After a full week of being down we are back. Please bare the mess for another day but we are happy to say that we are back online. Boy oh boy I missed you all.

So what happened you asked?
About 2 weeks ago a virus hit the WWW called Nimbus. This virus hit the DNS domain server where VWFORUM.com was hosted. Causing us the site to start to slow down. Some of you may have noticed this. Well then the DNS server's crashed completely. We contacted them immediately, they basically were no hope and gave us no sign that we were going to be back online anytime soon.

We wanted to move any ways so this happened for the best. We moved to ABAC hosting we have our own machine and things are looking real good. The service is better and the site should run a lot faster. Again we apologize for the outage but this one was out of our control. We are just happy to be back online to help serve you.

It goes with that saying you don't know what you got until you don't have it!

Lastly to end on a positive note in 10 days it's VWFORUM.com birthday. We will be one year old; watch out for a birthday special coming soon.

Peanut Butter Jelly an' a baseball bat.

Ahhhhh... its so good to be back home.. I was starting to just randomly tell people at school and church about Volkswagens last week, Im sure they will all be delighted to know I have an appropriate outlet again. BTW, DB, my Pic went away, do you need me to email it to you again, or are you still uploading some of them.

Thanks for getting it up and running again DB, you're the money and the bomb.

djvibe...yeah it looks very nice in the engine bay. performes nicely as well. The install went longer than I expected though. I am not an experienced "modder," so it took like 4 hours with some more inexperienced help from my dad. But, at 10:30 pm 2 monday nights ago, it was totally installed. I am very proud of myself. Well, I will have pics up possibly later tonight.
