Thanks for the explanation Todd.

Obviously you confronted the dilema head on and met the challenge to get the site back up and running as quickly as possible.

       Hey Todd, thanks for keeping us in the loop.  I wish I could be of help on a technical level.  When I read your post, I had some immediate thoughts that I'll share but, of course, for entertainment purposes only....

       Sleeping on it is a very good idea.  There seems to be potential for not sleeping/resting well.  A time out and regrouping is important.

       Something is going on that you don't know about - I don't think this has anything to do with your technical skills or abilities.  I think the answer to the problem lies more in the hand of another than in yours.  I think the other hand is a negative one.   Down the line from this crisis (and maybe as an indirect result of it), I wonder if an offer will come to you that might open another door.   You need to trust your intuition now more than ever.

          You are probably going to need help and offers of help will come (okay, not a stretch given I know there are some great minds here at LP)

         Oh yes, Mercury has retrograded and we have Capricorn, all business, all over the place.  The thing about the Capricorn influence is that this is when we succeed because failure truly is not an option.  All about stubboress, pride and sheer will of spirit.    The problem is that the combination can be exhausting, frustrating and really raise the blood pressure.    You do a great job, in my opinion, of maintaining this day in and day out.   I appreciate the effort it must take.   J

            Thanks Todd...I didn't know what was going on!

            Being completely computer illiterate.....I thought it was something my daughter downloaded. LOL

            Yes I was highly upset with her that evening. When I got back on the next day .....all was right with the world. I could access LP and connect with the LP family.

            No harm ...no foul....and yes I apologized.

            Have u ever noticed  how tough crow is .....when u have to eat it. Dessert...humble pie.

                  I've been curious what's used as a server. Xeon in a 2u chassis on a rack? I had a Xeon motherboard go bad when the IDE controller started generating corruption on drives. Certainly not cheap to replace. Most important thing are the backups.
