Default Bug: Cant Access TauOnline site or Forum

Well every time i try to load the forums or the site - it takes 5 minutes to glitch up and send me a blank page with the following message:

Connection Problems
Sorry, SMF was unable to connect to the database. This may be caused by the server being busy. Please try again later.
This went on for like 4 days, until now i have got smart and am using a proxy (www.hidemyass.com - years since i used that )
I still cant get into TO normally and i have heard that others are experiencing the same issue and cant load the site either.

After googleing the error it seems the host of tau online my be experiencing some technical hiccups?

Tau Online has recently moved hosts, and hence moved IP addresses. The way the DNS servers work, it'll take about a week to a month to fix itself. At moment, there are two copies of Tau Online, this one which is the current one and the other one which doesn't work as there is no database to access...

Anyway, there is a temporary work around for this problem, simply use this address instead of the usual one:

So if you see somebody on chat or know somebody that can't access Tau Onlinew, give them this address
