We drove from visiting granddaughter in Charlotte NC to Syracuse today. Only 11 hours, and now we get to experience another Spring. NC spring almost makes NC summers worth it! If your are up in the Blue Ridge you get the incredible Springs without the worst of the Summers!

Greger, I'm sorry if I have failed to reply. Bad move on my part. The past year has been madness at a level that few of us ever have dealt with. In some ways, it is worse than anything I faced on battlefields. That’s no excuse. Will try to do better.

RR runs on UBB Threads, which is not freeware and it was several upgrades past due, which is why it took so long to get it working again after the move. The site runs on a dedicated server, not a web hosting service, which it always has. Not the cheapest way to do it, but it allows more flexibility. Most my websites run on dedicated machines, especially Capitol Hill Blue, which uses a separate database server.

I've tried to avoid that over the past 26+ years but may have to consider some help in the future. If you notice, ads no longer appear on RR. Most major ad companies consider political forums dangerous territory and make it clear that their ads cannot appear on such forums. Let me think more about, but thank you for the offer. Others did offer when we were offline, but I was able to get it back and running without financial help. Let's hope I can continue to do so.

No worries, Doug, we don't have a lot moderator issues these days and there are none currently that need addressing.

You've done a beautiful job re-assembling the page and I'll certainly give you a shout if anything I can't handle comes up.
