Mike,

I noticed a couple of my posts from yesterday are missing. Have I been censored and didn't know it??? :-)

Someone else was complaining that he thought he had responded last night to a post. I was surprised when I logged in this morning for a quick first pass that there was only one new message in all of Avsig. Usually there are several. Hmmm.

Same deal here, missing posts, mine and John's, from the 'Mac Screen Sharing notes' thread, and the 'How do you tell someone...' thread is gone, period.

Gang: No outages I know of -- but sounds like something went awry overnight. I'll check with our server folks.

Our server man says our box went down early this morning, forcing him to go to new hardware with a backup from 19:30 yesterday. Apologies to everyone for the lost posts.

How are you posting messages from the moon, Gark14?

(Yeah ... I had to Google "Gaslighting").

(Anybody know if there's thread drift on the moon?)

Well, the lawn chairs were the obvious flaw in the conspiracy, dumb ;-)

Thread drift on the moon, you betcha, direct to Earth (I love Google :-))

Mike, thanks for, uhmmm, oh, that, yeah, that's the ticket <g>

Ya know, the later posts here should be in the Watson thread, maybe under a new heading, like 'The mind is a terrible thing...' ;-)

OTOH, I think I've found my new avatar!

OK, this is beginning to get to be annoying.

I just went to the "My Somewhat Crazy Brother" thread and the last several messages are missing.

In fact, everything posted after 1930 ET until this morning has just disappeared.

Might be time for Mike to pick up a slapjack and go have a talk with the minions running the server farm.

Seems like it may have failed at the same time again too. +1 on the serious talk with the minions...

Awww, come on Steph, you thought I really didn't know? Cat Stevens seemed funnier at the moment ;-) Take a peek at the bottom of the image, may see a name you recognize...

Btw, outa all the jerks I got to meet in those days, Eric wasn't one of 'em, he's the one who insisted I get the specific credit. IIRC the album stretched out over 9 months or so, ya get to know folks pretty well in that situation...

And I'd never think to tell you jack about guns <g> Speaking of which, among other amusing bits on 'Sunday Morning' today, there was a segment on how often Glocks have been in movies. Pretty entertaining bit.

As the witching hour approaches this Sunday eve I felt obligated to make you aware of an image that may or may not have been posted by a member. Anon is always a great way to do such things, however, it disturbed me, as the text referenced missing posts and such ... (and now I gracefully retreat to the shadows ;-))...
