hi from the admin,

i apologize for the downtime.. the hosting company changed the ip of the site without making any mention. i will do my best to keep the site alive and working in the future. hopefully they are done with stupid hosting company tricks (for a while)

This afternoon I clicked on my bookmark for this site as usual and evidently didn't wait long enough. Went to Smokstak for a while then to Lister_CSOG and saw SITE BACK UP, couldn't believe it but tried again and here it is.  :)

 Agreed on the Yahoo forums being difficult and confusing. My wife says that about me too  :)

Glad to see the forum back on the air!  The ISP changed the web address.  Brilliant act of sabotage eh!  What a stupid human.

Thanks to the Administrator for bringing the site back. It looked like the domain name was no longer pointing to anything so I thought it was gone for good.

This forum is not only a place to share ideas and learn, but the collection of current and historical posts constitutes information, know how and technical data that can not be found elsewhere.

 It is great to see it back and lets hope there is a way we can all protect this data for others to use over the years.

well hopefully it will stay up online from no on?

i know i am going to spend sometime going into the archives and retrieving a bunch of stuff
that i know a lot of work went into.

i would advise others to do so as well, take this as fair warning that nothing is forever
and all good things come to an end at some point.

there was one set of formula's that i posted here, and lost on a failed hard drive on my puter
so i can't tell you how happy i was to see this place come back from the dead.
