Sorry about the downtime. There were some technical difficulties and they appear to be resolved now.<br><br><br><br>
I'll probably be taking the board down tonight to upgrade the software. Should take less than an hour so don't freak out if you see it down again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Praise the Lord. I thought it was just my computer having issues. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I went so far as to call my mother and ask her to try to access VB from her computer, because I thought it was just mine. I was actually relieved when she reported the same problem (Gateway timeout).<br><br><br><br>
Yeah, now I have some idea of what alcoholics go through when they're drying out. The withdrawals, man, the withdrawals... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/bigcry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cry:">

Man, I had to actually find something else to do! Although I have to admit, my 24 addiction is quickly becoming as serious as my VB addiction.

Whoa, that was scary. I started to think that maybe one of my friends had stolen my password and got me banned. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/undecided.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":-/"> Had to ask my sister to try and access the website from college. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:">

I happened to have troub's e-mail from the art competition....I had to e-mail him to ask if he was having a problem...I couldn't bear the thought of being out of touch with everyone....like, what if VB never came back up and I couldn't talk to any of you guys ever again! A little dramatic, but the idea did cross my mind! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> I tried repeating to myself, it's only a message board, it's only a message board, it's only a message board....it didn't help much.

I tried clearing my cookies and everything. I was okay for the first few hours, but then every time I logged onto the computer I wondered if something had happened. glad we're back.<br><br><br><br>

I was totally freaked out!</div>

There used to be a website for folks interested in meditation/buddhism that used forum software similar to the software this website uses (it was called buddhismboards.com or buddhistboards.com or buddhaboards.com or something like that). The owner/moderator just took the site "off the air" one day without any advance warning to the participants whatsoever. I thought that this was a bit cruel, since there are other places that the folks who hung out there could have arranged to go if they had a little advanced notice. The same is true of this website (I won't list the alternative sites here, because that pisses Michael off...) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/cool3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":cool:">

I have to admit- I did check about a bazillion times last night. It was a compulsion that I was powerless to overcome. I don't think I slept as well as I could have either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

I didn't get much sleep, either. But that's also because I'm now having trouble dialing in at home, so I couldnt log on in order to check at home.<br><br><br><br>
But I did keep checking once I got to work today.<br><br><br><br>
I actually got some work done yesterday and today. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

For the record I would never just take the site down. At the very least I would put up a page recommending another site for everyone to go to.</div>

That's because you're awesome, Michael. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blank.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":|">
