Just so everyone knows what's going on, I'm fully aware of recent performance issues. I'm in discussions right now with the server administrator to improve the situation. This may involve another server change. If it does, I'm pushing for late Friday afternoon or Friday evening in order to have the least impact on everyone and give us a fairly quiet weekend on the world running scene to let things fully work themselves out.
This is just a heads up that things are being worked on and we may go through some changes this weekend that may affect the forums (I may suspend all posting during the changeover so we can be assured that no posts get lost) and potentially the rest of the site. As the plans become more solidified, I'll make official announcements that will explain what is going on and what that will mean for you.
As always, thanks for your understanding. Nobody wants to put this all behind us more than me.
