Just an FYI
The account was suspended without any notice because the software needed an upgrade. If the hosting company gave me notice it wouldn't be an issue but the software can't be updated unless the site is up and active. I made countless calls and emails to the hosting company to explain the catch 22 but it took 4 days for them to grasp that.

I have been with that host for 13 years so you'd think they would value a long time customer however because of they're lack of customer service I have decided to move the site to a different host which will be happening over the next few days.

So in short the site issues are not over yet but they will be in a few days so hang in there :beer:

Thanks for the update, Derek. I'm glad to see the site back up and running.

Self quarantine is bad enough. Now the account was suspended

Nice to see black background (along with the Cat's Eyes masthead) just came back. It was hard to read white usernames on a white background.

Thank you kindly, D., for your update note and all the work you've done and continue to do to provide us Lionbackers with a top-notch forum. My appreciation for the site skyrocketed during the past several days while it was inaccessible. I really consider myself a lucky fellow to have access to such a solid bunch of fans and their insights, varying perspectives and opinions. Cheers!

That's an easy answer ... reach into your wallet for about the $300 a year it takes to keep this site running :popcorn:
