The forum was down for a day after a php update was made to the server and some tweaks were made. Don't ask what the tweaks were because that's not my role at all. The technical server stuff is just not my game. But, after these changes were made we were unable to access the forum while the rest of the site was working just fine. Obviously it's working now but I don't know if it's temporary or not or if testing a fix is happening right now. In either event I wanted to jump and leave a message as to what was taking place.
What you do in the dark will someday come to light.
