    Outage

    The site was down for a while (not sure how long, maybe a few hours) this afternoon do to the site exceed it's bandwidth limit for the month. In a sense it's a good problem to have, but I apologize for not monitoring it and increasing the limit before the outage occurred


    By the way, have you noticed that the right column of ads is gone for registered users? There were a couple tools over there - Google Search of this site and Yahoo Search. Let me know if you were in the habit of using those tools and I'll find a way to bring them back.

    best,
    Eric

    Hi Eric,

    I don't think it's neccesary for you to do.
    But, this is only because each time I log-out the cookie is cleared
    which makes it far too convenient to just browse as a guest.
    Hmm.

    I see.

    Just curious - why do you log out? I never log out. It not like it's logged into a online bank account.

    Do you often use a public computer?

    Hi Eric,

    I log out strictly by force of habit.
    Guess I'll just close the browser this time.

    Try it anyway.. for me it saves time for the sites I go to except when the cookie lapses and I forget the password then it is a bit of a hassle.
