    Just a quick note to let everyone know that we're back up.:biggrin:

    I'm not sure why that bandwidth message was up, but the important thing is that whatever the real issues were - Serious Compacts is back up! When I clicked on this morning and couldn't see the forums or any of you, it was as though my morning newspaper had been stolen - along with my coffee!:eek:

    Glad to be back! Thank you, Amin!

    With both sites down, I just went back to sleep, hoping it was just a bad dream....

    Evidently, it was! :wink::biggrin:

    Thanks and sorry, all. We did exceed our bandwidth limit. I had no idea we were getting close to that and should have gotten a warning before they pulled the plug. At any rate, they were happy to sell me more bandwidth, so we should be all set.

    Much appreciated! I am sure they were indeed happy to sell you more bandwidth. I'd say they need to learn some better customer service skills for the future.:wink:

    Many thanks for keeping us all at home here on Serious Compacts and across the hall @ Mu43.:th_salute:

    Just now as I clicked on my SC bookmark on my toolbar, it no longer took me to the site.:eek: Then I tried again via Google's search and found all was well. Opened a new window and tried my toolbar again and it worked this time. Phew! I was afraid the location had changed.

    This site an mu-43 are becoming popular sites. Sounds like "growing pains". Glad its all worked out.

    I did not notice that the site was down, cause I was "down" several days: watching motorraces live on telly (TT from Assen), dutch championship cycling last weekend in my home place. Yesterday it was really really hot here, puf, far over 30C, up to 37C.
    Mm, I wonder, did anyone miss me, I assume no one did.

    Herman, I was actually going to write a PM to you because I was worried about you, but then I thought maybe you were away on vacation. I guess you had a tellyvacation.:biggrin:

    I didn't miss you Herman, I just thought that you had had "a few too many" and just gone to sleep as you have not started any thread recently

    Please start "stimulating" a few "images" otherwise we will have to take your "crown" away from you

    Never a dull moment of late. I'm assuming we've had some more tweakings going on. A few minutes ago I couldn't get on via Safari or Chrome...tried Firefox and here we are! Then tried the other two browsers and found my way back again.:2thumbs:

    Neither can I.:frown:

    Honestly, I'd just assumed if we were up they were up, since we're all one big happy family.

    It seems to be up...try rebooting your router/clearing your internet cache
