Just trying to do a little studying this morning, but was greeted with this:

Does this prove the long suspected alliance between NCARB and Bashar Assad?

lol.  intern architects must fear syria.  they're clearly coming after some of the most dangerous and influential people in our society.  anyway, i clicked it because i'm dumb like that.  will let you know if anything appearing to be a virus or whatever pops up on my network. is still safe.

Same here. The forum have been hacked!

Well, I just got word, NCARB is going to send cruise missiles, shortly.

Has anyone heard about the forum coming back online? It seems there's just an error page and I can't find another url.

I'm testing in 6 weeks and I have to deal with Syria? This reminds me of when the MTA wanted to strike the week of Christmas. Before I was against going into Syria, however; now I say we send an army of drones to blow up their entire country.

What's ironic  is that Bashar Al-Asaad could learn a thing or two about torturing the masses from NCARB.

Thanks RickB,

I have been to Coach's site and it is fantastic of him to take the time to start a forum we can use in place of I definitely plan on using it as a resource to post any questions.

I have found that the previous posts and discussions have always been more than valuable in studying. Hoping those become available again.

It would be nice to see the forum  again but I won't expect it anytime soon.

You can use my forum as an alternate:

It has all the functions of, and has more options.

Our unique feature: We have not only ARE Forums, but LEED forums as well.

I think LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is one of the most important trends of development and is revolutionizing the construction industry. It has gained tremendous momentum and has a profound impact on our environment.

In fact, NCARB has quietly incorporated a lot of LEED content into EACH of the ARE division without using the term LEED. Just read the scope of exam for each ARE division, and you'll know.
