Bad timing, isn't it?
Our main hard drive - the one that hosts all the fics and the "static" informational pages - has become physically damaged at our ISP's hosting location.
We're in the process of doing a major data recovery, but it might take a day or three more.
We'd planned to close submissions next week in the lead-up to the release of Deathly Hallows, but it looks like we need to do that now - we'll try to reopen for a few days pre-release but since it's all hardware-dependent, we can't guarantee when or for how long.
The forums are still working, and if you know exact urls of stories, you should be able to read them via Archive.org - you can even find urls (if you know the author or title) via our Chapter Owls Yahoogroup or Google Group. Obviously, we've had to close to new submissions until we get this worked out, but we hope to reopen soon.
