    Morning gang. Yes, going to be a cold one up Nawth this year. :thumb: Snow Snow Snow in Snohio.:p Extra warm here. Was awaken early this AM by an automated phone call from American Airlines informing me that my flight tomorrow had been canceled. So, I get up and call their 800 number. Lady tells me I have been rescheduled to fight XXXX ins tead of YYY. "What time does it depart?" "9:21 AM and arrives at 11:18 AM." "That is the same times I already have." "You woke me up to tell me you all just changed the flight number!!!!" "Looks that way sir." :curse: Has to be run by a bunch of Yankees.
    Have a good day and God bless all [and American Airlines].

    :wave:GOOD EVENING GUYS ! Yes Tom, the plan is working ! The more snow we get, the more AM calls the Chief gets !:D That will wear him down, & won't have enough power to send us snow !! I think Chuck was instumental in that tactical plan ! :D By the way, where is Chuck ? Where is Gill ? Glad we got that new web site for Olsens trains ! I wondered why I couldn't get them to come up. Well, so far it looks like I can go to the Diecast car show on Sunday ! Watch that change, with my partner going on vacation. Seems like everything happens when a guy goes on vacation !

    Well, be back later, John :wave:

    I was just over having a cup of coffee at the other location. I don't know if its traffic on CTT or AOL but the site has been slower than molassas in Feb. for me. I finally gave up trying to post on the coffee pot and moved to the caboose. Anyone else having problems this afternoon and evening?

    Roger and John,

    It's not just the CTT site, I think it is most of the internet. I have been having problems most of the day at work with many sites.

    It must have a bug or something. Keep your Norton on

    :wave: Hi Chuck ! I don't have Norton or anything. I might have McAffee. Don't know how to work it though. What do you have Chuck ? Tom said to turn on your Norton, does that mean you buy these programs & they aren't on automatically ?

    John, Most new computers have some type of system. I have SymantecAntivirus ware. There is usually a little icon in your lower toolbar. It has been a little slower today. I think the traffic has been heavy.

    check for free down loads and also a spy ware down load, that may be your problem.

    Gil makes a very good point. What kind of computer do you have and how old?

    John, I just ran a speed test on my computer and the whole internet is slow.

    What's wrong with yours?

    I've McAfee and Spyware from AOL and whatever the Windows updates package 2 added and the fixes Microsoft puts out at least monthly. What I found helps sometimes is to dump the temp. files and cookies, I usually do this on Saturday afternoons. The one drawback is having to resign in on everything when you first access after cleanup.

    See y'all tomorrow.
