Update (Sunday, 11/7, 1:00pm PST): Everything is up and working. Thanks everyone for your patience.

Update (Sunday, 11/7, 8:00am PST): the website and forum are back up, but the store is not yet functional. We hope to have this corrected soon.

The club's website will be up and down intermittently starting tomorrow and possibly stretching through until Sunday. You should expect there to be at least one long stretch where it will be unavailable. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

The club is springing for more exclusive (and expensive, of course) hosting service. It is our expectation that this will eliminate the really long waits for web pages to load and the occasional errors that seem to be a result of timeouts occuring at the shared hosting and shared database servers that we are currently using.

Doing this requires completely copying the website from its current home to the new server; reconfiguring the site for that new location; and then changing the internet DNS server information to redirect people to the new machine. The process is not automated and is error prone, so it may take some time for it all to come together.

If you have any questions or concerns about this, please feel free to use the contact form.
