Yesterday, I received repeated timeouts when trying to access DBSTalk. Then I tried AVSForum and had the same results. Were both sites actually down?

Yep, there was a major power outage. It was kind of funny, I saw on tweets that it affected SatelliteGuys as well. There was a goofy time stamp issue after that, there's a thread in Forum Support about it.

Same here, funny thing was that it seemed like every forum style website was down for me; AVSforum, this site, Satelliteguys, and a few others.

First of all, I'm moving this to forum support.

Second of all, it's not that odd... it was a MAJOR datacenter that went down. My guess is they host a lot of vBulletin sites, not to mention a lot of other stuff we'll never know about.
Opinions expressed by me are my own and do not necessarily reflect
those of DBSTalk.com, DIRECTV, DISH, The Signal Group, or any other company.
