Yup, I lost connection to NG just before midnight NY Time. Was not connecting for over 40 minutes. Then was up and down a bit - and now it seems to be up - for now.
Was it just a coincidence that this happened exactly at the start of 4/1/09?
I think the best part about all of this is the conspiracy theories that the mods are messing with us - and this is all a precursor to the BBS's being shut down.
Yeah, right. I'll believe it when I see it. It may go down today as a sick joke, but I doubt the Fulp would shut down the BBS and risk losing the following he has now. Makes no sense. Why build up a site just to hurt those you attract to it?
But I guess time will tell...
