    AND...we're back

    I cannot tell you all how much I apologize for the server issues that we've had over the past two weeks. Trust me...it is as frustrating for me as it is you. We are doing our best to get this all resolved asap. Thanks for sticking with us.

    Re: AND...we're back

    I was freaking out, I thought my work had decided to block the site. Thank goodness!

    Much like the Greg MacDermott situation I continue to hope but I am losing it little by little Chris.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Maybe you could make it up to us by making this site free?

    I did not know what to do with my day for the past 15 minutes! Is DG running the site now?

    Re: AND...we're back

    Chris, do these server issues happen to have any impact on the reason behind why my job blocked the "Forums" section? I was able to access them until last week and now I can access everything on this page except the "Forums" section. It is blocked by their filter now and per some suggestions on here I went to check out Hawkeye Nation and a few other boards and am able to access their "Forums" just fine. Wasn't sure if there was something changed when you had your server issues that would trigger a filter now?

    Not sure. Do you happen to work for Nationwide? I know that they blocked us because too many people were logging on during the day.

    Re: AND...we're back

    Do these problems related to the slow down in site access I have seen recently?

    It seems that the main page always loads fine, but about 50% of the time I am getting alot of lag when trying to load posts.
