What exactly happened anyway? One moment it was working just fine, but it was blank a minute or so later.

There are a few server related issues, what took The Cave down was a problem involving SSL - Notice the 'Secure' thing in the address bar ? That means the site is being encrypted 'on the fly' between the server and your browser. That went haywire, so the encryption was always screwed up, so your browser got nothing. It was a PITA to track down and rectify, and I was also working on the site between my actual job, and making a new life for my kids, my GF, & I.

Great to have it back.  Thank you for all your efforts.

We use to call it slipping a bit.   :whistling:

Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.

I haven't heard a single persona complain, we all know what you do for us and how busy you are... and we all appreciate it man. I only wish I knew more about code so I could have tried to help out, but I'm completely oblivious when it comes to any sort of coding.
Although I was starting to wonder if that was "it". hehe
Thanks for hacking at it for so long.

I figured it had something to do with that. If I recall it said something about the owner.   Those problems are a royal pain to figure out.  Been there, done that, got the tee shirt.  :banghead:

Thanks Miskie!!

It was mentioned by several when we went over to CU that your job and life takes up your time, which is only natural, and that you'd get to things as you were able. I say that to point out you are appreciated. It's because you run a site we all enjoy that the impatience can creep in when we can't get here. But do know that we all think highly of you and all you do.
