    The software system for my first computer became ineffective when I lost one of my toes. (had to reprogram in base nineteen)-----

    This is exactly why I didn't jump right in and start playing with all the moderator's "tools". I know just enough to cause more damage than good.

    I had to take a step back from all things railroad for a month or so to take care of much more pressing matters. Come back only to find cryptic error messages. My mind quickly raced to the conclusion that it all moved with out me. (Similar to a friend of mine returning home from college only to find his parents moved.) Then I thought I would never hear about the adventures of ‘The Box.’ Noooooooo. :cry:

    Eventually I calmed down and noticed different error messages. Ah! The system must just be down for maintenance. That is not a problem. After all, I killed the forum I administer at work 3 times since march :curse: , so I had an idea of what the sys admins were probably going through.

    Good Job getting things back up and running. :thumb:

    Sorry, whyme, the operation being performed was not intended to cause any downtime at all. I'm glad you came back.

    EEEEeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwww, that's bad, really bad. A really bad sign for your friend. Hmmmmm. You might consider moving and not telling him where as well LOL j/k :D :D :D

    That reminds me of the South Park where they poked the kids eye out playing ninja, so they shaved a dog, glued the hair to him and took him to the vet, so they wouldn't get in trouble.

    Not to worry Shamus! You were trying to do a good thing. Besides, your explanation actually makes me feel better. We didn't crash because of some problems that might re-occur! :)

    I didn't miss the place one bit.

    My computer on the otherhand was doing automatic checks every 30 seconds to see if you were back online.Ever see a computer suffering withdrawal?It's not a pretty site.

    If you believe that first statement I have some swampland in Arizona to sell you complete with it's own bridge.

    Been there! Done that, Shamus!

    Don't feel so bad.

    I've been working on upgrading my department's website. Part of that involves making changes to the databases that display data on the site. On two separate occasions I've found myself working happily away on a database only to realize that I've been working on the LIVE copy! Fortunately, both times I've been able to quickly recover from my...uh...goof. It happens to the best of us.

    I did miss The Gauge, though. I was at home sick earlier this week with nothing to do and no one to talk to...not even online! :cry:
