    Forum Downtime

    All Z8ers,

    As you've probably noticed, the website has be up and down over the past few weeks. Short story: the web host had a major technical failure, and they've been having to restore all of their client's sites. It's a bit of a one-at-a-time process, and we are just one of many, which is why it took so long. Once restored, there were still some lingering issues, which we've been resolving this morning.

    Everything "should" be back to normal, but I'm working with Andrew and a few others on a new plan going forward, which should make the site more resilient to such failures.

    Anyway, welcome back online, and know that we're working to prevent such downtown going forward.

    Thank you Rifle, I so appreciate all your help, it's so annoying and frustrating to be on the far side of the globe, literally, and find that I'm powerless to do anything.

    As a little plug for my own Instagram account, for any of you who are on Instagram, and wonder where I am, you can follow along the adventure on @andrewmacphersonofficial

    Thanks for all the appreciation, but it's really my go-to tech super-wizard, Brad who is working behind the scenes. I understand the overall plan/structure, but without Brad, I'd be bumbling around trying to so the actual changes.
