Server Problems!
#1
Sorry for the down time...our server got bombed by web crawlers and registered over 100,000 hits in under 8 hours! That caused the slow downs and the offline status.

I'm working with the host to prevent this from happening again, but if it does, don't worry, we'll be back! I might have to move to a dedicated server!

Stay tuned!

Too much truth in that statement to be funny Roy.

Thanks Barry for all that you do for us!

Yeah, crawlers are good and bad. Good in that it helps page rankings but bad because they hog up connections to the forum! I could turn off spider bots but then we'd probably never get any new members!

We'll be good to go in a few days!
