We're scheduled for some Forum Maintenance this coming Sunday night (3/11/07) and the Forum will be closed for (hopefully) a short period. This is step one of a long overdue software upgrade.
I'm not sure of the time at the moment, but I'd quess it would be after 9 pm EST.
For people using the chat area - I don't think that will be affected, (knocking wood here - ) except if server has to be restarted, but there may be no link to get there, so you may want to bookmark that now.
Hopefully this will go smoothly and quickly. Thanks in advance for your understanding.
