The forum has a very high demand when it comes to data traffic.
Since all data traffic must be paid for by somebody, you can imagine that most providers are not that eager to host the forum (not to mention the content of the forum, you all know what I mean )
Let's hope the forum will be back soon (hmmm, deja vu ), because it is the most important part of (Club) CD Freaks.
But there is always IRC and IRC is there to stay. IRC survived all forum crashes so far and has helped many people as well. It may be more time consuming, but you'll find many people there.
You can use an IRC client like mIRC ( http://www.mirc.com ) or a Java chat (for example the one on http://www.missingU.com ).
The server to use is any IRCNet server (irc.xs4all.nl irc.stealth.net to mention just 2 possibilities) and the channel is #cdfreaks
See you on IRC!
