As a greenhorn, I wasn't sure what the normal load times were around here were, and when I started timing out (even at work on a T1), I was afraid I'd have to give up on this wonderful site. But we're back (I humbley include myself), and I can get back to the cattle drive and hangin' out in the forums. Thanks, rick
I felt terrible when I couldn't log on to JavaRanch. Everyday when I get to work, I first log on to the Ranch ( even before checking my emails ). A hot cup of coffee and a few refreshing messages at the Ranch should always be together. When I saw the blank forum pages, it was almost like somone cleaned up my savings account. Believe it or not, the Bartenders and Sheriffs exchanged over 30 emails in less than three hours trying to figure out what went wrong. I also sent out an email message to the users about the technical difficulties. Apparently the hosting company had some server problems. I'm so glad its back online. Phew!!

Hi, I don't post many messages, but when I couldn't get on to read the forum, I was also very shocked, thinking the University had got onto me and made the route block all javaranch (boohoo) But, alas, Your back! Stuart
