, all the media content will not load. This may take some time to fix. Sorry for the inconvenience. We are planning on updating the website to take us out of the dark ages (2010) soon, so please bear with us.

Take your time and don't sweat it!!!
As other have said - thanks for all you do!

[this from someone who did have a heart attack after a week of really stressful website updating] - mind you, peoples livelihoods did depend on that one!]

I knew that I should not have clicked that strange icon.

Hey, thanks Duckk...

It was just a LITTLE disconcerting when the site threw an error when I tried to access it yesterday.

At least we have the content now!

Just out of curiosity: Did the issues arise DURING the "upgrade" or is the issue the "final straw" that's now motivating you to DO the upgrade?

Hopefully the former and not the latter!

Good luck with it...

As far as I can tell, it's completely spontaneous. There is indications of some malformed headers from a weird forum search, but it shouldn't have killed the whole site.

Site should be back up for everyone now. I am not sure what the webhost did but something borked the .htaccess files COMPLETELY for both the main site and the forums. :evil: I was finally able to recreate them and I am making backups now just in case. Please let me know if you have any other weirdness or if something is not working right! :ugeek:

Thanks!
