Day trading futures, discussing money management and trade management techniques, and more

Forum temporarily down

The forum was so incredibly popular that we immediately exceeded our CPU limits and script allowances.

I tried to plead with the host but they have "severely restricted" access to the forum as of a few minutes ago. (it is down for me, blank page).

I already started securing a new dedicated box, but it will take me more time to migrate everyone over.

So I ask for your patience. The forum is NOT dead and it WILL be back as quickly as I can make it... it just exceeded my expectations with regards to resources, and I didn't select a proper host the first time around.

UPDATE: Was able to send a mass email letting all registered members know that we'll be back soon.

This graph shows how we were blowing through their limits. I knew it almost immediately but it took me a couple days to negotiate with a new host over money.  Below you can see we're allow 12,000 script executions per 24 hour rolling average.  We were using over 43,000 an HOUR (43,000 * 24 = 1 million a day, when allowed 12,000).
