    It is good to be back!!

    To Claude, Mike and everyone who had a part in our recovery! I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation to all the hard work that has gone into getting our Lounge back on line. I found out how much I am addicted to this internet "information sharing" group! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15> I kept wondering what everyone was up to.......I felt lost! But <img src=/S/fanfare.gif border=0 alt=fanfare width=31 height=23> I feel "found again"!! <img src=/S/bananas.gif border=0 alt=bananas width=33 height=35>

    Extra Super Thanks from me! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    Re: It is good to be back!!

    The difficult thing was getting a message to you loungers informing you what was happening. I'm just glad that this sort of event is very rare indeed.

    Enjoy the lounge <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
    Cheers, Claude.

    Hi Skitter

    I have certainly missed you guys. It appears that there were a lot of emails being passed around outside the Lounge so a few conversations continued.

    Yep sounds like one BIG headache, well done guys.

    Re: It is good to be back!!

    I figure this is as good a time as any to express how much I enjoy this lounge and the valuable help that I (and others) receive here. While this site was down, I (naturally) had a dilemma that needed sorted and had to go to (gasp!) the competition for help! I received my help but I certainly missed the wonderful teaching atmosphere that is given here and the warm sense of comraderie.

    So...I'm glad the site is available again so I can enjoy my lurking and learning!

    Deb


    Thanks to all!

    Re: It is good to be back!!

    I definately agree. I thought it was " the end" of the lounge as in out of business but I'm glad they're back. Many thanks to all who helped in the recovery!

    I don't know about you but I tried finding other forums until the lounge came back. I'm happy to say, nothing is better than the Woody's Lounge and especially the our moderators! Time to celebrate! <img src=/S/music.gif border=0 alt=music width=97 height=29>
    You know it's time to diet when you push away from the table and the table moves.

    I second your sentiments. It's good to have the lounge back! During the down time, there was a big "gap." <img src=/S/bravo.gif border=0 alt=bravo width=16 height=30>

    Re: It is good to be back!!

    Skitterbug,
    I also echo your thoughts.

    I noticed my favorite ISP was involved in this somehow, you know the one that starts with a V?
    AND I noticed that the date on your post was the 26th?

    V only turned on the Lounge access to us here just minutes ago!!!! I know cause I have been trying to get here almost constantly and was VERY surprised to suddenly see the familiar screen come back on at last.

    At any rate....... <big> <big>WELCOME HOME to all</big> </big> . Glad to be back on.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by skitterbug on 28-Apr-06 20:27. Left out a word......so it didn't read quite right!:-) It does now!)</P>Hi! Yes, I was lucky enough to be in by the 26th because a "knowledgeable person" was able to clue me in on the proper "numbers". Take a look at this <post#=571,245>post 571,245</post#> (if you haven't yet) because it shows a bit more about the process. Also <img src=/S/claude.gif border=0 alt=claude width=21 height=21> gave information in the "Words from on High" <post#=571,193>post 571,193</post#> about the why of it. All I know is that I am sincerely glad, like everyone else, that this place is up and running! There is "no place like home"!

    I would like to add my sincere thanks to Claude and Mike and everyone else that worked so hard to get the lounge back up and operating. My hat is off to you.
    Sincerely,
    Slim

    To all of the gang 'behind the scenes'...

    Many thanks for Woody's Lounge. We do enjoy it!

    I have come to rely on it for an excellent and unbiased source of Microsoft software answers. Although I have contributed little over the years, I certainly have gained a lot and am VERY pleased to see it up and running again.

    Thanks to all involved in getting the lounge back up <g>. And I thought I knew what Withdrawal Symptoms were when I quit smoking 8 years ago!! DNS finally kicked in last night up here in Maine, and no - I do NOT have that 'V' ISP provider..
    Now what was I working on when my support went Pooff <snicker>
    Did I say thanks ...

    Re: It is good to be back!!

    Other Bob,
    I think I have figured out why we were late in getting our passport back to the Lounge.
    I has to have been a matter of geography.
    Massachusetts is north of Jersey.
    Maine is even further north, so the opening was strictly a matter of location...location...location. <img src=/S/bingo.gif border=0 alt=bingo width=15 height=22> <img src=/S/nosleep.gif border=0 alt=nosleep width=27 height=15>

    At any rate, welcome back to all.
