    We've been experiencing some instability so until I figure out the exact cause some features will be disabled off and on throughout the next few days. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Our IPMI card appears to be a culprit in the server's instability. It has been replaced.

    Obviously we have some kind of crisis, either soft of hard. Hopefully Greg will be able to deal with the problems soon. Fingers crossed Greg :smile:

    Thankfully the DB is on a seperate HD and is healthy. Maybe our 800,000 latex images are wearing down the web server HD :) Looking into getting it replaced ASAP.
