    On a rethink..is that a word?..I decided to mail in a modest contribution towards the 3 K cost to fix up this forum.

    Seems a more productive gesture than crying and bitchun all the time.

    How about you?

    Wasn't this addressed by the Administrator already when he said:
    I can't imagine anyone voting for #2 but we need to give a reasonable amount of time for "the powers that be" to fix the problem. Of course, reasonable people may differ on what a "reasonable" time is. I think a 3rd choice should be added to your poll.

    3. Do you have faith that management will solve this problem as they have in the past?

    I vote for #3.

    ~~ Positive Thinking, Garners Positive Results!!

    Good you and Steve think FAST. make outv a check too. That works a little quicker.

    I dont mind admitting when I am wrong.

    My doctor gave me 6 months to live. When I explained I could not pay my bill, he gave me six months more, he is a genius

    I usually solve this "30 second issue" by having some other site window up for reading. In the case of the Gauge, I have multiple windows up so I can "cascade post" meaning, read one, post one, click on other window, read that and post that. It's a no frustration deal, an 30 seconds ins't that bad really when I've something else do do with to my time! :)

    Thanks! He's four and a half now, I joke that this picture is the last time I got him to sit still with me long enough to get a decent shot. ;)
