Welcome back everyone!

First day I figured technical problems, even the possibility of somewhere in between me and the server. Then the second day Withdrawal. Needed my MachinegunBooks Fix.

Sometimes the most difficult problems to fix are the ones that involve humans.

I agree I think the staff should go out for a nice diner.

Yes, it is good to be back among our friends. I woke up this morning and found myself in an existential quandry full of loathing and self-doubt, wracked with the pain and isolation of my pitiful meaningless existence without this board. It occurred to me that when we get cut off, that's sometimes it! No reason why. Nick, some members thought you'd been sucked up by Charlie! With no way to communicate, I am going to try and get a list of email addresses togather so maybe I can send a mass-mailing if this sort of thing happens again. Wouldn't be too much trouble to do...

Not unlike most on this site - I go on several times a day when I get a chance. I thought something was wrong with my computer as I has just changed my security settings. Then after going back to the prior settings I still couldnt get on....
