I am not a computer expert. What happened to the board today? I tried to get on at about 8 or so…and just now got on. It’s about 3:30. I see nothing new has been posted since shortly after 7 am today. I have been jonesing sooooo baaaaaaaad…

Just got an answer…I emailed Tuba, and she just got back to me. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one to email. Darn Y2K fixes. Oh well. At least it’s up now. Slow, but up.
Well, that’s a relief. I thought I’d been cut off by a “higher up” at work! LOL

Well thank goodness we’re back online…whew…i was getting really nervous…::heads to pharmacy to refill Valium scrip::
“Love given when it is inconvenient is the greatest love of all. Kindnesses that are shared at a high cost to oneself are the most dear.”
Don’t know who said it, but I like it.
Good to know I’m not the only one who thought that maybe my boss was on to me and cut off my connection to the Straight Dope.
This happened a while back that I couldn’t get on for an entire day. I went berserk!
It’s embarrassing how dependent I’ve become on reading the posts. I felt like a crackhead, scrounging computer to computer for a fix…
I also enter the ranks of the paranoid: I was sure our IS person had cut me off after checking the logs and seeing how much time I spend connected to this site!
Wow! Good to hear that others are as paranoid at work as I am. I was convinced that I had been blocked from this site. I spent most of the day in a cold sweat. Sad, isn’t it?
I feel like Barbarino on that episode where they were all pretending to be drug addicts:
Gimme DRUGS! Gimme DRUGS!
Yes, I watched Welcome Back, Kotter. Not proud of it, but there it is.
You guys think YOU’RE bad. As soon as I figured out the board was back, I almost wrote the Gosspel of Sealemon: “Yeah, and on the 12th hour, the holy SDMB hath risen. Rejoice!”
If nothing else, it woulda made a killer tax break.
You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.
Oh, Christ, was I getting paranoid. Allow me to explain:
First, my college’s computer center closed the Macintosh lab, my favorite. There was a big sign on the door just saying “closed until further notice”. I couldn’t use the G3s! I was stuck using Wind-blows!
Then, I tried to check in between classes this morning, and I couldn’t! I thought that someone was out to get me!
But, now the SD is back up, and the Mac lab is open again, too. It turns out they were just having electrical problems.
I just read this thread…I too thought I had been busted!
I waited all day for the summons from my boss…and I couldnt even ask anyone about it!
I’m glad I’m not the only one…
