Yes, you can blame me... its my fault, but I know you all love me dearly.
Sorry about the downtime, we have been working on improving the server, its backup, and various other technical things...
OK, so here is an "inside" take on it, without breaking my NDA.
All I can say is this. I saw things that certain folk on the ACES team were working on that would WORK WITH FSX and greatly help the community of developers.
I truly hope that those "things" will make it out on the fsinsider...
