    No, We had no problem... :D :D


    Yes, the gauge was down for a few hours. Not exactly sure whay, but we think it had to do with the domain name renewal. We're waiting to hear from Peter now...

    Glad you made it back in :) :)

    That explains a couple emails I got this afternoon. I was not ear acomputer most of the afternoon until now so I missed the missing Gauge.

    Not just you! Me to! They kept sending me to auto guages! I went to another forum and e-mailed Tom on how to get back here "Where did The-Guage go?"

    I am glad The-Guage is not gone! I would have missed all the good people here!

    OK this is getting weird.

    Ten minutes ago when I tried to access the Gauge I kept getting the Google home page. I was in the Gauge and trying to post a response and when the screen refreshed I got a Google 404 Page not Found Error.

    Now it is back.

    If I were a betting man I’d blame the full moon.

    All is good now. The Gauge is back on the air and so are all my Dish Network programs.:thumb: :thumb: This could all be the work of some cosmic sun spot, or possibly some little green men from planet Zzolott. I know a few got loose from my tower competition diorama the other day, but I was able to round them all up before they did any damage... uh, so I thought...:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :D But, I gotta tell you, there is more activity there than I first suspected. I'll post a few pictures in a few days so you can see what I'm talking about.:eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I was a little worried too...

    When I tried getting here yesterday, I kept getting some website dealing with precision speedometers, & other "gauges"...
    Not "The Gauge" I was looking for!:confused:

    Gee. While you were all wondering what happened to The Gauge, I was wondering what happened to the Internet altogether! For some reason, for most of the day yesterday, although I could send and receive email, I was unable to access ANY sites on the Internet, including, of course, The Gauge; so I didn't even know it was "gone." Glad it's back, though.
