Our friend JJ has been harassing Mr. Voy on our behalf, and he got a response!

Below is the message, verbatim, as it was sent to me from Freefallen:

We created a Facebook page to notify your communities of the downage, and provide updates:  https://www.facebook.com/VoyForums

Dear Freefallen,

There's been a network block on a large upstream provider, which they've been unable to resolve [yet].  In the meantime they've notified us that they are making progress.  The block was due to a network misconfiguration which resulted in the network being blacklisted and, even though the issue had been fixed, we're told, they haven't been able to get the listing removed.  They're a powerful and widely-used set of lists -- the end result being the block on the entire network which includes many California companies, organizations, and even govt. services.  We've never experienced such downtime in over 22 years of operation and are working with them to resolve it, but unfortunately it's largely out of our hands.  We're currently working on other alternatives to get notice up as well as forums for use.  Our systems are our own physical machines, located in facilities close to the internet backbone, so it's not as easy of a decision not action to move them elsewhere -- we've been remarkably stable with this company for many years.

I'm any case, the forums -- servers, software, and data -- are all actually fine, it's just this horrible network issue and, again, we're not the only ones affected.

We're very sorry for the problem -- we haven't experienced such a thing in over 22 years of our company's operation, and we thank you for bearing with us.

    That's potentially good news then. At least they're working on it, and haven't given up on hosting the service.
    But I guess it makes things a little tougher for you in the mean time? Juggling the site and the chatroom on the server?
    I assume Com will be really pleased too.
    Thanks for keeping us informed, Joe. 🙂

    This is working fine so it's not a problem. Well there is a problem for Com because he/we can't access the library but we can't have it all I guess. #paitience
