I had time to think, "what would life be like without SP?" May be I spend too much time on this website. But if I can't be in the mountains in person, SP helps me get a little closer.

Strange, I heard on the 14ers site that SP was back. Went to check and said that it was down for maintenance. :? Cleared by browser cache (3 hours later) and then poof! Suddenly SP worked again. :)

So does anyone know what was going on?

Mandatory server migration by our hosting provider. The server had to be brought down and entirely copied over to a new server.

I'm still getting : "SP is down for maintenance, and will be back as soon as possible ..."

I was able to upload (download?) my profile page by going on to Google and typing in "What the hell happened to SP ???"

When I heard 'J.L.' mumbling something about a load of computer jargon, I knew there was a glimmer of light at the end of the scary tunnel.

:shock:

SP should not being having any maintenance messages anymore. Anyone who still has it, needs to clean their cache. Cache is basically a temporary data which can cover up what the actual site should be displaying. Below are some links of how to delete it based on the browser.

Google Chrome:

Still having problems? I would be happy to assist. :)
