This has been a hectic two days with a botched move to a new server (fixed) and an update to the latest version of UBB threads and a stupid decision on my part to shut down the political discussion board that has been hosting a debate for more than 26 years.

RR is NOT SHUTTING DOWN! The board is open again while I work out some problems with layout and appearance.

Please be patient as I try to work out these final problems.

I have been so oblivious lately that I hadn't followed the travails until now. What kind of Moderator does that make me?

But, here's the reality for me: My eldest sister died unexpectedly in March, and I have been named the administrator of her estate. That has absorbed most of my attention since, and most of my appearances have been drive-bys. I don't think that is an acceptable approach, but is, alas, the reality.

I relish my role as Moderator, and the conscientious give-and-take this forum represents (which seems unique on the web), but there, honestly, hasn't been that much complicated moderating need of late. We're a pretty cohesive bunch, and I think I may be the most cantankerous amongst us.

I'll try to do better, but it may be another month or so before I'm back to "normal". Be well, all, and keep RANTING!
