It is down, for around 24 hours now, with no real indication of when it will be back up, just a cryptic message; We are trying to solve a major problem, unfortunately we do not have estimated time when the forum will be back , nothing to do but wait it out I guess. It was throwing me some weird error message before the got that message up, something like "error has occurred loading settings" or some such.
