Please read... why the board was down yesterday

Post by Sir Ironside »

The TLG forum was down for a little bit yesterday and the reason was because phpbb was hacked and some forums that use phpbb was shut down for safety reasons. I mentioning this because it is being recommended to change your passwords on all affected forums. So, change your password!

Here is the link to the phpbb boards explaining the situation. They claim the information here wasn't compromised.... but I'd go ahead and change your password anyway.

That's good to know. I thought there was just a Dr. Pepper shortage myself. ;)
