I want to apologize to everyone for the forum being down.
Over the last month, things have been going wacky, and its basically because the severs are overloaded with so much action. Thats a good thing! I had to move the forum to a more dedicated server. Or my hosting company did, which is a great company, very patient with all the problems.
When the forum crashed, I was at the hospital and my hands were tied. My grandmother had a stroke and is about to pass away, so I just had to turn the forum off until I could get it up and running.
It had to be restored to April 27th, so anything posted after that is gone.
If you are missing images etc... Im sorry they may or may not be back.
I had two options, either run the forum with no image uploads and attachments or upgrade it to the new server. I did not see how we could have a forum and not see lots of photos of the cute pups!
I still need to do some maintenance work, although I dont know when. Im packing up my house and studio and getting ready to move to Idaho. The drive across country depends on the timing of my Grandmothers death. Needless to say the next week or two will be swamped for me.
SO thats what is going on with the forum and with me. If you all encounter any problems, please let me know. I will try to respond right away, but I am currently trying to not lose my mind.
