Site offline late Thursday, March 13

I wanted to give you a heads up that the forum will be offline for about an hour later today as we move to a new server. At about 10 PM (EST) (or 03:00 GMT) we will be offline for about an hour. Once we're back and running smoothly, you should see faster page loads and more stability. Thanks in advance for your patience

Note that she wrote "10 PM (EST) (or 03:00 GMT)", so that will be at 11 PM (2300) for you and me.

Yup, but we are currently in Eastern Daylight Time, not Standard Time. EDT = GMT -4; EST = GMT -5. She wrote "03:00 GMT", which is +5 hours of 10 PM EST, not of EDT. Might have been a typo.

I am sorry, and I do apologize, but I cannot be without this website for an hour.

This will cause me very much mental stress and if it goes offline for that long, I may be forced to use sharp measures.

You will force me to play with my cats, read a nice book, write in my journal of how mean you are, clean my bathroom, play-wrestle with Azia, call Carl and Laki, work on a new song on my guitar, write letters to my family and some of the Catina crew and my Gizzi, eat some candy, or worse, join a Russian bride chat room.

I hope the management of this website understands how horrible this is for some members. I may become emotionally scarred for the rest of my life.

That was funny, yes? HA!!

I'll be looking forward to the nice changes. Thank you so very much!

With love,
~Cat

I agree. Either way, I'll be sleeping by then. 5am comes early.

Thanks for the warning Janet. With the schedule I keep there's a good chance I'll be one of the early ones to test drive the site. Looking forward to faster/better.

Who will pay for my withdrawal medicine and treatment? This is terrible. It is just fine if I am away from this website while going to school and attending to DA, but how dare you go offline!

I don't have any double standards either, HA!

I can sue this website for this. I looked up reasons for marriage dissolution, and I can sue for alienation of affection.

I'm sorry, this is too much fun. My dumb sense of humor is just hard to hide sometimes.

With love,
~Cat

I would be watching the show on the History Channel, if I had a TV.
