Yeah, good question. Probably a massive server crash.
The site is basically run by young kids. It's not like they have a ton
of money to throw around. So if something happened to their main
server, it will be a few days before they get it fixed.
>I can't access that page for at least three days? Page cannot be found
>error! They had a good discussion about VF's 2007 coaster!
They got overloaded by all of their users using the site to coordinate
the "Results of centripetal forces on sunburnt tourists with undiagnosed
heart ailments at Walt Disney World" study.

Bull. Steven probably screwed it up again.
FYI: I deleted my posts because Steven said so....
Don't you all have your own forums for this stuff?
It had to be some sort of server crash as someone else stated. I
subscribe to their In the Loop podcast, and the past four or five days,
whenever I open iTunes and the program attempts to update my subscribed
podcasts, I get a black exclamation point next to In the Loop in my
podcast directory, which indicates that the server cannot be found.
In the meantime, below is the official note from TN...
Due to some hardware issues that have unexpectedly occurred over the
July 4th holiday, ThrillNetwork.com will face some extended downtime.
So far, we have seemed to have traced it to power supply issues. We
have the necessary parts on order, and hope to get the site up and
running soon. In the meantime, we appreciate that you do not ask
further questions as we need to concentrate on getting the site back
up. Once restored, all account information, news, posts, etc. will be
available, as nothing has been lost.
If you have other questions, provided they are not related to the
downtime, feel free to contact us
(http://www.thrillnetwork.com/contact.php). Anything related to the
downtime will be ignored as we need to dedicate our resources to
getting the site back up.
Thank you for the patience.

Why haven't I seen that note before? All I get was a 404 error message
and a lot of time those messages NEVER really tell you what is wrong!
:( But thank you for letting us know!
Since the server is already down, it would be a good idea to backup all
the data once the new powersupply is installed. Meaning, before you
bring up the databases, back them up and all settings. That way, if
an admin wants to start tweaking (you know they will) you'll have a
