OBN Friday Notes: 8/24

Happenings around the Outdoor Blogger Network and Outdoor Community: 

First off, as some of you may have experienced over the last 2 weeks, the OBN has been intermittently down, throwing 500 server errors and being cantankerous. That’s because the OBN once again hit the ceiling on it’s server capacity, bandwidth, and all that host jazz. Here is the solution:

The upgrade is in process. Hopefully everyone finds the site is more enjoyable shortly! (p.s thank you to all those who sent emails letting me know about the issues you were seeing. Mucho appreciated!)
