The Cauldron's message board appears to be down as of 8:15pm CT June 29th. It may be back up soon or it may be down awhile as our Server Admin is in the middle of a cross-country move and may not notice the problem for a while. If the main board is down, feel free to post here on our Backup board.

Remember, it does not know anything about your account on the main board. If you have never registered on the backup board, you will need to successfully register there before you can post. Please register with the same id you use on the main board if at all possible.

This board is on a free server and does not have all the custom features of our regular board and does have ads for all. Also, discussions here cannot be moved back to the main board. But at least we can talk with each other. Wink

We apologize for the main board problem and hope to have it corrected ASAP.

Is there any major weather happening where the server is?  This doesn't happen at TC very often.

It doesn't appear to be. Of course, Bob isn't in the same state as the server any more. At least I assume he got his wife and kids packed up and they are on their way northeast by now -- he was working on packing last week.

I know the feeling.  Gramma's not doing so well, Mom's on a trip and not doing so well, and the Cauldron is down.  When it rains, it pours! 

*crosses fingers that everyone (including the boards) are feeling better soon*

Having withdrawal symptoms here. I didn't realise how often I sneaked in for a quick peek during the day - I was beginning to wonder if the IT dept had blocked it!

You and me both.  I almost went to the doom and gloom board but have resisted up until this point.

Doom and gloom board?

Yep.  The reason I started looking for a new board to hang out at and ended up here.

There is a liberal politics board(Democratic Underground) that I used to dwell at that had at least 5 "OMG THE WURLD IS GONNA END" type posts a day.  Anyhow, one day not so long ago they had a really bad day where they had about 25 real stinker threads about how we shouldn't bother to get lunch because the looting and burning will hit the burger king before anyone can make it down to the elevator.

I decided that day that that board was a little too unhealthy and panicy(not saying that the world is peachy keen, just not the cesspool of horror and pain they paint it to be) and the rest is history.

Don't worry, though.  I won't start ranting unless you start talking about employment in the US(I did a lot of research for the board in regards to creating a more accurate picture of employment in the US based upon various government figures, including regional pictures of who has what jobs in what industry, how many people are actually not working, percentile classes defined by yearly income, etc.,etc, I'll spare you the dull stuff).

That's definitely too much (very unrealistic) doom and gloom for me. My version of doom and gloom is the old Johnny Carson joke. "World ending at 10pm. Film at 11pm."

It was.  I was on it often enough that it actually diminished my mental health slightly.  That much mental ick. 

Gotta think of a good topic for the backup forum.  Maybe secondary spirituality?

I just have to say, I am so grateful there is a back-up board! When I tried to log on to TC main board last night and it wouldn't let me I figured it was my computer. Hubby told me that the board was probably down, and looks like he was right!

Also very glad this board has pretty much the same features as the other, because I was dreading having to learn things anew and get it all drastically wrong  Cheesy

That's why I picked this free system as our backup. It's close enoufgh to the real board to not be too confusing.

What would that be?  Your backup religion if your current religion shut down?  Wink
