    It's a computer. They go down from time to time. Seems to be working fine again now.

    It went down a little after 1-2 AM CST. I think.

    I just figured it was some routine maintenance, or something like that.

    I just went other places & checked once in a while to see if it was back.

    Looks like it came back around close to 11AM CST.

    Glad it was not something too bad & back again. I was right in the middle of a long topic & couldn't bring up the next page to finish it & now I can.

    Thanks! to those who brought it back online!

    Tough way to start the day as in "no castboolits" I think it is easier to skip the coffee
    Sometimes it takes a second box of boolits to clear my head.

    Amen Jeepy... first thing in the morning, prayer and read., then coffee and CastBoolits... seems unnatural to do one without the other...

    Wow. I thought my tired old East German surplus computer had finally given up it's ghost.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes. However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Never pick a fight with old people. If they don't think they can win, they'll kill you.

    Should we be concerned that the CB site is Not Secure ?

    Only if you are doing financial transactions thru the CB forum. Like credit/debit card numbers, bank acct. numbers, etc. being shared...

    Otherwise, IMO, it is not a big concern.

    please schedule these unavoidable down times later in the morning. Some of us are in the reading room as part of the morning routine and rely on this site to facilitate things

    Seems we all got it bad LOL. There have been a few other times it was down briefly but it's back up in no time.

    May apply to computers, too. Happy it was a short outage.
