    Tom, if you had planned it, the timing couldn't have been better for me. I spent all last week hiking and photographing at the Grand Canyon. No Internet access and, even if there was, no temptation to spend time here when I should have been burning film.

    Thanks for everyone's hard work bringing the site back.

    Having been in tech support for many years and a Novel network administrator I know the rock-in-the-stomach feeling when a network goes down.

    You keep saying it was A hard disk failure. One hard disk? Really? You don't have a RAID subsystem? There must be more of a technical story to the outage than simply one hard drive that failed.

    Good to have you up and running. Now go get some sleep, I'm sure you need it.

    Tom and our server owner deserve all the credit. Most of the mods were suffering withdrawal, too.
