    Is this common knowledge? Does anyone know why? Will it be back?

    I don't have accounts for Twitter or Facebook so I can't ask.

    I don't tweet either unfortunately. It could just be the site is down because of a fault or maintenance.

    Is there anything in our library that might help?

    Hopefully its just some technical glitch or payment to web host issue. It would suck if he was forced to shut it down by employment or other threats

    Seems to be a problem with the site host service.
    The site is still 'there' but not available.

    That's slightly reassuring, anyway.

    Hey, David (Tuller) here. I just saw this. I'm checking with Vincent Racaniello. It's a glitch of some kind--nothing intended.

    Thanks. I've generally felt uncomfortable being on patient forums since I'm not a patient, so inserting myself has felt like I'm intruding. But seems a bit different here. Vincent R. is trying to work out whatever the issue is with the site. Nothing's lost--just some technical glitch. Hopefully should be back up today.

    You're very welcome here @dave30th! :)

    Having people here who are not patients, but who understand is an advantage for us. It's a very useful perspective.

    We have family members and carers here too, not just patients.

    Welcome, David. Not everyone here is a patient - there are some carers here, and some ME/CFS researchers. You would fit right in!

    Far from it. We all know how very hard and capably you strive to help PwME. I think "intruding" is the very last word anyone would think. My wife has ME, not me, by the way.

    And by the same token, if you are nonetheless happier to just lurk, that will be fine also.

    Ha, I might be a lurker by personality! Thanks, all, for the welcome.

    Hi @dave30th. I am so very pleased you have joined us. This site is definitely for researchers, supporters, families, friends and people with ME. The more we work together the better.
