    All I can say is "I am a motorbicycling addict".

    I check the site at least two dozen times while working on the moondoggy project. The first thing this morning, I checked in, and we were back.....praise the Lord!!!!!!

    Man cold turkey is never fun, by last night I was mean as h3ll and first cursing the site then pleading with my computer to just give me the front page; then I'd try to visit from another computer; then I tried from work. By the evening y detox phase was pretty much through and I told myself I might b able to live without the forumNow this morning Its back and I can start my addiction over again.

    I second that everybody! I can't believe how addicting this site has become. I was beside myself last night when I couldn't get on. First I thought it was my computer. Then I figured it must be other problems. Man, was I glad to see it back up and running this morning.
    Thanks, for everything you do Paul!!!

    I said a while back that this site needs a government warning lable about addiction.
    I come darn close to quiting my job yesterday. I went into work for a few hours and tried to get on the forum. I was certain, certain...that my company had blocked it because I could get on everything else. I was close to calling the IS geeks then my boss and telling them what they could do with their job. Instead, I came home early went to my computer and "Oh, Lord, it wasn't them afterall"
    I'm serious...I came very close to loosing my job yesterday...I've got to get a life.

    Yea I got scared yesterday. I've been hearing about dedicated sites in the internets that went down,nothing was backed up and years of memories were simply gone with the wind. I'm glad this site is back up and most of everything has been recovered!

    Shame shame, shame. (picture me rubbing my left index finger over the top of my right one) There should be some punishment involved for going to that, Gasp, other place.
