LOL! I kept getting an error message that read ...down for maintenance, be back in 4 minutes. Well, let me tell you, that was the longest 4 minutes of my life! I wonder how many people did what I did and jumped over to theWilton site and made a few posts? LOL

I would have done both if I had noticed!
Withdrawal and jump to Wilton...... but I was too busy. I did keep thinking though that I should take a break and go on....but I didnt....
thank goodness!

Oh, Man! I freaked out big time. I need an alomost every 4-6 hr fix of this place! Especially when I am in between work shifts! Glad I wasn't the only one. I almost wanted to throw my puter!

Well hopefully the short downtime was worth it! Everyone should be noticing improvements in page load time!

Yes Jackie, Thank you, load time is definitely quicker

But...... can you just give us addicts a warning before you do that again icon_lol.gif then we can get our fix beforehand icon_wink.gif

I'm glad to see that I was not the only one that was freaking out. My husband was laughing at me because I kept trying..and trying..and trying..he told me to "just give up and try it tomorrow"...I finally decided to call my brother in law (he's a computer guy) and see if it could be something with my computer..while I was on the phone with him, the site came back up..and I was able to survive again. I thought that it was just my luck that as soon as I am feeling good enough to be on the forums, the site shuts down..I sure am glad that it is up and running again.

I've been reading this post...but I was not on when the site went down. But I have been on before when the site was soooo slow I could not get the site to come up icon_cry.gif
But now it's back and it's getting better! Jackie has added the ablilty to attach pictures to your post, making it much easier than before. Thank you Jackie!!

I can only imagine if something awful were to happen and the time down was an hour or soooooooo----funny how time drags on when you want something now and how it flys by when you are enjoying what you are doing!!!
