      According to Mike, some sort of nonspecific technical problem. The IT guy got it figured out today.

        Hi All,

        Sorry, Davepet sent an email to me on Saturday that there were issues but I was sick in bed for four days and did not realize things were down until today. Our IT guy took a look and even contacted vBulletin directly today to address a few things. The vBulletin platform is not the best and is always full of bugs that can crash the database tables. Usually it is quickly resolved but the last 4 days have been a bit challenging. All is better now.

        Oct. 2005 felt lump but waited over 7 months.
