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.

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!

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.

Thanks for the update Halo.
