    Ya, it threw off my whole morning routine when I couldn't get on to TPF.

    I actually did some work before 9:00 :shock:

    Personally, I think addiction to this site is a good thing...am I biased? 8) :lol:

    Definitely a hiccup of some sort this morning, but all appears to be back to normal.

    This site being down ruined my morning. I have a strict schedule to adhere to and it goes something like this:

    * Arrive at work, turn on PC
    * Check TPF
    * Get coffee
    * Check TPF
    * Look out the window at the cats
    * Check TPF
    * Do a little work; maybe get more coffee
    * Check TPF

    By the time all this has been accomplished it's time for lunch. As you can probably imagine, my entire day has been thrown out of whack. :x

    I hold Chase personally responsible for this. :whip:

    I'm happy to say that I have figured out the exact cause of the problem this morning and it is entirely preventable....

    It turns out that the forum was temporarily offline due to a lack of donations! :shock:

    That's right, you read it correctly. Cars need gas to work, people need food to survive, and this forum appears to need $$$ to keep running. Thankfully, I found enough money to feed the beast in order to get it to cooperate again, but there is just no telling how long the small change will hold out!

    Help feed the beast (remember, there is a paypal button at the bottom of every page)!

    :lmao: :LOL: :lmao: :LOL: :lmao: :LOL: :lmao: :LOL: :lmao: :LOL:

    Ok, so maybe it was just a network/system glitch, but didn't the nonsense above sound better!? :roll: :wink:

    Yea, I was quite confused with what to do this morning when I got to work. Theres no way I actualy work in the mornings. I was wandering around the office wimpering with a confused look on my face.

    Might take me a couple days to return back to "my normal" state.

    Heck, you guys think that was bad! I didn't even know it was down this morning, as our entire internet connection didn't work. I didn't know what to do with myself from 9-2 today. What am I supposed to do if I can't check my email?! How can I get any work done when I can't get online?! It was torture. :(
