As JD posted earlier today (thx, JD!), there’s been some downtime with the Macromedia web forums this week that’s currently expected to extend a little longer- ETA for their return is still being sorted out. There’s been very heavy database load this week due to increased overall site traffic which required the web forums (the most performance-intensive application on MM.com) to be brought down in order to help minimize the load.
However, the NNTP/newsreader interface remains open for business, and I’ll post updates on the situation with the web interface as I hear ‘em going forward. Sincere apologies for any inconvenience in the interim, please keep posted…
