Adobe has announced that their forums will be down for scheduled maintenance from about 1:00PM until 4:00PM PST on 11/11/2011. There is a sticky Announcement on the Forum Comments forum's main page:
Well, looks like the forums survived. As of 4:20PM PST, they are back up.
Seems that we have both a new icon and larger text box for Search. Have not tried those yet.
Long time to have ones head bowed on 11/11/11?
I agree. It actually came on a good day, to pause, reflect and be both thankful and respectful.
It was also my mother's birthday, so a bit more reflection, than for some others.
The down-time was not that bad, and was almost exactly as Adobe stated it would be. For me, things seem a bit snappier, and the new Search seems to be doing a much better job - worth waiting for.
