AfterDawn experiencing various server problems We've had it bad today. During the morning hours (GMT), our forum server had crashed and was down just under 2 hours before we managed to pull it back.
And this afternoon at 3pm (GMT), our ad server crashed, making pages to crawl as they tried to load ads from a server that was down. We're still having some problems with the ad serving and have therefor pulled all the ads from the site temporarily to allow the site to run normally.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but also realize that these types of problems are inevitable during the phase where our server farm has just been transferred to a new ISP. We are working overtime to get the system totally robust and to build a failover system that would allow the site to operate even when some of the servers would experience problems.
