Yes, it was down for about 7 or 8 hours. Still loading, but you couldn't read new threads or post on old ones. Very frustrating!

Between Meredith leaving the Today show and the forum going down, I wasnt sure how today could possibly be my birthday. I started out the day so discombobulated that I didnt know what to do. Smiling again though.

Happy Birthday Ric!

By the way, I just tried clicking on your website given in your profile. It won't load for whatever reason.

The drink made Frank extremely happy but he lost contol of the glass, spilled the entire scotch on his laptop. Alas, it was before the maintenance was completed. Back in his room, Frank furiously dissembled his laptop computer and dried scotch off his laptop now completely open and taken apart. He had to wait about 8 hours before he assembled the laptop again. Fortunately it was a success. He did not lose his laptop and were able to fix the site with minimum damage.

So can I get the free ticket?


I've taken the liberty to quote the above by FarmGirl, which she just posted in the Pianist Corner.

Lots of people apparently. Too bad you weren't around this morning Mik. I think this is the 2nd time it happened.

Ric, it doesn't work for me. I see the page for about half a second and then it vanishes from view. You might still have some bugs there.
