After much work by FurAffinity staff and some dear friends of the website, we're back again, in a brand new location!
Please bear with us - the site will be agonizingly slow as it gets slammed by users. Things should smooth out over the next half day or so as people calm...
There have been some sporadic reports of site slowdown as a result of the ad server. I've done a quick and very dirty fix that will not last very long.
Still at work - I'll take a more in depth look when I get home.
As a result of a security upgrade to the ad server, it is experiencing a minor slowdown issue. If you are seeing FA waiting on servbot.furaffinity.net, we apologize.
I am working on fixing the slowdown, but it is during the day, so I don't have much time to spare to look...
Some of you - but not all of you - may be experiencing trouble reaching FurAffinity.

I'm running some rather powerful maintenance queries on the backend that are causing it to work harder than usual.
Estimated Time of Resolution: 21:00 EST, May 07, 2008
For some as of yet unknown reason, PHP decided to chew up 99% of the CPU cycles on our webserver, thus causing FA to start through 502 errors when the backend requests would time out.
When I took FA down to fix it, the forums slowed to a crawl, because everyone was looking here for why it was...
I sincerely apologize for the forums and main site downtime today.
Unfortunately, the internet seems to be experiencing some downtime between two of the major internet providers (upstream internet) Global Crossing, and Verizon. As of the time of this posting, Global...
As frequent purveyors of FA know, when we are doing work on the main site or on the forums and one tries to access FA, they're greeted by a "Connection Refused" or a lovely blank white page. Descriptive, huh?
