The forum and main site should work, members and posts are looking OK to me. You will notice I took this unplanned outage time to update the software to the latest version, it looks a trifle different.
You will notice also that some areas are unavailable to you, Galleries and such .. the data is still in place but there is a slight issue at present on the site and I have disabled access to them at present until such times as I work it out .. I do have a very good idea what the issue is, but need to take my time and test it out on my complete copy of the forum on my PC, this is likely to take a while .. perhaps up to a week, depending on how it goes, plus normal work commitments which must take precedence.
You should be able to post on the forum normally and use the Shoutbox (please don't overuse it as I will need to keep an eye on resource usage)
There are small things unavailable, user default posting colour picker is one, which may return as and when new versions become available, so if you notice something isn't available that you had previously .. don't post questions asking where has X gone? Accept that it's gone, it may come back it may not.
Hopefully things will work when I switch the forum and site back on, if it doesn't and it seems major PM me .. I may not be able to respond to you PM, however, I will look into the issue when I have time.
Thanks for your patience and thanks for reading this, I expect to turn the forum back on shortly, I just need to check some premission settings to ensure they are correct .. i.e. that Guests can't actually see anything they're not meant to, once that's done I will open the forum again .. although new registrations will still be disabled, sorry people who may wish to join but I need to ensure everything is working completely before I open it up fully.

EDIT 6 November 2012: the Galleries and Blogs etc may take alot longer to be brought back, the inkling I had yesterday proved to be incorrect.
EDIT 11 November 2012: fixed Galleries etc and these should be available later today
