We've had another little bit of downtime over the past day or so, largely due to a similar issue that happened last time. It works a little like this: our hosting company power-cycles our box, and when it comes back up, things don't start up like they're supposed to. Further complications this time arose from a networking issue which was out of our hands, but the end result is that the forums are back up and running now.
The blog hasn't been so lucky. We have backups this time around, but it's gonna take a day or so until those backups have been restored, and that's because of my own inexperience with the way we're running WordPress which is... unorthodox, to say the least.
I do apologise for the downtime, and for the lack of news posts. On the bright side, feel free to create your own topics in the forums and discuss things there, in lieu of actual news posts
