    You don't know how right you are!

    ETA: Higher education in Oregon is...how do I say this....hyper focused on athletes. Everything else is secondary.

    Well, It is nice to see my ST membership fees going to keeping TDPRI up and running. Hopefully one day the owners can get it to where I can at least change my banner message.

    I let my subscription lapse !
    Seemed like the right thing to do.

    Oh. Yeah, that really sucks. Sorry for your loss. Are you aware that raw decaf beans are available? I indulge in the afternoons. It's decaf, but light years beyond store bought decaf. In case you're tempted...

    I was this close to ponying up to make it official, glad I didn't.

    I let mine go a couple years ago, after someone whose posts I respect and enjoy was treated to some unwarranted and thoroughly condescending treatment by one of the unnamed admin types, voting with my wallet as it were.

    Then about six months ago, the "supporter" banner appeared. I checked, but they hadn't found a backdoor into my bank so....? Have no idea what that was all about.

    Wait a minute...? That's it!

    They forgot to cash the checks.

    It’s more than likely that they don’t have enough resources allocated. My money says they don’t have enough hard drive space left and the server can’t create temp files to keep itself running. It can happen if the database file or files get too large and you don’t have adequate space on the HD. Been there, done that. It was a very bad week.

    It looks like they've brushed out the cobwebs and given the hamster a couple of sunflower seeds dosed with amphetamines and it's working again for a while.

    Those are good possibilities. I’ve seen it happen, too. Out of disk, out of work space, out of table space. :eek:!!!
