Forum was down?

Postby Famspear » Tue Dec 02, 2014 3:06 am

It is now about 8:06 pm Central time on Monday, Dec. 1, 2014. For me, the Quatloos forum had been unreachable since Sunday night, until just a few minutes ago. Did anyone else have this problem?

I was unable to access it for about the same length of time.

I was unable to access it all morning on Monday, gave up around noon, tried just now at 9:30 PM.
Google couldn't even find the URL.
I wonder if the admin could post an announcement on another website (such as Fogbow) to let us know when something like this happens.

I don't think it's a coincidence that the forum was taken down shortly after Deep Knight posted an expose of the Illuminati.

Possible, but I think the real non-coincidence is that the forum went down within 3 minutes of Rob Menard posting his suspiciously now-deleted 7-paragraph, video-accompanied apology for his antics. :snicker:

Seriously, though, a sincere thanks to the person or people who keep the forum up and running.

It would appear to have been down almost all day.

I want to add my thanks to all those who work to keep this forum operating.

It was either 13 hours of silence to pay hommage to the Illumina Lunar Moneyday, or our ISP decided to unilaterally and arbitrarily change an obscure setting that screwed up our DNS.

This is the first time I've been able to get on since Sunday night, after talking to Fam. He broke it.
Thanks for getting it back up.

I think I'll go with ISP screwing up a setting since I got on last about 7 Sun night and then ya'll been gone til now. Still seems a bit cranky truth be told.
The fact that you sincerely and wholeheartedly believe that the “Law of Gravity” is unconstitutional and a violation of your sovereign rights, does not absolve you of adherence to it.

Just to clarify, my comment about Menard's "apology" was strictly a conspiracy theory joke, and NOT based on any actual facts. I can't figure out how to edit or delete it so please accept my apologies down here.
