Ladies, I had to shut down the forum for a brief period of time to perform necessary database maintenance tasks. Everything is in order now. I am still working on rebuilding the search index which will take some time but will be done in less than an hour. I apologize for the short notice. I understand that some of you might be wondering why can't we perform these tasks at a different time (say midnight). This is what we usually do but in some cases like today, we have to take action so as to ensure the integrity of our database both in data as well as performance. I have installed a couple of modifications which will make the forum run a lot faster than before. The goal is to make pages load as fast as possible. The new modifications bring extra performance which could be noticed by most of you. Finally, we are still waiting for approval of our new iPhone/iPad mobile applications. It is a lengthy process but we will get there in the end. Android members already use the new application. Thank you all for your support and understanding.
