First time this has ever happened in the 10 years the site's been open, but we had a major hard drive failure which took down our whole server. So we had to quickly get a new server ready and transfer the daily backup which was almost 24 hours old at that point, so everything you've done since 4am EST on Sunday is gone. Sorry for that :)

Having the same problem - when I click on something I am getting this...

 

The page isn't redirecting properly

Seems like all the links that give Brad credit in the Deals section of the forums are broken. I don't plan on shopping anytime soon so I don't mind :P
