If you’re trying to connect early in the morning on 11/18/2012, then you’re likely seeing problems due to a maintenance task we have running.

The database server has been running a while, and we’re helping it out by defragmenting the database.  This takes more than an hour, but less than two, unless something fails.  Come back a little later and everything should be fine.

Sorry for the inconvenience.  We try and do this once a month or so, and it’s just time again.

    Now what am I going to do while I drink coffee and watch the sun come up?!?!

    That’s certainly a relief! My first thought was that with all the anti-gun sentiment around now, some hacker had attacked the site.
