Ooops, sorry about that!

We started a server clean up process on Saturday evening having no idea it would take almost 24 hours to complete the task.  So, the forum being in maintenance mode for that time and not accessible was completely unexpected and not planned.   This was another software optimization in the hopes it reduces or eliminates the morning slow downs.

A thorough job was done and hope it was worth it!

Thanks for the effort. See you later this morning!

Well - it is up & running at a time when it would most likely have been down LAST week - so maybe it was worth it.....

If it stops the morning outages, it will have been worth it....but we all missed the forum while it was gone!
Let sleeping dragons be.......morning breath......need I explain?

Unfortunately I still keep getting timeout errors ("Temporarily unavailable" "Too much stress on the system"), and when it does work, it seems to respond at the same speed as always. So from my side of the screen it doesn't seem to have made any difference.
