A few of you might have noticed that the site was down for a bit earlier. Just FYI, Dreamhost (the web hosting provider I use) is/was apparently under a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack earlier today. It's back up now, but it's possible that it could go down again depending on the situation. Just wanted to provide some information so you guys know what's going on.

Sorry about the recent unexpected downtime this afternoon. I was trying to do a minor update to the forum software and it ended up breaking it instead. I rolled back to before I updated so we have a working forum again.

I'll just roll with the slightly older version of the forum until we get to a slow period (maybe during the bye week later in September).

Just FYI, there might be a bit of downtime tomorrow (12/7/17).

The VPS (virtual private server) that the website runs on is being upgraded to a newer version of Linux (Ubuntu). Shouldn't take more than an hour, but for a little bit, the site might be down.

I just tried it out on an iphone and it seems to be working ok for me. What OS and browser are you using and what is the "trouble" that it's having? Can you do a screenshot and post it or something?

Chrome on my IPhone 5 and it just says site can't be reached says it may be temporarily down or moved it seems to only do it for the certain titles.

ST, I think I am going to roll out a Summit League Tournament pick 'em bracket. If you want a couple extra ad revenue dollars, I will need a link somewhere on the site.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

We can do that. If you still have my email address, just send me the embed info or a link to the document/spreadsheet for it and I'll get it embedded.

Thanks.
