We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties

Just a quick update and an apology. Tombraiders.net recently changed web hosting services, when our long-time host, WiredTree, was bought by another company. The new people have been very helpful, but there have been a few unforeseen issues. I apologize for the intermittent outages over the past few days and hope to up and running soon. Meanwhile, if you receive an error message when attempting to connect to the main site, most pages are archived here on the Internet Wayback Machine. Thanks for your patience.
