Sucks, don't it? What am I suppose to do at work now?! :)

From the home page...

Unscheduled Downtime

NJ – December 7, 2005… Unfortunately, due to a chain reaction of hardware failures, we are currently off-line. We hope to have new hardware in place as quickly as possible to return to normal operation status shortly. Stay turned to this page for announcements and information as they become readily available.

Anyone else having problems recently? I can't even ping the IP addresses that correspond to forums.bimmerforums.com, but I can ping the IPs for www.bimmerforums.com

I'm not having a problem with other vBulletin boards.
