DONE: DonationCoder.com Server Maintenance on Nov 13,2009
« on: November 13, 2009, 07:39:06 PM »
Just a heads-up, the server is going to be down for a brief period the night of Nov 13, 2009 for normal maintenance/update.

IF (and only IF) something goes wrong and the site is down for more than a few hours, we will initiate emergency plan codename "Cody-Savior-Bravo", which will activate our backup form at the url: http://forum.dcmembers.com

Make note of that url should this occur.  And don't panic!

This wouldn't be related to the email bomb us moderators received would it?

Someone needs their mass-emailing privileges suspended while they sit & think about what they have done. :)
