Has anything been changed with the way the website loads? For the past few days I have had persistent problems with accessing the forums using Google Chrome, as it constantly claims there was a "DNS" failure. Every other website I tried worked during this time. Also, Internet Explorer was able to open it fine. Has anybody else had this problem lately? If not, I'll just assume its a problem on my end and have someone look into it.

The forums were recently moved to a different server with a different IP address and the name servers were changed as well.

This was scheduled maintenance that was supposed to be announced but the person who was supposed to post the announcement failed to do so.

Expect a few random DNS errors for a day or two. They should be gone soon.
