    Wondering if I got banned or if the server is down. I get an error message that says "The connection was refused when attempting to connect autopia.org"

    It's interesting that the stores always stay up but the forums (autopia.org, meguiarsonline.com, and now the BCC forum) go down quite a bit. I guess it's not worth investing in bullet proof hosting for the forums.

    I don't know of any other place that experience the downtime that autopia experiences either. Even my little website on my shitty $10/month webhost seems to have better reliability. The machine responds to a ping, so it's on the network and I can connect to the mailserver, but the web part of it is actively refusing connections.

    I can't imagine that you're the only sponsor that is concerned...

    Considering some of Megan's posts lately (or yours if you are using her account), I can understand why you would worry you may be banned! :mamoru:

    Every once in a while, Autopia takes a dump I guess. Maybe David is trying an updated version of VB and it crashed.

    Autopia is down while we upgrade to VB 3.0. Please be patient. It will be worth the wait.

    Lol no I just speak the truth. They like to pretend like there is no hiden agenda. Just a way for David to make money on the store.

    What items are you looking for. I can probably put you in touch with a different store for less money.

    We have a list of vendors that are recommended by other forum members.

    Like Pat said, Autopia is being upgraded to VB3.0.
