Got the same error while asking for new posts as well as just the home page.

Well I apologize for the downtime. I'll look into it.

I was clicking on a bookmark to www.waterlooregionconnected.com/search.php?action=getnew but the messages suggest the problem was more general, either the server was overloaded ("SQL Error: 1040 - Too many connections") or a communications error ("Query: [READ] Unable to connect to MySQL server.")

P.S. There's no need to apologize for the downtime. I appreciate all that you do for us. I just thought this needed to be reported in case it recurs or affects others.

Seems to be a time issue on the server. I've turned off DST adjustment and it still seems to think it's an hour ahead of what it actually is.

Fixed. It's set to automatically detect daylight savings time, but I'm not sure it does. Might mean a manual change has to happen twice a year.

FWIW the newly released phpBB 3.1 now does DST changes automagically. Lobby myBB to do likewise.

I think a bunch of accounts have been hacked; there are posts in either a foreign language or gibberish all over.

There were a number of spam posts, is that what you were talking about?

Could be, but I think a couple of existing members posted in the threads as well, unless they were responding.

If you mean earlier this evening, one new "member" apparently from Poland made about half a dozen spam posts in Polish. I responded as politely as I could under the circumstances. Pardon my FrenchPolish.
