We are back with the exception of the retarded wiki, which is still being transferred. :)

Hmm, haven't I been around long enough to be a Gibberling yet? Looking at the list, I remember all those people, so I'd say that I have!

I think I currently exist in some sort of Fuxpacker limbo (I can do wickedness in the fixpack forums, but I'm not visibly part of the group).

Got a message from the host. Something went out on their end, either a power outage or a data center went down. I can't even access my CP right now, or any other website I happen to be hosting. It should be back up soon. This sucks I know, but at least we know it wasn't a G3 thing. :)

Heh, I knew those quick loading forums were too good to be true.

:( You've broken my heart. Away with you! *runs off crying*

The host seems to still be having "problems". If it's any consolation, when the site *was* working, the load times were extremely fast (on my end anyway).

Maybe tonight (PST) it will be back up.

At least G3 comes up again now, still getting a server error for the forums.

It was really fast while it lasted yesterday!  ;)

Hmm now I can access the forums but when i click onto a thread it just goes to a blank white screen.

During their outage and after some of their sites weren't working. I had them just restore the backup of our database from when we were first back. In the process, some posts were lost, though I'm not sure why, as the backup was made after many of yesterday's posts were made.

I love the "anything you might have done that may have caused the error".  Translation: What the hell did you do to f%$& this up?

I especially love it when no page data gets sent and it finishes loading with a blank page. So useful!

Some people may experience slow load times or are not able to access G3. The host apparently is experiencing a network outage today, whatever that means...should be up within a few hours if not within the day.

Likely so. There were quite a few non-deleted spam posts this morning - could well be the reason.

I can't believe a single spammer managed to bring down a sizable website. I think it was even the same username who's been spamming the site for days if not weeks (yes, just one, judging from all the rubbish new post notifications I got in my inbox). How hard is it to block someone from posting Russian gibberish on a forum? Decent forum software should be able to prevent it from happening in the first place.

"Suspended" sounds like non-payment of fees for the site. Especially as it is coming from an outfit called Dot5 Hosting.
If it is spam, all they need to do is disallow posting until it is fixed.
