Since the last day or two our server has been under a DDOS attack, which is unlikely to be targeted against us specifically (usually it's some sort of political or religious difference of opinion). There are lots of sites on that server and we just got "lucky".
Right now it appears we are up and running -- and none of that had anything to do with the other issues of the forum (which supposedly are corrected). Those issues happened a few weeks ago when they updated their mail services and forgot to update the stuff that kept Access databases (like the ones that our forum use) working.
Let's keep our fingers crossed -- and we appreciate the patience all of you have had.
