    Default Updates to our Community

    Hi Folks,

    Tomorrow, November 2, 2008, around 8:00 a.m. CST, we will be making some changes and doing some updates that will require us to turn off the forum for approximately one hour. During that time if you try to visit the forum you may experience a blank page or get a 404 'page not found' error. No worries, we will be back online shortly.

    Thanks for being a part of the OrchidTalk community!

    Cheers,
    BD

    And now an update to the update: we're making the changes even earlier than expected. These fixes will help make our underlying system more secure and some of you may even notice a speed increase when we're through.

    As BD mentioned, the "Forum Closed" message will alternate with your browser displaying a 404 Not Found error for a while; this is part of the maintenance process and no reason to be alarmed. When you see the forums opened again, you will know that maintenance is complete.

    We will begin in about 15 - 20 minutes.

    Thank you all again for being here!

    LOL. If that stuff grew that fast, you had better start looking for somewhere else to live. It will soon take over.

    I hope everyone enjoys the little boost in speed. I know I am!
