Hi all!

The server had a power failure last night, which is why the forum was down for so many hours. It has also been down for part of the morning, too!  I don't know what's going on, but it has nothing to do with mailboxes or what's on the front page of the forum.

Bianca, the server is sort of like a computer that this forum (and hundreds of other forums for SMF) sit on, which is manned by the owner and founder of the website.  We have nothing to do with the server, can't see it, can't monkey around with it when it is screwed up and simply have to wait for the techs to take care of any issues with it. Lately, it has been VERY tempermental and has been screwing up a lot. That has been a BIG cause for concern. 

As for the widgets, we paired down all but the ones that we really need - BBC & National Geographic, so hopefully the forum page loads a bit faster. The only way to make the page load quickly all the time would be to cut down on the number of forums on the page, which were are loathe to do cause a lot of them have been requested by people and are added to pretty regularly. 

We are probably going to open another Atlantis forum pretty soon so you have a place to post when this one is down. It looks like it will be a neccessity! We will post the address here when it's available, which will be in a day or two. Other than that, I guess the only thing to do is be patient, people.   

Have a good day, all!  And sorry about the problems!  It has been frustrating to us, too!
