The Skepticality Website and forum is currently down.


The exact reason why is unclear, but Skepticality is in the process of changing server host. We are also changing the forum software from phpBB to vBulletin and it's possible something went wrong during the database backup and conversion process. The old host have also been less than cooperative.

The down-time we had last week was 24 hours longer than it should have been, the host crew couldn't fix an SQL-related problem that shouldn't have taken them more than 30 minutes.


This was the last drop, that made the Skepticality Crew decide that a new and dependable host was needed.

Expect the Skepticality site to be up and running again within a few days at the most. I will post a notice...

Thank you for your patience

...and now it's up again. Boy, do I feel stupid. Less than an hour after I posted the above message.

Anyway, the transfer to the new host and software isn't done yet, so don't be surprised if the site goes down again. It's just some growth-pain.

And yet the only new posts are about cat-poop coffee. Tsk, tsk.

Anyhow, did you get my PM about getting 419 scam private messages here again?

Well, it appears to be down again, as just going to the homepageonly results in an error message (which I'll PM to you, Mab).

Evidently, I rock!
Why not question something for a change?
