It's about 10:30PM Eastern time and we're back online. Lots of changes tonight behind-the-scenes so please let me know if you see anything weird, in particular if you see any recent attachments that aren't showing for you.
For our non-USA members, page loads should be faster for you now. All attachments are now being served from the Amazon AWS "CloudFront" service. This means images will now load from a server that is physically closest to you instead of loading from our server in the US.
It was brought to my attention by @MoonMind of some issues with some avatars not showing so we've tweaked a few things. The switch to using the CDN is a big (like monster sized *big* ) 'behind-the-scenes' change so please let us know if anybody notices anything weird.
