    You probably noticed hipforums went down several times over the last few days. This was due to hardware issues on our server. The server has been replaced, but there is still going to be another downtime when they update the software on it.

    Thank you for your patience while we update our server.

    Damn! The same issue recurred with the new server, so it's most likely the HDs and controller (which they moved over from the old server). So they're going to have to replace those tomorrow.... That will proabably take a couple of hours...

    Also, the server is likely to crash again before that happens.

    No escape for me this weekend! :(

    You need to make more posts before you can get into the chat. It still says "guest" under your name. I forget how many posts you need to make, maybe 20 or 30.
