Hey all,

Sorry about the outage today! Well it's past midnight so I should say "the outage yesterday."

Some weird corruption happened to an important piece of code.  I was away from my computer for several hours so I didn't notice it until around 11:00 pm and I think it happened between 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm.

That'll teach me to walk away from my computer!  Grin Ha ha...

Hope no one suffered too much withdrawl!

xoxo
Leah

It was scary!! All meaning drained from my life during those hours....


Kidding, the outage did allow me to procrastinate a wee bit less.

Just a wee bit.

Ugh. I was sooooo relieved when I saw that it was a minor software wonkiness and an easy problem to fix. I worry sometimes about the site getting hacked into and I thought for a moment that that had happened. ...... Phew!!!

Oh my goodness!  I'm so glad Craftster is back up!!!

Leah jokes about people going through withdrawal but I think I actually was...LOL.  I was having a problem understanding a knitting pattern and thought that I would post my questions on Craftster.  Much to my horror, something was wrong with Craftster!!!   Shocked  I was a *wee* bit obsessed with getting further with the project so I ended up making a couple of long distance calls to relatives who used to knit...this may not seem desperate to you but these are distant relations who were a bit surprised to be hearing from me.  All I can say is...

I LOVE you, Craftster (Leah, community, projects, etc.)!!   Kiss  Please don't ever leave me again!

I'm glad it was an easy problem to fix.  I was on when it happened, a few minutes before 2:00 cst so 3:00 your time.  It was a little weird.  BTW yesterday was Tuesday.

I thought for sure Mr. Boo finally made good on his promise to make craftster unviewable or worse blocked.  The outage almost ruine my marriage b/c I was suspicious and kept giving him the ol' stink eye!  Wink

Thanks for getting everything up and running again Leah!

lol... i too was in withdrawel. I thought internet explorer was stuck in some wierd "show code" option or something....  all I kept thinking was that my computer had stopped letting me see craftster. It was a dark and scary time for all concerned. Wink
thanks SOOOOOO MUCH for getting it up and running again so soon- and saving all of us from going into shock mode!

Craftser being down was bitter-sweet. There were no neat projects to look at, but it kept me from procrastinating...a good thing since I had to write a paper.  But now it is back.  Yay!
