    Search issues...

    Our host decided to install critical updates last night without informing us ahead of time. We realize the search function may not be working properly and we will address this later today. The site will need to be taken down temporarily in order to fix this and due to time constraints there may not be a warning before this happens. The plan is to do this around 12:30 PM ET today but this may be later in the day.

    FYI

    Server has restarted and search should now be working again. If there are any issues, please let us know here.

    The server seems a little slow right now - will keep an eye on this.

    THANK YOU! for your service.

    Seems like things are getting worse on the tech front, especially around 11:06 PST most nights.....any reason for optimism?
    The vigor of a society is directly proportional to its capacity to conduct difficult conversations.

    VICTIM CULTURE IS WRECKING A LOT OF IMPORTANT THINGS, TO INCLUDE GUTS AND RESILIENCE.

    The server does a back up every night at 2 AM ET which usually last for 20-25 minutes. The site is fairly unresponsive during this time. This is normal and will continue to occur. I may see about pushing it forward an hour or so to affect fewer people.

    Could you do it earlier? It's around 6pm my time, when I'm most likely to be on, and it bugs me. I have to go on Facebook and other sites to get into arguments with strangers.
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I've actually had multiple requests to inconvenience you at every opportunity. I've even been offered money to do so. I'll have to think about this...lol

    If you cut me in on it, I can pretend to be very inconvenienced by it.
