and the site going off line.  I'm computer illiterate, but wonder if folks stopped copying long posts and replying unnecessarily, if bandwith wouldn't be exceeded.  I've seen LONG copies of lengthy posts and wonder if this is a factor in being kicked off the site.  If this is a factor, I would hope the moderators would delete these long copies/pasts before they interfere with the operation of this site.  If not a factor, by all means continue to repost the obvious.

Moved to the proper forum.


Far as the site issue, guys this has nothing to do with bandwidth or any problem at all on our end. The hosting company is the one having issues not us. We simply are suffering the effects of it because of the host having issues.


Gene this is not directed to you so don't take it that way, this is just to let everyone on the site know this because every time this happens we get multiple people making posts asking if the site has been out for others and I get countless emails telling me the site is out. So this is just a note to all the members....


We are aware of the problem


When the problem happens it happens to everyone


It is not a problem on our end, and not anything we can do about it


It's the host company that for some reason has been exp some issues for the past few weeks


No idea when it will stop but I'm sure the host is working on it and will get it fixed

Thank you for the explanation, Steve.  I'm guilty of E-mailing you. 

New laptop ... wondering if the problem is with it, since I'm having other little problems with it connecting to my router in the house.


I'll stop those E-mails in the future!
