Why was the website down for two days?

Site Outage Explained...

Sorry folks. The site was down for two days due to a bad riser board on my server. It's an older HP LPR rack mount server and they are far and few between for spare parts.

I managed to find a spare at a local scratch and dent supply store, so all is well now.

If you have an extra LPR server sitting around anywhere, I could use an extra riser board and a power supply. With those two parts, I will have a complete hot spare server that I can get us back up sooner if this happens again. Let me know and I will give you my address for shipping.

Thanks everyone. And again, sorry for the outage!
