After various emails and messages to the support people from freeboards, the EGB's host, I've giving up all hope. Annoyed that the EGB has been down for over a week, I was finally fed up. So I opened up a back-up EGB, and it might even turn out to be the new EGB if the current one won't work.
I really didn't like making this decision, because I love the current EGB, but if you can't post, there's no real reason to keep hoping.
I still hope the support people email me back, but the chances are slim. So I hope you all will join me on the back-up EGB for now!
