Currectly I'm having some issues with the database connectivity of my forum software.
I am dilligently working this issue as well as the possibility of upgrading the server and forum software as well which would greatly increase the speed, options and stability of the overall website.
Thank you for your patience, and am working to get the old site working as quickly as possible. The site and all it's data is still secure and operational, there has been no loss of the forum and it isn't going anywhere.
If you are on facebook and not in the shovelhead us facebook group send me a friend request and I will add you up.
