Servers issues – site stability

Update: Forums are back online.

We sincerely apologize for the issues this site has been experiencing recently. The server we are hosted on seems to have been having some problems and even though it apparently was supposed to have been back online 10 minutes ago, it obviously still has some major stability issues.

It really troubles us here to keep having us go through periods of unavailability, and we’re going to do whatever we can to get this resolved. Fortunately, our files are still intact (which wasn’t the case with our old host, GoDaddy… grrrr) so it should not mean that we’ll be offline for several hours like it was when we switched hosts just to get the site back up.

On a related note, the explosion in site traffic has caused us to yet again rethink our needs for server capability. While it may be a bad thing on its own, it’s because of how popular you the readers have made us so its your fault!!! Expect a better, faster TmoNews soon…
