    Anyone have any idea what caused the problems with the forums this afternoon? Just out of curiousity.

    Nope, I couldn't post or view online members or my PM's; I could however, browse the forums. I wander if someone tripped over a lead somewhere :rolleyes: ?

    I was going to blame W's computer again, but the problem was still there when I got to work. If I understood the error message properly (which I probably didn't), there was a failure to load some of the files.

    No idea, but it does answer the question of why nobody was responding to Schrodinger's Cat's PMs. :biggrin:

    He doesn't seem to have posted anything since, so... maybe.

    The problem started around 6:30 am EST. It was extremely frustrating....worse than the site being completely inaccessible.

    On a related note, is Greg okay ? Hasn't been so much as a blip from him lately.

    That sucked...:cry:

    I, at first, thought it was just me but then I noticed that, for some reason, Hootenanny (who was, at the time, helping me with a homework assignment) kept logging in and out. I found that strange so I looked over each of the folders and realized that the last post was made at about 6AM which was odd because, what with how many people were on, no one appeared to be posting.

    Just restarted apache and everything went back to normal. As for me, this time of year is really busy for me.

    Tell me about it I started getting withdrawl symptoms after an hour or so; sitting in the corner rocking back and forth mumbling to myself with the lights turned off.
