Hooray! It's back!

Did anyone else just experience literally the worst week of their life?

It was a sad situation, and I'm very grateful to the hardworking folks who brought the ADKForum back.

Thanks for your patience everyone. We have a great team of NumNum and Kyler working the backend. It was a major attack and we have recovered and have put some safeguards in place to reduce the possibility of a repeat but these days who knows.
We have also maxed out our allotment of memory for the sites, the main reason it is running much slower. We have decided to upgrade the service, but that is not cheap so keep those cards and letters coming we accept PayPal, Visa. Mastercard, beads, trinkets and promise never to be kept.

For a while there I thought Neil Young and Joni Mitchell had a hand in this.

I too wish to add my thanks to all the fine folks who brought the forum back to life. Can't imagine how frustrating it must be to have to fight off hackers and other neerdowells.

That's all for now. Take care and until next time...be well.

We are in the process of upgrading to the new server. Don't anticipate downtime, but if there is we'll be back, promise.
