    Think I found the problem but it is going to require taking the site down for about 30 mintutes to an hour to fix. Probably do it late tomorrow night.

    I did a little work last night to 'help' the problem, but I still need to shut the site down and make some changes tonight.

    Please post here any problems you experience. If you could include the exact time you saw the problem, that would be very helpful.

    Also, if you were having problems I would appreciate when you notice things working better

    Thanks Mike. I think we corrected the major issue.

    Please everyone continue to let us know if you notice any problems with the site!

    Once again I must apologize for the site being out most of this morning. This one was 100% MY FAULT!

    I had to make a small fix that should have taken a couple of minutes. I set my alarm and got up at 1:30 am, put the site in "maintenance mode", made the fix and tested it. Then I went back to bed without putting the site back online :-(

    As you can see it is back now and working fine.

    The main reason we are seeing so many problems recently is that we have outgrown the resources on our current servers. Normally we would just upgrade to a server with more resources, but that takes a lot of time and effort. Since we are almost finished with a major upgrade to the site that should be ready in about a month and is already running on a new more powerful server, we are trying to keep our focus on that project and keep the existing site running right where it is in the meantime.

    Again, sorry for the outage last night and this morning. It is one thing when the site goes down for reasons beyond our control, but I really hate when it goes down because of my error!

    No worries, glad you were able to get things cleaned up.

    I can't wait to see the new sight.

    I hope this isn't taken out of your pay.

    Once again I must apologize for the short outage that just occurred. We had a few things that had to be done that required the site to go off line. Do to a total screw up in calculating time zones we did it 6 hours later than we planned.
