What happened to the forum today? (2/24/18)

Sometime in the morning EST, there was a 404 error to the forum. Is there a reason for this?

Yeah, our host experienced a brief major outage yesterday and it caused a background task (that we do on the server that runs the forum) to stall and took our server down. It took me a while to figure out what was wrong and get it fixed, but we are all good now.
