    All,
    Some of you may have experienced the Forum going down. Thank UPSed and "J" for the alert.
    I contacted Go Daddy and they were able to get it back up, having something to do with the MSQL Database.

    This may have been an attempt to Virus the site per Go Daddy's suggestion, so I added this morning a Go Daddy partner called Site Lock which now scans the site every 24 hours and protects us from potential threats.
    It's an additional cost, but my commitment to taking care of imtbtrails and the brotherhood and sisterhood we have.

    Tell a friend . . . Mikie cares!

    I saw that... I got the database error. I figured it wouldn't last long. :)

    I think I "lost" a couple thanks... I thanked J's video this morning, but it was gone after the outage. Maybe I thanked mid crash? Hopefully, nothing more serious was affected.

    Thanks Mikie,

    I've grown really fond of this site (And the people!), and one of the quicker ways for a community like this to die is for the admin to abandon it (see: STR). I <3 dedicated admins, even if you wear Lycra on the trails :)

    I noticed a glitch when I was thanking his video this morning as well?????? :shock:
    "J" What's going on? The whole system stalled when I was trying to thank your post... ;)

    Y'know, a little side action may just strengthen one's relationship with IMTB. Go get a little taste of those OTHER forums and you'll come running back to the safety and familiarity of your friends!

    At least, that's one theory.
