    AFAIK, both are hosted by the same company? Screw up!

    Glad to see that I wasn't the only one, although I do find it somewhat it annoying that I can't get to the bits.

    I glanced at the FAQ and didn't see anything relevant. Care to be a bit more specific?

    "I believe it's spelled FAQ."

    Oh, you say it with a Boston accent.

    Very strange. The Digital Bits can still be accessed via their alternate URL www.digitalbits.com, however.

    Edit +25 mins: both addresses are now functioning as usual.

    it was probably just a simple DNS A record gone awry.

    I thought it was fairly common knowledge that the HTF and TDB were on the same server.

    The forum went down yesterday for me while I was browsing it and at the same time, the digital bits showed as being the Flash/non Flash intro page for the HTF.

    I'm actually surprise that this is the only thread that resulted from it.

    Yes, we are on the same server. There was a serious server problem. While it was being solved, apparently the DNS pointed to the wrong site for some time.
    Scary, isn't it? [​IMG]
    Parker informed us everything should be OK now.

    No not just you. Part of the time we were also effectively down.
