    Lightbulb Downtime

    We lost the database connection while the host was working on some extra security measures, resulting in a short downtime. We should be back up and running now... Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Slightly off topic, but during the "downtime" I went to the RFO Facebook page to check for any posted issues (since it was my first time checking in this morning, I didn't know how long the site had been down, and thought if it had been down a long time, maybe updates would be posted there on what was going on). Anyway, at least in my web browser, all the recent wall "posts" are in another language other than English (looks to be Arabic?). I'm all for international participation, but frankly, it's a bit confusing... I wasn't even sure if I was on the "official" RFO site or whether the Facebook page had been hacked (and whether it had something to do with the RFO site being down). And sincerely, I mean no offense to whoever it was who posted on the Facebook page.

    (p.s. FTR, I also checked twitter for any updates about the downtime).

    Must admit that it's been ages since I last visited the RFO Facebook page - But yah, looks like the recent comments there are in Arabic... Not sure that anything can (or should) be done about that...

    The above mentioned downtime was "only" 37 minutes, and frankly I didn't even think to make a post on FB and/or Twitter - I was way to concerned with getting the forum back online

    Sorry, didn't mean to imply that you should have posted on facebook/twitter under the circumstances - your energies were focused on the priory at hand.
