      Yup. The forums are down because they are on another server, and I’ll have to move that stuff over this weekend as well. The good news is, all I have to do is move the database, everything else is ready to go.

    “Normal” being one of those subjective concepts, it should be noted. ;)

    If you lost all of the Hero Histories, would matthew have needed to start from scratch? or does he have all of them saved?
    When is the next Hero History coming out?

      The hero histories aren’t part of the forum, so there was no concern about losing those…

      Depending on whether my internet provider continues to be eeeeevil our not, we could have one in the next two weeks.

    I’m rejoicing to have the site back… there’s only so much Overheard in New York I can read before craving news of pure geekdom.

    I am glad that the site is back! When I was on my second deployment I was having major comic book withdrawl and then I stumbled upon this site and when I could get on here it made my days better. Now that I am back in the states for good I am on here everyday or close to it!

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
