Board dead?

is it just me or is something wrong. I can not imagine this thing going all day without at least one comment from Todd.

Message forums along with many other parts of Real Racin USA and KARNAC.com were down today. We were doing some major security and other upgrades to our server and had some problems. We think all is back to normal as of 4:00 PM

The updates didnt seem to help. The board is still slow and it drags my computer down when Im on the site.
