In case anyone was wondering, the site being down had nothing to do with the Chinese spammers that were recently attacking the forum. It was a problem with my web host affecting a bunch of their clients, and it's been fixed.

I'm pretty confident in saying I have the spammers beaten now. I put some powerful new anti-spam code in a few days ago, and since then they haven't posted a thing.

Thanks for all the work, Jason. Sorry you've had so much trouble lately. You probably needed all this like an ear infection. It's not as if you have nothing else going on in your life...:)

I just figured that everything up your way, server and all, had just froze up...and you were out looking for some wood for the stove and it would thaw out eventually...Maybe June or so. :)

Stay warm! Thanks!

The servers hosting this site are located in Chicago. Of course, most people would still call that a cold place. Compared to Fairbanks, though... ha ha HA HA ha HA ha ha HA HA HA ha ha HA ha HA HA HA etc...
