Ladies and Gentlemen, dear members of this board,

Over the past 5 minutes or so you may have encountered a "Driver Error" page. This was not a true database problem, but purely due to standard maintenance procedures. We either have the option to lock everybody out temporarily, or get this page to pop up every so often, but only for very short periods of time.

For now we have chosen for the latter, as this will result in the least downtime.

Warm regards,

on behalf of the FPN Admin Team

Please note that you may experience this "Driver Error" database related message from time to time, even when we are not performing maintenance. There is a "click here" link to "refresh" in an attempt to clear it, and most of the time it works on the first try.

Maintenance is being performed at a much more frequent rate than before to combat the appearance of these messages, which are not really errors but "database timeouts". We are working with our software vendor to resolve this problem and feel confident we will eventually. The good thing is that it is contained now, so that the errors do not happen very often or persistently.

We thank you very much for your patience in this matter!
