Sorry about the unexpected downtime! Our server admin found something that needed to be fixed. Page loading should actually be a little quicker now - though the difference will be so small, we probably won't notice it. However, the change puts less strain on the server...

For a minute there I thought some ad from India might be causing the lockup. :)

You guys are doing great. Your performance is much better than another forum I frequent.

Thank you. The problem was actually a two-pronged server attack. One via email bombing, and another via another route. The only reason the problems were as short-lived as they were is because we have somebody watching the server who handles these types of things for a living. In other words, somebody (or some people) don't realize how much I spend to keep this place up and running.

The problem SHOULD be resolved. If it happens again, please let me know.

Thanks again!
