    Probly shouldn't be mentioning this for reasons obvious but if we haven't already surpassed - we must be very much approaching a record length of time without web failure.
    Either way - a HUGE, "thankyew" to all those unthanked but appreciated behind the scenes massaging daily to produce a site reliable and clean as this'n. THANKS!

    I agree with the thanks for those keeping it up....sometimes things happen when you speak about them. This is what I received when attempting to log on this morning.....

    I had exactly the same message when I first tried to log in, this morning. It reminded me of the time a number of years ago. At a party, someone was bemoaning the fact that they had a flat tire that very day. I commented that it had been decades since I had a flat tire. Guess what! I had TWO flat tires, on consecutive days, later that week. I don't have too many superstitions. But about this sort of thing, I am superstitious!

    Our system was hacked to set up this latest problem. Perhaps they saw us bragging. :eek:

    We will be shutting down and reconfiguring this evening at 10:00 pm. We will also install the minor upgrade to vB 4.2.2 to cover any security leaks and moving the Message Board to its own server. (It currently shares the machine with some other NAWCC sites.)

    I will post a notice about this in a little while.
