Apologies for the board downtime which was caused by a massive influx of Bots scanning the board and downloading information from dozens of pages at the same time. Accessing the amount of pages that they accessed at the one time led to the MySQL script being overloaded leading to me to have to take the step of renaming the scripts in order to kick the Bots (and unfortunately genuine users) off the system. We are taking steps to ban these bots from accessing the site in the hope that there will be no further problems.
