Thanks Rick or Mike, resubbing the site shows intent to it it going even though things are quiet.

Amazing :thumbsup:

I was almost sure everything was lost forever. We have to keep it alive and kicking, guys.

Thank you for the kind words. I will continue to be away from the site for a while, but I am handing over some of the board duties to CRB who is quite capable of taking care of things. In the interim, I will also be performing updates on the site software to keep things up to date and secure.

I am a little confused about the comments stating that it is good to see the site back up. It was never down. Did anyone who experienced an outage receive 503 message? If so, that may have been due to our site security software.

I found that I was blocked from the site recently as well when trying to access the main Wordpress page as well as trying to access the site from my iPhone. I had to upgrade to the latest version of our security software and install new signature files and make a few other small tweaks, but until then, it may have appeared that the site was down to some.

Hi Rick,

Yes, for about a week I got the holding page with a message, something like: "Can the admin contact the hosting company". Normally get that when the subscription for the hosting has lapsed?

I saw the same and had the horrible feeling that the site was gone.

So glad to see that is not the case. This is a great resource and many great people on it.

Same here. I'm glad it's back and that Rick was able to make CRB a mod. Thanks Rick! That should really help things out.
