Some might have noticed that the site has been up and down lately. Simple answer, I'm working on migrating the site from a shared hosting account to our own servers for SCV. We recently upgraded our setup for this spring and we have a killer system ready to go.
The down side, older version of the OS vs the new more secure setup and databases are a little different so transferring databases is not that simple. I hope to have this site up and running by Monday.
