    I couldn't view it an hour ago or so, was there a server problem?

    Not that I'm aware of. It's been up for me for the past hour and a half.

    Last night I saw a downtime page, which was pretty slick actually.

    Can you guys describe the page you saw? Was it at a specific location, in terms of its URL?

    There was no planned downtime whatsoever, and there was no downtime page put up by anybody that has anything to do with the operation of this website. So I'm a bit baffled as to how one got up.

    Any details or specifications as to what you saw, what it said, etc. would be appreciated.

    I'm assuming this was the page: www.adminaddict.net/forum/maintain.png. None of us put that there, nor do we even know who designed it.

    We may have discovered a security breach. Thank you for bringing this to our attention; we are fully investigating the matter.

    That is it! Yeah! I thought it was a new feature, but you have a situation.

    Thanks for the info. Yes, something terrible did happen behind-the-scenes, and we were "hacked" (so to speak) by two of our very own members.

    Details will not be divulged.

    Oscar and Maya, nice names for some good looking perps!


    From now on if there are any problems on AA, they might be the playful ones behind the scenes. ; )
