Sorry for the technical difficulties this morning that locked the site down for over an hour. All is fixed now and as a bonus: load time should run faster. Yay! And special thanks to Will at Hostgator for being so patient with me and helping get things up and running again.

Thank goodness, I was getting all panicky, and my natural paranoia was kicking in, thinking maybe I´d never be able to read DW again!!! Then what would I do when I´m supposed to be cleaning???

Haha, me too, the two people who vowed to work/clean instead of surf DW. I bet Wendy did that so we could concentrate better. So very thoughtful of her.

I was thinking of you two also, you know, in between panic attacks of DW being down.

I actually thought for a second maybe it got blocked at my job and all I could think was Nooo! Haha, terrible that I might have to do more work and less Dear Wendy reading 😉

I had the same thought. I hope work doesn’t monitor how much I’m on this site.
mcj2011 October 7, 2011, 2:35 pm
I did too. First Facebook and now Dear Wendy! Glad I was wrong :o)

Me too! I was sitting here thinking, “what if something happened and the site is gone?! How will I KNOW?!?!?!”
And of course continuing to refresh at the normal, obsessive rate.
JK October 7, 2011, 12:52 pm
Glad to see I´m not the only one!!!

Cool. delete these posts if you would like.

I would never do that to you guys! If, for some reason, I ever decide to shut the site down, I will give notice so people can exchange email addresses and so forth. I worked for a site once that planned to shut things down without telling it’s many, many readers and I was appalled by that idea. Rest assured, I have more appreciation for you than that.

Can we do weekend open thread early this week? please please please? Its a holiday so some of us can’t come on over the weekend and want to talk about random things without being off-topic. (and by some of us, I clearly am talking about everyone else, and not me at all. nope, not me. … ok, its me.)
Eljay October 7, 2011, 2:19 pm
Oh thank goodness! I didn’t know what to do with myself! Well, work might have been an option, but just not feelin it today. 🙂
Welcome back DW’ers! I missed y’all!

Ditto. Hey Wendy, we’re nothing if not loyal!!!
