Quick important note: Because of all the extra traffic this week, we’re going to be upgrading our server this evening to be able to handle these kinds of traffic spikes more easily. We may be down for a couple hours later tonight but we should be back up by tomorrow morning better than ever. Certainly by Monday, Scotty tells us that the warp core should be purring like a kitten again. So thanks for your patience and know that things will be much better soon.
