I asked on their Facebook this morning.
Here is what I got. (Tomorrow being 12/23/11)

Mike Thiede "Server for the website crashed. They are working on installing the back up and hopefully it will be up later today or tomorrow."

The server crashed and repairs are underway. Last msg that I received was that it could be a couple more days.

Is a former Yooper allowed in on the action? Haha. I still own land near republic and my parents and family is still in ishpeming. You can take the person out of the UP but you can't take the UP out of the person.

I've been wondering what happened....i couldn't get my fix at MGO (dono) anymore so i joined over here.

...I got the following E mail from the Admin at MGO regarding the current problems.It's got to be even more frustrating for him.
Completely out of my control….our hosting company’s server had a major crash ‘n burn…they tried to restore all affected customers the efficient way, but it kept failing at around 50%…so now they have to rebuild the server file structure…one customer at a time, directory by directory (slow, inefficient process).
I can’t do anything until they have the server restored. In the mean time, we are on an old server…but I cannot run the current forum software on that server…only get email, etc.

ARRRRRGGGG!!!

Good news even if it did come via Yooper --- just kidding. Sheriff, is there enough snow to fire the sleds up?

The Sheriff

...Not yet, but it won't be much longer.
Winds are ripping out of the northwest at over 25 mph, and the low tonight may get into single digits.
...Cold dry air passing over the great lakes could start up the snow machine at any time.

Sounds like some guy is hosting it on a pc in his basement running Windows 95 and a 20gig harddrive

The outage is starting to remind me of the Discover Card commercial with "Peggy" in it.
