    I saw the other thread. So, is more admin-work going on, because it takes a game of Minesweeper's worth of time to load threads... :confused:

    At the time you posted, the site was undergoing one of it's regularly scheduled "admin times". ;) Database backup, IIRC.

    yea, that time was unusual since it was in the middle of the day or something and it was wierd, but since this one was at 11 PM, I figured it had to be maint because it was so late at night and I don't complain about it when I know its maint because they have to do it sometime.

    There are two backups each week, Sunday night (2 AM EST) is forum database backup and Tuesday night is site files backup.

    Birdjaguar: it doesn't usually take that terribly long. Maybe just read a chapter. ;)

    Perhaps, but a good book will capture me for a while. I'm just starting the sequel to Aztec.
