I know I just tried too. And I am not on my computer so I dont have the new URL bookmarked. I tried coloradoshooting.com and there is no link the the new forums there.

Do you have the new forums bookmarked?

I didn't put a link to the ar15 discussion board on the Colorado Shooting site. I wanted them to have their own identities. But I'll work on it.

The "old" MSN site is at:
www.co-ar15.com

or directly:
groups.msn.com/ColoradoAR15ShootersSite/_whatsnew.msnw?pgmarket=en-us

The new discussion boards are at:
coloradoshooting.org/ipw-web/bulletin/bb/index.php

The "old" MSN site has been very stable. I'm hoping when I get the new one up it will be as good or better.

Both appear to be up now.

I just got this email...

"Dear Valued Clients,

Yesterday evening at approximately 7:15 PM Eastern Time, the Baltimore Electric Company, BG&E ordered that all power be shut down within our Network Operating Center building while technicians made repairs to power lines that were damaged due to a fire. This action was completely unexpected an unplanned. Our system administrators and technical staff had no choice but to execute our emergency shutdown plans immediately. They brought all servers offline and shut them down in an orderly manner. BG&E would not allow our UPS or Backup Generator to be in operation during the repairs, to assure the safety of their technicians."

There's more. But you get the idea. (Personally I think this is dumber then dirt.)

I agree it does sound like a dumb excuse for some down time. But my dad does that stuff for a living (repairing powerlines) And he gets so mad at us IT people all the time for leaving our battery back ups on when they ask us to shut them down. He says when they connect that stuff together it is like a giant arch weld and I guess when they do it at night he says it will light up about 1/2 block radius because people didnt turn off all their lights and what not like they were asked. So anytime they are doing repairs on the lines I try to take my servers off line. Of course they arent connected to the internet either so it doesnt impact that many people.

Just my .02 and thought I would put that out there for my dad because he makes sure to bitch at me anytime he has to do offices with alot of computers or something.
