Thanks Randy ;)

The site is migrating servers - albeit very slowly. (and yet again -
we're hoping this new migration will settle things for at least a
year). Should be intermittent for the next few days, and hopefully all
done by Monday or Tuesday. There's a LOT of stuff to move and check.
During that time, DNS fun and games are taking effect as well.

The CoffeeGeek site is useful, and appreciated, when it's up.
However, it is the most frequently down site IME.

Please check the spelling on the error page. The individual word
spelling is correct, but not grammatically. It greats every thyme
scene and that is far, far to often.

And the slowest site on the planet even when up. Hopefully, the
change to a new server will remedy these problems. It can be quite
handy at times.

Actually used the wrong term. Should've been "new ISP". ;)

A lot of us think so- it is a valuable resource for user reviews of
equipment, and k's view of all things coffee many not coincide with
yours, but he works hard at bringing it to us.

The weekend's here- I suggest 12 ounce adult beverages, preferably
without screw-on caps, taken one every hour 'till you chill out. If
you prefer your medication ignited, go for it.. whatever it takes.

OK, Pope Randy,

I'll dumb down the witty repartee :

We need Harmon to post to tell us CG is down?
Talk about stating the freaking obvious!
It's down half the time !!! More useful to know if it's up !!!
THAT would be NEWS, as in newsgroup.
We could all rush on over, at least those not on dial up, and crash
the sucker again. Give Harmon something else useless to post.

FYI, I'm a CG'r
FYI, I have TWO links on my toolbar to CG forums
FYI, 'Tex' is Harmon's handle on CG

Have some one take your pulse to make sure you're not comatose.
OR quit drinking decaf !!!

IF Randy were a pope he'd have to change his name to something like "John
Paul."

A good friend of mine, also named Randy, had fun visiting the UK. All the
women there told him his name is British slang for "horny."

It's more fun coming the other direction and telling a woman you'll
"Knock her up"

Or when we went to Disneyland with my English friends and told them
that we would carry a bunch of stuff in our fanny packs! it took some
explaining, that one.

There was an announcement yesterday, but the website was down.

If I WERE so elevated to such a post, it would be the second time in
about 2000 years that such a person was placed similarly (but
differently) in such a high place within that religion.. Don't crucify
me for my sense of humor. This thread is not my cross to bear. I think
I'll part this sea of words now and lead myself across this desert of
off topic discussion. ;-)


When I was in England, my friends there did indeed point out my name's
other usage there, and I told them that I tried to live up to it on as
many occasions as possible.. ;-)

I would be careful of that - normally applied to dogs on heat - that sort of
connotation and not simply having a high sex drive.

Frequently teamed with "old" and "git".
