Has Alpha pulled the plug on outback's forum? It has been saying server forbidden all day?

    I thought it was just me. Being forbidden makes you wonder what is being hidden from us...hmmmm?

    Someone at OB forgot to pay the ISP bill during the change-over ? (their server pipe seems to be small/low now)

    The website hangs on the "live support" widget all the time.

    And what's with the sale to Alpha? Fact or rumour or ??? There's no press release on the Alpha website, and I didn't get anything in the mail on their regular mailing list.

    The web site is probably slow due to being slammed with traffic from people who want to see if it's still there and what's going on.
