Hmmm? I'm not positive (I don't really know anything about setting up or maintaining a website or forum), but I think the times we've had outtages these last couple of months it has been the same problem reoccurring. I don't know what triggers it, though.

Several months ago, the forums were hacked and out-right attacked (they even altered the page to boast their attack on the site. But that isn't what we're seeing now, I don't think the site is going down because of malicious action.

However, it is possible the two are related. The attack(s) may be the underlying cause of the frequent crashes we're seeing now. Like I said, I don't know how it all works exactly.

Yea, their appears to be a corrupted file or structure to the webpage that is causing the crash for the last few times.

I think it may be just a case of of outdated software, as I have noticed that many of the other sites I visit have all done an update to their page interfaces over the last few months...

Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

Whereas these forums did some sort of roll-back after the second hack: as indicated by the Banner's reversion to the 4e logo and the "News" referring to old books.

Think you that a better betting pool will be how many days the forums are down for the rest of the year? My bid is 5.

Well this was way too optimistic. Lol.

Yes
The real question is whether it will go down, come back up, and then go down again before then.

Come back up in less than three days? No way

Well, it has better odds than a non-petnomancer TM against a decker in... pretty much anything.

Spooky, what do you do this pass? Shoot him with my thunderstruck gauss rifle. (Rolls)  8 hits. Does that blow his head off?
