I have restored a backup of my site due to software issues with the operating system and server applications that run this website. Please be aware there may be downtime in the next few days as I sort these issues out.
This weekend I plan on reformatting the operating system that controls this site, in order to start fresh.
Any data posted to this site between 10/28/2018 and 10/29/2018 may be permanently lost due to restoring the backup.

In order to make the rebuild easier, I have switched over the nameservers from self-served to being hosted by my hosting provider Linode. This change may take up to 48 hours to propagate, ahead of my planned reinstallation of my server's operating system.

While getting ready to perform the maintenance I have noticed that the Bugzilla is down due to Perl errors. This will be repaired too. Please note this forum will be going down shortly in order to avoid losing data during the backup and restore operations.
