Last night, around 10:30 CST, the web host stopped responding. It needed a manual reboot which took several hours to complete.

We are still inviestigating the root cause.

Please accept our appology for any inconvience.

I still had big problems until today.

First, I cleaned out my cache. No luck.

Then I deleted my cookies. Still no go.

I yelled "Connect, dammit!!!!!!!". That didnt help either.

At that point, I figured that something had to be wrong with my internet Explorer, so I uninstalled it and reinstalled. Still didnt work.

Figured it had to be my ISP. Called them and bitched them out. They hung up on me. Seems that wasnt the problem either.

Uninstalled Windows and reinstalled Windows. No dice.

Formatted my hard drive and started over from scratch. That didnt do the trick either.

Now I knew what the problem was. I wasnt getting enough signal from your site, so I took my computer, and threw it on the high power lines running outside my home. Unfortunately, I got too much signal.

After buying my new computer and configuring it, I tried again, but no luck.

Figured the bits needed to be greased to allow for a fast enough connection to get to the forum. Poured salad oil into my computer. Still didnt work, and my new computer was tossed in the process.

After buying my next computer and configuring it, I took the top off a shaker of salt, and threw the salt over my shoulder. Eureka. Here I am :)

Please dont go down again. Its makes for a lot of work for me. LOL.

No worries. It's reserved solely for my quote unquote computer. I wouldn't want to offend any animals...;) . And primative man didn't eat meat. Just a heads up. :mrgreen:

I don't know what man was thinking, little bunny foo-foo makes a damned good soup! I especially like to top little bunny foo-foo with some greens, it's sort of a sick irony.

:p

Rabbit is great food. I eat it every Easter. They may be cute, but they are delicious too. I like Bambi too. Hunt that every fall. :)

Seriously though, there are some very good reasons to curtail eating of meat - Processing, hormone injections, feeding of cow carcasses to cows, and many other aspects of commercial food preparation which are ultimately unhealthy. Have you noticed the huge increase of Alzheimer's disease in the last few years? Did you know that the symptoms of mad cow and Alzheimers are exactly the same? Some scientists are now saying that prions are causing Alzheimers. I still like meat, and always will, but I have cut way down on it in the last few months, and guess what? I actually feel healthier.

Seriously. Government can't figure out where a cow with Mad Cow disease came from? Doesn't phase me one bit.

Then how do you explain our large brains that resulted from an increase of protein in our diets? Hmmm?

I once fed a cow a hamburger, oddly enough he told me that: "It tastes like chicken."

Looking like we had a similar incident today - but this time it lasted damn near ALL day.

Sorry about that - host company just received a ticket to get this resolved ASAP.

Again, sorry for the inconvenience.

Short story: We believe it's fixed! Yay!

Long story: Memory errors and Kernel bug errors. Memory was replaced, Kernel was re-compiled, and mysql database was reindexed and repaired.
