    Hmmm, still down.

    Hopefully just a DNS issue.

      I got an email from their site during the time it's been down, weird.
      I know this has nothing to do with vB, but if Brian goes away, I will move to IPB. They have an available download module that I must have. I really hate hearing from vB, sorry we don't offer that, go check at, but then don't come back here asking for help. Like many people I bought 4.x in the presale and didn't use it for a very long time until after it was released. It's amazing to read how unhappy my fellow customers are and IB offers new products that no one wants??? I understand they need to generate revenue to employ developers, but what we were promised compared to what we have are two very different things. It seems IPB is growing so much faster and moving in the right direction.

        Neither Brian nor vBadvanced are going anywhere. Try again in a bit...

          At first glance it is indeed a DNS problem. Their server IP works, but none of their name servers respond.

          Looks like 'both' of their name servers are on the same system. Maybe this will be a quality lesson on single point of failure.

            Thanks Kevin, I was hoping you'd reply to this.
