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?

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.

I'm still getting mis-directed. Fortunately www.digitalbits.com does work.

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? Posted Image

Parker informed us everything should be OK now.
