    I've not been able to get onto Notebookforums.com (aka talknotebooks.com) today. Anyone know if they are down?

    neither can i, gives me a DNS error. Believe me, whoever the webmaster is there will be pulling their own hair out...dealing with web servers, databases and hosting providers can be a nightmare at times, and when your site is down you just want to throw stuff and say bad words.

    I feel their pain right now [V]

    OK, I wanted to make sure it wasn't just me. I noticed it was going a little slow, last night. I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not...

    Yep it's down and they are surely going insane! Ahhh, the glories of messed up DNS or downed servers.

    I e-mailed on the the employees of pctorque (notebookforums.com) and they are having server problems...here is what they said:
    Yes, they have been down since about noon yesterday due to a server issue, unfortunately. It is being worked on, but it may take as long as until early tomorrow morning to have everything back up and running. We apologize for the down time - it has been very frustrating! Of course, if you need us at any time, we are still available via email and phone.
    Thanks for your patience and concern.

    That sucks...I really do feel for them. It's one of the worst feelings ever. We've even seen a few PDA sites wiped out recently because of data loss.
