Ok, this has been an exciting week. Sorry for the downtime! Here's what happened:
I attempted to update GunZFactor's forum software. Turns out, that adding a new column of data on 3.5 million posts takes up a lot extra room. To clarify, GunZFactor's database got too large for the ENTIRE PARTITION that it was located on. So, I had to move GunZFactor's database to a larger location, which in retrospect was not a simple process. Turns out, moving databases crashed a few tables, and those has to be fixed as well. Then I finally updated the software, and went ahead and updated our plugins.
So, pretty much everything has been updated, Gunzfactor is good to go for at least a few months without any futher back-end maintance or upkeep.
