Network Issue - Status and Summary

Update 12/6/2013
We sincerely regret the network outage and various related issues between 11/11 and 11/14.   Our contingency plans did not include an outage of this nature.  We experienced many additional issues while attempting to bring up the sites on a new temporary network.  Our sites had run in the old address space for more than 10 years!  Various IP addresses were hidden in many different places.  Most everything is stable now, but running a little slow.  If you are still experiencing any issues other than sluggishness, please let us know via email.

Earlier this week, we signed an agreement to move our servers into a state-of-the-art commercial data center.  This facility will sharply reduce any chances of failure or outages.  We are also increasing our bandwidth and upgrading our servers.  We will plan another significant outage between December 21 and December 31 at the time of the move.  It should take is 4-6 hours to move and reestablish all services.

Thank you again for your patience and using

Update 9:00 AM Central time - 11/14/2013
