    Site outage

    Sorry for the notice after the fact, but things should be back to normal. We're on a new server, so hopefully recent stability issues will be resolved with this move.

    The database was restored from a backup taken about 11pm PST, Thursday night Feb-12. If you posted anything after that, it was lost & you'll need to repost it.

    FYI, I've noticed some weirdness with our DNS A record bouncing between the old & new server IP addresses on various DNS servers (OpenDNS, Google, UUNET, etc). I'm looking into it, but you may experience connection issues until tis resolved.

    Reply here if you find issues or have questions.

    Re: Site outage

    There is an issue uploading images to the site. An image processing library missing on the new server. I've asked the server owner to install it, so uploads won't work until that's done. I'll update here when it's fixed. No ETA at present.
