Hey everyone,

Here's what happened. At some point, we got so active that we were putting too much load on the server for our hosting partner. So they suspended the account. They unsuspended it now and I have a few things I am going to be employing to bring the load down.

But, I apologize for the downtime.

Thanks.

Not when the site goes down. If it happens again, I am not too sure what we're gonna do.

After a bit of research and consulting with a few people, I believe that we've found out what did it.

"Google did it!"

It seems that they were trying to spider half of our 5,000 plus topics... all at once. I have disabled the code letting them in and won't be putting it back on until it is safe to do so.
