It's issues that eventually won't be an issue. It happens.

I'm pretty pumped you guys are back up.  Nice to be back at a place where if you write a thread one day, it will more than likely not be gone the next.

If it's the DNS2GO site, then yes, that's a known issue which will be resolved.  This should rarely happen; I've been working with this server for about 8 years, now, and it's been very reliable, in general.  We had significant downtime several years ago when a hard drive failed, but other than that, I can't remember another time when we had the kinds of problems we've had in the past few days.  Very bad luck, I'm afraid, and very embarrassing (despite a good many kind and patient remarks).

Once we can afford a dedicated server (or two), any downtime will probably be my fault.  I intend not to be at fault much.  :-)   Or, at any rate, if the server itself really is at fault, we'll be able to go yell at the people we're paying.  At the moment, we're hosted out of friendship on a normally-reliable box in someone's basement.  The good side of this is, I have root access, and have done a good deal of work configuring the system to my needs as an administrator.  But the arrangement has its limitations.

I just caught the server in the midst of locking up, and was able to fix the problem.
