Dear Beautiful Beyond3D forum user,
We're migrating to new forum software and doing some server and network maintenance at the same time, which means a period of extended downtime. The forums will be switched off for up to 24 hours, from 9am GMT on Saturday until 9am GMT on Sunday. It should come back way before then, but I'm giving myself some wiggle room in case things break, because of the sheer number of changes being made and maintenance work being done.
I'll put status updates here if things go wrong, or you can pop by Beyond3D IRC on Freenode (#beyond3d) if you want to ask me in real-time.
