For all you folks who got this rude notice when you tried to get in here yesterday, we had a Ning meltdown. According to their blog, they lost some .php files that run access to their sites. We were not the only ones affected and they say it had nothing to do with the transition to pay status.
We're back up and running today, but there are still some groups closed for maintenance (Eighties and the Experts Only) in particular. As I get them updated, they will return and then I should only have the 90s and 2000s left. As uaual, I will notify all group members of both their closure and re-open status.
Ha! Yours and mine both!
