There's alot of strange postings, but I'm sure they'll be cleaned out soon.

Sorry all... I take complete responsibility for the month plus outage. My company moved datacenters, and in the process took on a major security audit and network hierarchy overhaul. The end result was the need for me to re-visit this forum's source code to figure out exactly where it was breaking when running on the new server that it was assigned to.

Without getting into too much technical detail, between worrying about the overall move, security audit, getting my clients squared away, etc. it took quite some time for me to also finally get to the bottom of the mystery of why code that has worked flawlessly in this custom implementation of the Snitz forums wasn't working in the new datacenter. Ultimately, I had to extract the method used to block certain IP addresses, domains, etc. for banned users, re-write it as a service, and have that service running at the access point to our network's DMZ. Until I extracted that process and repositioned it in the network no one was getting access to the forums as the code previously stood (that is in this new network).

Anyway, that is probably more detail than most of you cared to hear, but sufficed to say, I'm glad we were able to finally get to the bottom of it, as I had been investigating much more drastic moves, such as migrating all the users and content from this custom implementation of the Snitz forum to some other messaging forum. (Sigh of relief!)

Very glad to see you back.
I made it through the Cold War without seeing a "Communist Behind Every Tree" as the saying used to go.
But, when you went down and then Mr. Camp's site became difficult if not impossible to access, I started to wonder if I was getting paranoid.

I feel better now

Matt, thank you for all of your hard work. It is appreciated, and now perhaps I can stop my excessive drinking caused by withdrawal. George

Server upgrades are always fun aren't they Matt.

Glad you finally got it sorted out, and congrats on the other stuff that Evan posted about.

Man I've missed my daily visits to this place. Welcome back!

Thanks Matt for all the hard work. I'm happy to see this site back up and running. It was sorely missed. Glad to hear all went well with Mojo's surgery during the down time too. Arvinator, are you going to tell us what has changed "in a great way"? Kinda feels like a family reunion now that the site's back up.
