Arrow SLU Site Maintenance

I will be taking the site down briefly this evening for some maintenance at approximately 11 pm ET. It will probably down for 15-30 minutes for an update.

Scared me silly that did!!

After recent upsets, I was like oh no no no Cris - you aren't shutting it down???!!!

Sooooo happy this morning (here in UK) to see it back - yay
(And Sal too - woohoo... now really hoping Pancake will be back again soon - so sad if the fallout from that (insert naughty words here) takes her away for good.)

And just need to say, love this forum, think it works so much better technically than anything else I know, and think Cris, you are doing a great job. Thank you!

Hugs all around - Cris and all of you make this a fantastic place to hang out.

Cristiano, as far as site performance, I think the Dogs Are Weird thread needs to be closed and probably a new one started. We have (by we I mean 90% me) posted gifs all over that thing and it's mostly unusable.

I'm very sorry and I'm ready to accept responsibility for my actions.

Oh you still need a little uranium.. and to hold your computer close to your body while lying in the fetal position. Probably a good idea to get an MRI scan once you've resolved any paradoxical drama.. just to be on the safe side.

I've been having a bad month internet service-wise... wasn't sure if it was my routing tables getting all screwy again or SLU earlier today.

Pfft. Sure, if Cris wants to use an antique! Side effects of using a flux capacitor include death, unwanted desire for odd fruits and inserting the letter H into names.

The site is slow as molasses this morning. And that's since maintenance? Is it just me?

Maybe it's one of those 'the more we use it the faster it will get' things?

If it's something that requires a hot cash injection, I'd imagine we can collectively help out. I'm a bit short on funds, but I do have some L$ around. SLU's a special place, and I'd like to help keep it (and Cris = going.
