    site downtime


    Due to circumstances beyond my control linuxforums.org has been intermittently unaccessable during the last 2 or 3 days. It looks like it was a problem with one of the routers at the datacenter where the server is hosted.

    Fingers crossed it should all be fixed now

    Sorry for any inconvienence caused.

    Me, too.

    They probably had some cattle trample the fiber backbone.

    (Note: I am in no way Texan-bashing and have no delusions that all Texans are cowboys. Just making an opportune joke. Feel free to bash Georgians whenever something like this happens in GA. Oh wait...we aren't advanced enough here to have datacenters...)
