    Forum Outage
    Hey All,

    A short while ago Mac-Forums came back from a very extended outage. This outage was due to my error when I was fixing the DB server Mac-Forums is hosted on.

    I am duely sorry for the outage and hope that everyone understands!

    Have a good time!

    Glad to have the site back up! Oh well, errors happen all the time, and it's very easy to do when messing with web stuff.

    I was going through serious separation anxiety! I can't tell you how many times I do the "Get New" throughout the night. Pretty sad I guess, but I am definitely glad to see the forum back up!

    Well, Keep in mind next time, you can always visit the IRC chat otherwise there is a temporary board here. I will take it offline in an hour or so, but just so a few people see it so they remember for next time.
