    Well, I guess I should fess up.

    Here is what happened. Back in the super secret mod layer, we were doing some high speed low drag anti-spammer training. And SIXTO was telling my to cut the red wire. But in all the stress of the moment, I thought he said the cut the green wire.

    Apparently that is whats happens when you cut the green wire, sorry it took me so long to splice it back together. But, in the end, I think we can still blame SIXTO. Or one of the new mods, if that's your cup o tea.

    Actually, anywhere I went on the internet sucked pretty bad for me during that time. Figured it was my IP. Well, could have been that too.

    It seems we are all hopeless addicts.

    ONLY the SENIOR Mods get THAT button.
    Rank does have it priviledges...

    Or one of the new mods, if that's your cup o tea.
    Hey..you're a new mod. I hear you and Sixto are like milk babies. We'll just blame everything on you in his absence...

    Its meant to use only in emergencies when we suspect a massive spammer attack that could include nasty viruses, or when things get out of hand. You turn the whole forum off to protect it. Depending on server traffic, it may take a few minutes to re-boot, or maybe an hour or so in this case.

    Sorry about that folks. This may be the only case that I know of that it wasnt Sixto.

    I must have been me. I think. Yeah maybe. Maybe not. Oh....I dont know. I hope the forum owner dosent fire me. I cant afford to lose the extra income...it would kill my gun fund.
    No harm done. As a matter of fact it seems to have been great entertainment and exercise of imagination for some in here. I have really enjoyed reading about it (I went to bed early for me and missed the "down"). One usually have to pay for that kind of ride.
