I wonder what's up with that?
Probably just maintenance .
Didn't sound like maintenance.
(MTM would make an excellent addition to your team here, BTW). 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
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.
Heyya buddy....been a long time....but always wishing you the very bestest....
hmmmmmmmmm so B is down.....
Hey, everyone, IT'S BACK UP!!
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.
Couldn't agree more!
Does that mean you're not getting Mickey on your team?
Well, Mickey is running Becky's as an Admin almost single handed - has grown very fond of Becky's. That's loyalty! .
That sure fits my image of him from reading his posts.
Wish more people were like that!
Hey guys, thanks for the kind words.
My loyalty to Becky has never prevented me from posting here when i felt i could be of help to anyone that needs it, and that's not about to stop either.
Always good to see you, MtM; and it's good to see Becky's Forum up and running as well. Happy New Year!
Never ever denied your valuable input over here . It's good to see you guys are up and running again.
=) he he he he snicker snicker
You know very well that we don't like here postings like that, even when it's a very soft "snicker".
Well, i'm afraid i'm the bearer of bad news
In view of both admins at Becky being sick since middle of summer, and one of them totally unaccessible, the web providers have decided to suspend activities.

And Paul, RegRun, Look&Stop and Adshield would certainly be 3 worthwile products in need of forum hosting right now.
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!
First and foremost: I do hate seeing this happen. Period .
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.
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.
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.
