    Didn't sound like maintenance.

    (MTM would make an excellent addition to your team here, BTW). :D Pete

    Well, I do hope it's just that.

    Mickey is a knowledgeable - and very nice guy, that's for sure ;).

    MtM ISN'T part of the team here? LOL
    :D

    And no, it really didn't sound like maintenance, or else I wouldn't have bothered to post. (i.e. If it had been closed for maintenance I think it simply would have stated: "Closed for routine maintenance", etc.)

    I believe the exact message was:

    "BB/Site closed until further notice. Sorry. Brian" Pete

    Yes. But like Paul said, let's hope it's just something routine. This site and that one are among the best sites around.

    Thanks. I guess it was like Paul said; just routine. But the note there just seemed sort of ominous. All's well that end's well, though.

    Well, Mickey is running Becky's as an Admin almost single handed - has grown very fond of Becky's. That's loyalty! ;).

    Dear Blaze,

    You know very well that we don't like here postings like that, even when it's a very soft "snicker".
    Enough said.

    Well that totally sux. MtM, I think from now on I'm going to have to invoke the "Bob Dylan/Hiway 61 Revisited" rule on you. ("The next time you see him comin...you better run....)
    Bittersweet laughter through the tears, MtM. But most importantly, still best regards to the heatlh of everyone at Becky's.

    Boy would I love to see the LooknStop forum here. Based on the wilders.org recommendation, I purchased it, and it's a great firewall.
    Can you do it, Paul? Huh? Please!

    Mickey,

    First and foremost: I do hate seeing this happen. Period :mad:.

    As for hosting forums for valuable and good software: we do believe such a software deserves a "support home" - as users deserve. Our team will discuss this issue (that's the way we work over here - teamwork ;) ) and action will be taken very soon after that if we come to a consensus.

    regards.

    Mickey and all others involved with Becky's,
    I have to apologize for my seeming callousness in my posting.
    I was just starting to lurk at Becky's, and I too hate to see this happen.
    Again, sorry for what certainly came across to me as my insensitivity.

    Sincerely,
    Douglas

    Sometimes there's a fine line between enthusiasm and other stuff. I'm sure MtM understood you were not 'dancing on anyone's grave', just excited about the prospect of one good group linking up with another good group while yet a third good group tries its best to regroup and heal. I'm sure all is good all around.
