Hi fellow goats and bassheads around the world.
We live in a complex world where a butterfly can flap its wings in one corner of our planet and cause knock-on consequences far and wide.
As you will know, we had been experiencing a few hardware related problems which resulted in the need for a new server which we were patiently waiting for.
Unfortunately, at the worst possible time a little butterfly flapped its wings in the far east where we were hosted which then caused some difficulties for our host's ISP.
The ISP decided to cut off its services to our host which means that DB9 is currently in limbo. A new server is very much useless if it's not connected to the Internet.
Not unusually for a site such as this, we're now looking for a new host. Finding suitable hosting is not easy and as you will all appreciate, making the right decision is the most important thing.
We now have a new server on order which should be in place before the weekend!
Naturally, we're really sad at this downtime and realize that a lot of the site's members will be suffering from chronic bass depletion which as we all know is a fate worse than death.
For this we send you, the community, a million apologies. We didn't mean to let you down.
We are not supermen but as you know, we are super goats and we will be back as soon as possible!
