I don't seem to have noticed any thread about this but the site was down from rollover for at least 5 hours. I am curious why this happened? It reduces the shooting time for Europeans :(

They're afraid of you, Paul. It's a conspiracy.

It's operator error on my part. SC decided to make the FIRST challenge of DPL4 open to everyone (it's usually a Member slot) and it turned out the coding didn't like it. We fixed the POSTING part of it before this morning's rollover, but it turned out it gummed up the rollover as well. So much for good intentions.

It's being straightened out now. Should not be an issue going forward, knock on wood.

I figured it was probably your fault, Bear :) A big bear hug for you and Penny.

It's not like I "braved" that territory, I just *assumed* there wouldn't be a problem and I was wrong :-) On the plus side, I did identify an issue that shouldn't have existed at all and it is (or soon will be) all patched up now, thanks to our fearless leader Langdon and his Hazmat Response Tactics :-)

In medical school they teach you to spell it ass|u|me because that's what it makes you when you do ... :-)
