    you rang? Apparently their servers are down for maintenance (to include the forums, which have been down all day)

    ok, skyfire was taken down across the board yesterday to fix a potential security issue. On the 30th a user reported that they were directed to someone else's account. I forwarded it to the skyfire types, and they were making sure that it was fixed. This is the only time this has been reported (and you know how much more likely people are to report when there are problems).

    Everything is fixed now and back up and running as of 9AM EST

    I dunno about everyone else....but when I go to Skyfire I just get a constant "Connecting..." without anything happening...

    And I can't seem to be able to sign into the forum, it says my email and password are not valid???....:wacko:

    hmm, both the browser and the forums are working fine for me today. try using the password reset tool on www.skyfire.com and then using that password to change it again to the original password

    That happened to sometime last week I think. Or was it two weeks ago. I saw someone else's email address at the top right. I didn't record anything because I didn't want to be in their server. So I just exited skyfire and restarted as soon as I realized it. I forgot to report it because it only happened once.

    well; it was still rare anyway, and should be fixed now.

    I actually can't find that....it says on the website that everything is done through the device now....but since I can't get my device to connect then I can't find the tool.

    Ugh! Skyfire is such a PITA sometimes. All I keep seeing everytime I try to access it today is this message; "Error finding authentication service, please try again later." AAAAAARRRRRGGGGGGHHHH!
