    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Ya, the forums were down too for a few minutes. I've never seen the main site go down but they're most likely doing maintenance.

    I had a problem with posting and now it seems to okay.

    Got an error when posting a reply (ispCP Omega Error 500 /newreply.php Internal Server Error!) and thought it was PC Firewall Tools Plus that I just installed a few minutes prior.

    Cheers for the heads up, have pinged Tim (MA) on this in case he is unaware of this, likely they do know and are working on it now, could be anything, maintanence, part of internet backbone out to a server at the datacenter crash.

    Hi Bigtrucks,

    Well the hardware maybe back up but next would be re-installing software and recovering the backup database for the software listings, then some tests, so not a quick thing if wanting to do it right, so while IT WORKS! its not finished just yet.

    This is a good lesson for everyone, it's not if a HDD fails, just a matter of when. Do those backups folks!;)

    LOL erm... In medical terms that would be discontinuation syndrome for some.

    The upcoming DSM V would probably include "internet addiction" to it's arsenal, so we still have got a few years to escape from that label until that DSM V comes out. :-D

    Thanks for the update Halo.
