    Looks like we got through the upgrade of the operating system with only 42 mins. of downtime. (Can you remove and install a new OS in that time)? [​IMG]

    This is one of the many steps were taking to try and get the forum back to its zippy self. Thanks again for your patience.

    But why is it taking so long for everything to load???

    (Nope, not my internet, I just downloaded a movie and it took all of 2 minutes.)

    Boy, my bubbles been busted! I thought it was due to the extreme member flow! Or even a membership drive- er, membership cluck!
    Thanks for making this site available to so many, with the diversity that we need to learn, do and laugh at. The friendships and net working has been phenomenal and those I've met have changed and also encouraged me in life.

    I am getting some slow loadign pages, and I was freaking out running in circles going "is it there yet"??

    WOW, I agree you need to put a banner up when you are doing this stuff. You would have thought someone hid my morning coffee or took my bottle of wine away!!! LOL

    Okay, I think we're back in action. There were a few glitches, but I think we've got them sorted out.

    We're still working to get things beefed up to handle the evening rush, but we're getting closer!
