Two days ago and without warning, right when I was about to post, WordsFree stopped responding.  Matt's entire server was down, so it took out like a dozen websites and some other things.  Only once before has anything like this happened; that time Matt's server was hacked into.

The Good News is that it is back running, and the Even Better News is that all of our data are intact, so we didn't lose any messages or any of our new members.  I just got done making a fresh backup for in case the "worst" happens.  If WF stays active I may start backing up weekly or even more often.  It really doesn't take too long.

Anyway, I'm glad we're back up and running!  Thank you Matt, and JaguarPC for getting things taken care of.  Smiley

Now I know I have a guilt complex.  My best friends always tell me that and laugh.   I really thought it was my fault .  I must have written something that shut the site down, or, Alan decided to get rid of me for not following directions.  Or worse yet, no I won't go there.

When things happen, I try to notify those who actively post by email using blind copy, but since WF was down I couldn't get to some of the addresses.  Soon I will update this list so if shit happens again I can keep everyone informed.  And certainly don't hesitate to send me an email if you have problems getting in or something.

Actually Daizies and Linda Clare, we got a notice from the NSA that you were writing subversive things and were likely terrorists so they had to shut us down.

Just kidding of course.

At least I think I'm just kidding.....

Just because you're paranoid, doesn't mean they're not out to get us!  Shocked
