Thank you, Ehelldame, for bringing the site back so quickly!

Yes, twiddling fingers is hard work!

I know, because I was right there with you, twiddling away, worrying that I didn't really just get banned ;) and hoping that the site would come back soon.

Lots of hugs. Be glad it was only one day. I live in terror that we're going to lose a critical disk where I work. I'm not sure that we have any viable backups. *sigh*
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bow lines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

While I'm more than thrilled the site it back up, I hope the spell check feature will come back soon ;).

Can people check the spell check feature to see if it is broken for everyone?

Just pulled up this post and the spell check button isn't visible.  Just Post and Preview.

Yes, that's what I meant in my previous post. There is no spell check button at all.

Yeah, I'm not getting the spellcheck option either. Didn't realize it was missing since Chrome usually spellchecks for me as I type. :)

The spell check button has been gone for me since the forum came back from the forbidden zone.

I looked at the features and spell check is enabled but there was this warning next to it, "this does not work on all servers!".     I'll have to check if something changed at the hosting provider.

It appears we need to reinstall something and fiddle with the PHP stuff to re-enable spell check.  This could take a few days so bear with me.

Thank you for all your effort. I was sad at the possible loss of the place for the civil people to meet.

My PC all but died and how I fixed it, sort of, I'll never remember. Now it won't remember passwords but it does work.

I can no longer get emails on my smart phone, and my tablet is acting up. I've been dealing with this crap since Friday and the only reason I haven't thrown all three against the wall is because I don't want to ruin the wall.

I feel your pain.

I used to work customer service desk at a grocery superstore. I was returning an electronic item for a lady and we were talking about frustration with electronics. I commented that sometimes you just want to throw them out a second story or higher window and be done with it! She exclaimed in horror "but it would break the window!" I looked at her.....and after regaining my faculties I gently explained that you open the window first.  She was like, Oh! Yeah! Ok!   

Back on topic, glad everything's back to working order!

Thank you for taking care of all of this.

My time zone is off since the crash and I can't find the place in my profile to correct it.
