Seems we had some downtime today and I didn't realize it until late Thursday night due to being tied up with work. I have tracked down the cause to windows update shutting down the database server when it should have just rebooted the server.
Sorry for the inconvenience, everything should be back to normal.

Interested in the cop cars, too?
Why don't you figure out what make, model and year they are?
I will then post them on here and give the first ones to guess them the credit. :)
This week we're celebrating the German cars in Need for Speed Most Wanted in the lead up to GamesCom. Today's it's the turn of the Mercedes SLS AMG, the flagship Benz.
The iconic doors are inspired by classic 1952 300 SL.
ItÂ¹ll jump from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and top out at 197 miles per hour, but itÂ¹s not just the performance that makes this car special.
Itâ€™s the sound.
The 6.3 liter V8 delivers spectacular power and a fantastic soundtrack at any speed. Hit the gas hard and the SLS screams blue murder.
In-game itâ€™s powerful but very well balanced, with an excellent drift. Its light weight makes it a target for heavier, more durable cars, but theyâ€™ve got to catch you first.
Pictures of "the real thing in action" and the full article you can check out on NeedForSpeed.com.
Most Wanted - Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series
August 6th 2012
We're showing Most Wanted to the general public for the first time ever at GamesCom 2012 in Cologne, Germany next week.
Look out for big news, new gameplay and stacks of video and pictures from the game starting with our press conference on the 14th August.
And to get you in the mood, we're talking about some of Most Wanted's hottest cars. This week, we're celebrating the Germans!
Let's start with the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series.This car's all about domination.
It's the most powerful AMG model yet with a 6-liter V12 that develops 661 horsepower. That's more than 738 lb ft of torque through the rear wheels. Hit the gas, and you can probably spin the Earth.
But this SL65â€™s not just about power. It'll do 0-60 in 3.7 seconds and hit an (electronically limited) top speed of 199 miles-per-hour.
In Most Wanted, this car's almost unstoppable in a straight line and potent in a fight, but it'll take all your skill to keep a lid on all that awesome power in the tightly confined downtown areas of Fairhaven City.
Because we love you, and we know you love the SL 65 Black Series, weâ€™re making it available straight out of the box and pre-loaded with the Power Pack.
To get yours, just pre-order on PC from our Origin store or head to Walmart.com, where pre-orders come bundled with a heavily modified Ford F-150 Raptor. Unbelievable!
We're back with an all new video of Most Wanted.
'This time, we're showcasing three cars in the open world of Fairhaven City: the Corvette ZR1, the Koenigsegg Agera R and the Hummer H1 Alpha. These cars tell you a little about the diverse nature of our line-up for this year's Need for Speed.
The Corvette ZR1 is fast, fast, fast. A screaming, all-American answer to 80 years of European supercar supremacy. It's fast, light and agile thanks to a 638 horsepower V8 and stripped down chassis that features an all-carbon roof.
Undisputed Heavyweight Champion
The Hummer is the undisputed heavyweight champion of Fairhaven City. You won't escape the cops or outrun your friends and rivals in this 6.6-liter turbo-diesel monster, but you won't need to. It's the heaviest and toughest car in the game.
The Koenigsegg Agera R is built for speed. It'll hit 273mph on the straights. It'll get you to 200mph in an astonishing 17.68 seconds and stop you dead in 7.28. Cop on your tail? Hit the brakes, he'll fly right by.
Most Wanted isn't about pristine cars sitting untouched in a showroom. It's about getting your foot down, sliding the back end out and fighting your way past cops and rivals to the top of your Most Wanted list.
The action takes you on a grand tour of Fairhaven City, a massive, open world of heavily policed freeways, downtown grids, industrial zones, tunnels, storm drains and high-speed open roads.
