    Can anyone explain to me in non-technical terms what happened to the Bass Gear Review site, and speculate as to when it might be back up? Suffering from chronic stupidity, I don't understand the computer lingo on the main page...

    Thanks,
    Aram

    The programming language in which BGRA is written was changed recently by the Powers That Be. As a result, none of the old code works.

    The site itself works, but I haven't seen any new reviews for several weeks, so I'm assuming new reviews can't be submitted. Bummer...I really like that site :(

    The site itself is still up. The database language used to process forms is busted in some arcane way. That's what the rant on the home page is about.
