Site Downtime

Hi folks,

Just a quick heads-up that site will be down for a bit in just a short while. I need to update the operating system...

Re: Site Downtime

Phew... That was somewhat painful. The upgrade didn't quite go as well as planned so the downtime was longer than I expected. There are still a few things I'm going to need to tweak, so the site may be down periodically, but (if all goes well) not for longer than a few minutes at a time!

Sorry for any inconvenience the downtime today may have caused...

Re: Site Downtime

I think it's disgusting that in this day and age of enlightened selfishness a man of Jun's character has the effrontery to provide a well crafted web site purely for altruistic reasons, sacrificing his own time and money for others. Not only that, but he then has the sheer unmitigated gall to apologise for taking time out to improve the site.

Jun, you should be ashamed of yourself

Re: Site Downtime

YEAH! When I read Jun's apology it reminded me (however obliquely) of something comedian Mitch Headner (sp?) said. "When an escalator is out of order it just becomes stairs. They should hang a sign on it that says sorry for the convenience".

Bronson

"A pacifist is not really a pacifist if he is unable to make a choice between violence and non-violence. A true pacifist is able to kill or maim in the blink of an eye, but at the moment of impending destruction of the enemy he chooses non-violence."
