I've been having problems all day accessing Boardgame News.com. I've successfully loaded the site a couple of times, but mostly I keep getting various SQL and database errors. Anyone else having this problem, or is this just me? I would contact BGN directly, but obviously am not able to access them.

Thanks!

Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.

I saw most of those errors at some point or another, but I've had a lot of luck with just resubmitting or refreshing the page...

I deleted the stored cookie from boardgamenews.com, and that seemed to fix the problem....

Then again, maybe not. Can't get past the front page now.

Perhaps --as if in some low budget techno-coloured scifi from the mid 80s, destined to appear on Mystery Science Theater 3000-- Rick managed to infect his SQL server with a digital mutation of his own recently conquered virus...

All -

Yes, the site is indeed down. Sorry about this. The problem is with the hosting service. Yesterday was an American holiday so nothing got done, but they are there now and working on it. They told me they hope to have it fixed in a few hours.

Between my cold and this, well, let's say I've had better days!

- Rick
