Some of you may have noticed that the forum was down on Saturday (And possibly Friday and Thursday too). My *fantastic* hosting company jacked up the permissions on /home/ which, in turn, stopped ALL websites from running on that server. So not only was this awesome message board down, but so was my motorsports business site, drinkingweather.com, my main takuban.com site, and many others. And any other person that was unfortunate enough to be on that server was screwed too.

I keep toying with the idea of switching hosting companies. The problem is that I know there will be issues at just about every place out there. Also, I don't pay a lot for the hosting. So wherever I go, it will likely cost more. And before you start saying it, I already know that "You get what you pay for". I tell that to people all the time. The trouble is finding the sweet spot (how much crap I'm willing to put up with / how much money I am willing to pay).

Anyway, It's possible most of you guys didn't even notice it was down. I just thought I'd post what happened.

I noticed it down as well. Admittedly I'm mostly a creeper, probably like a lot of other people. Work got busy again so free time is near nil.

I noticed, and figured something got messed up server-side. Well, now I know.

Heh. Yep. Not sure what the hosting company employee was doing when they messed it up. But at least it's fixed now.
