Welcome back guys and gals! :cool:

For those who were wondering what happened over the past few days... the explanation given by the company that owns this site is... that while the servers for my.IS were still running... the domain name my.IS stopped pointing to their servers. Although they bought the website he claims they left the domain name in the previous owner's control. So it took them a bit of time to fix things. The domain name .IS is from Iceland.

Oddly enough I don't think they were even aware the site was down. When I contacted them to let them know the site was down... he was like "Oh really? Thanks for letting me know... I'll look into it". And this was on Sunday afternoon!

I think everybody should regain normal access over the next day or so.

Something else interesting I found out is... the company who owns this site is located in Downtown Toronto...

hahah, the downtime had me freaking out.

The site went down the night I installed vista, So I was trying to think if it was a bad install (sounds stupid) or something else.

You know what I never understood is... when ISImpressions was hacked... why didn't you guys just re-organize and make another message board? I mean my.IS goes down for 3 days and there's mass panic and hysteria. Every online message board even remotely related to Lexus/Toyota had a thread asking what happened to my.IS. Eventually the problem was resolved.

But with ISImpressions... it got attacked... and nobody bothered to revive it? You guys just went your own ways and went back to "non-IS300" life? What gives? :confused:

hmm, i think it's a conspiracy...a ploy to get people to have a withdrawal from this site and now more n' more will log on, lol.

I just went to ISfanatics for my fix :D

I'll tell you what happened. They close down my.IS so I can get some work done. What gives? At least I had a nice engagement shoot today.

Just incase you guys need to report this tragic event to your employer or school because of stress trauma symptoms... the official term for what you experienced over the weekend is DISCONNECTION ANXIETY DISORDER. Hopefully you employer/school will be lenient on you this week after realizing how much stress you went thru these past few days. :blush: lol

(btw... that is an actual medical term... I didn't make that up!)
