Very minor in the long term.

It's a shame we lost my pearls of wisdom from yesterday, but the thoughts of pretty much everyone else are forgettable anyway.

Thanks again!

it's back to the way it was yesterday, now..... hopefully we won't encounter craziness just plain useless manufactured drama like that again.... seriously... i feel like big worm in the movie Friday "you messin' with my emotions, smokey!"

please be patient with me y'all... i'm ironing out the issues so none of this happens again... installing a certificate, a AV software, and the accelerators i mentioned took us down again tonight.  it wasn't supposed to happen until 0130... as in two in the morning.  

i didn't bother to realize the server is set to GMT.

that meant if anything went wrong i'd have time to bring it back up before anyone noticed.  well, everyone notices when it happens at 830pm...
