    The site was offline for some 12 hours

    Sorry, folks.

    There was an issue with the automatic site registration renewal which inexplicably was suddenly switched to manual renewal. Since I was not expecting to have to go into the domain registration vendor's site and manually renew, our registration expired, which took the site off-line for several hours.

    The issue has been resolved (manual renewal has been implemented, and then the automatic setting has been restored). Hopefully it won't happen again.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Thanks!

    Funny how you learn just how much this place means when it isn't there. Glad everything is ok.

    I was very panicked as where my Uni is doesn't have that many people into Opera so my conversations over it are limited to Opera Lively.

    On a more serious note, when the site was down, my concern was that something nasty had happened to our Boardmeister. After all, he's no spring chicken. And with Anna's nuptuals in the near future ...

    For several hours, I was able to pursue a normal human existence. Now, once again, that's over.

    Thank you, Luiz.

    Relatively speaking. One does what one can.
