The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Ok, so I panicked for a few minutes and took the forum offline.

I know this is ancient news now, but this forum went down sometime in early 2009 and I figured it was gone for good. I didn't bother visiting Skeptic.com much but then someone linked to here recently from the slymepit.

What happened? How long was it down and when did it get back up again??

I don't know. Possibly a server malfunction. There is probably a post or two on the subject buried here somewhere.

ETA: Here it is:

viewtopic.php?f=23&t=11540&p=162560&hilit=server#p162524

Basically, the forum was moved to a new server and the Internet spit up hairballs until Pixy got the DNS straightened out.

Yes. It seems so. My thanks to Pyrrho and Pixy.

I had the very embarrassing experience of running into Gord on the JREF forum, when he was using his "other name".

Like the surviving victims of a great train wreck, the wounded wandered towards JREF to keep warm and wait for news of their loved ones.
