    Yesterday and today the book and reader URL forwarded to another site.

    Any idea why this was?

    The domain needed renewing and it hadn't been done. Simple as that.

    I was able to get on briefly Saturday morning, then I couldn't again. CDA had a link that got allowed me in, but I couldn't log on, although I could see my name at the bottom of the main page..it was a strange experience anyway! Glad we're back in business.

    You got that right, don't know how many times I checked to see if the site was up. Good to see it back.

    Me too

    I really missed you. That other site was really nasty - the only way out was to leave the internet entirely.

    Yeah. That site that I was forwarded to was just not fun to hang out at. At all.

    Oh, it was so bad..I finally resorted to hanging out with my family, attending church and a babyshower, and making chili. Shoot, it was so bad, I even sat down and read awhile this weekend:D

    How ironic, and here I was driving across the country looking for the college girl smiling in the photo, planning to make her pay for my misfortune. But, looks like the site is up, so it's all good.

    Any time I attempted to come here, the B&R logo flashed, and then I was taken to some random school intuition website, with some young college girl at her locker smiling at me and mocking my disdain. It was then I set forth to enact my plan. Course everything is all well and dandy, so I put the tape and wrench bar down and bought some jerky instead. Y'know? (I'm tired, sorry).

    Good thing the domain name was renewed quickly, else, we would be reading about another mystery/murder story ;) - hopefully not written by J. Grisham. The Innocent Man was awful (imho).

    It was a problem with the server rather than the domain not being renewed.

    All fixed now though :)
