Well at least there are quite a few of us that now know of the facebook back up plan. Maybe (just maybe) some day in your spare time Marko, a sticky or something about the facebook alternative can be put in place for those around the world that want to connect in an althernative/emergency method.


Just a suggestion....

So far, "blogs" "community" "search" "quick links" and fonts, sizes, and colors don't work (unless you know the code as Hazel pointed out).

I'm very fond of the "quick links" but I'll just have to remember to use Today's Posts tab for now.

So far, so good Marko! Thank you for bringing our community back together again!

malware messages are gone for me on both firefox and IE.
Google did say that it may take a bit of time for the message to be totally gone... so hopefully it will be gone for everyone tomorrow.

Thx- -Marko

I have been getting the malware (red/black) page since Friday, so I am glad it's back up. I also bookmarked the FB page (didn't know there was one).

The only thing I noticed was that "today's posts" and "new posts" were turned around in their location in the top navigation bar.

Haven't noticed any further problems so far

And yes, we're running furiously through our anti-jinx routine...

Well don't try to sell it, just tell him that's the way it is Unless he'd like to do something about it? If nobody else is going to clean my house it stays dirty until I finally feel like cleaning it (does anybody ever really feel like cleaning?)/have the energy to spare/have company coming (I almost never have company, so guess how often that one works) etc. etc. The dogs do help me occasionally...after they've had a swim and then shake all over and the floor is soaked. Mopping up the water does help lift some of the dirt off the floor too

Been keeping a close eye on this thread just to make sure nothing wonky is going on and saw the above from Marko.

That's great Marko.

Was only suggesting and thought it would be something nice to add when you had a spare moment not realizing it would have come this quick.

Hopefully other members from other provinces, states and countries will look into the facebook application so everyone can stay connected somehow!

Everything appears to be running smoothly. Haven't seen any hiccups and my set of pets rountines appear to be functioning normal!
