At 4:30PM PST, I called the tech support line at liquid web (http://liquidweb.com) to see if they could take a look at the server and see if it is one of their boxes. They couldn't give me any information considering I am not the admin, but he said he would look into it.
The site had been routing to lw-dc2-sec1-dist1-po1.rtr.liquidweb.com [184.108.40.206] and then timing out at the server hosting this forum opencarry.mywowbb.com [220.127.116.11].
Everything looks to be up and running again. Maybe the site admin or a moderator has more information on what happened and can post here.
