I got home just a few minutes ago after being out most of the day and discovered that the forum was down.

It is a very simple fix and just needs the server rebooted which I can do remotely however I did not know it was down.

I am looking for a script that will check the status of the forum every 30 minutes or so and notify me if there is a problem so I can jump on it and correct the problem.

Until then.. feel free to shoot me an email if you are having problems.

All should be well now..

Not a good day...Threw my wife off her computer, to see if there was something wrong with mine..
not good there either...
dug out the laptop...
another rejection...60*out today... still too much ice in the yard to get the bike out...
...thought I'd be joining Rodger in rehab...
Glad things are ok...and up and running again...

i was going nuts!! add to the fact that my wife and i quit smoking thursday night. well, i quit; she has had a couple of smokes, i took a puff or two, and it just tasted nasty to me- we went to hypnotherapy. anyway, was glad to see the forums back up.

Way to go Chris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Think how much more meat you can buy if you aren't buying cigarettes
. I quit on April 15th of last year and haven't had a puff since.

Keep with it Chris. I quit April 1st of 2000. It won't be easy either. You gotta have the "want to" to get past it. I still find myself wanting one, especially if I'm at a stop light and someone lights one up. After the first week or so it's all mental... so keep your head in it and it's all good

Good luck and best wishes to both of you! I quit a three pack a day habit "cold turkey" on Sept 1, 1985 and have not had a puff since! It was a tough thing to do but it was the right thing to do!

Cheers!
