Yep. Down.

Charlie hypothesized that the DNS didn't get updated when they broke the site earlier this week.

Oh, Horrors. No one to talk to tonight but the tractor pull at the county fair across the street.  :o

I'm sure its related to all the changes this week; most likely they just didn't set something on the server.

Alas, there is nothing that we can do about it at this point in time. There is no way to reach anyone at Group Builder this late on a Sunday night.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

It would seem that our hosts have once again made changes to things without telling the staff. The old chat only seems to work if one has an IRC client. The web version is not working tonight. So we'll have to use the new chat system that we were transitioning to anyhow. It can be found by clicking the "chat" tab at the top of the forum or by using the following link. new chat.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!

Odd. When I quote it, it just says:
[url=null]new chat.[/url]
And when I click on it, nothing happens.

(obviously I found it, just odd that the link in your post didn't work for me)

A special note to those using Mac's and iPad's to connect with the chat system: It seems that the web browser Safari has some issues with this new chat system. Scrolling doesn't work properly when one uses Safari to connect. So until further notice, I would recommend that those on Mac's and/or iPad's obtain a copy of Google Chrome to use with the chat system.
Alan,

Take care and take trains!
