My apologies on that.

Since Saturday, the site has been taken down (from public view) for several hours at night, for maintenance and upgrades. Some major functionality is being coded into the main site, and requires it be taken down. The forum is also receiving a number of modifications, upgrades, and additions, but does not require a takedown to do so.

The first night of downtime was very inelegant, and was when you would get a password error site-wide. Hopefully you only had an issue on Saturday night, when the password error existed? Again, my apologies on that one. I was hoping nobody would be caught by it.

Starting on Sunday, the takedown method was adjusted to only block the main site -- not the forum. From now on, the main site will redirect to a CDN maintenance page, as seen here. That page will be edited for current site status when it's down.

Maintenance is only done at late-night hours, when traffic tends to be minimal.
