Back in business

Postby ultraslacker » Wed Jan 18, 2012 12:21 am

hey everyone, sorry for all the delays and downtime! we're back!

had to prune a ton of posts in order to make the db a little smaller... unfortunately, this means the loss of some of the oldest NRR posts (2005-2006). However, we were able to retain all running-related threads and all the important stuff. :)

Thanks also to abird's hubby, who took the time to help me when I was frustrated. :)

Thank you, Holly! I know this took a considerable amount of time and effort on your part. Where would we be without you. ;) You are the Queen!

I used to count your cats as a sleep-aid but they're going too fast now.

Thanks so much Holly! Seriously, I did not realize how frequently I check in here to see what is going on until I couldn't do it. I'm happy that RM is back online!
