    How did everyone keep from going stir-crazy while the site was off line?

    I actually went to several other warbird sites that I had signed onto long ago. Not much happening. My son is on a military site so I joined there also. Not as fast paced and satisfying as here.

    oh, and I have a cupboard full of homemade oatmeal cookies. By the pounds!

    I realigned my 401K and bought stock - an oil company, and I'm not kidding!

    I actually started researching the North Africa campaign in detail and started creating a excel list of all the squadrons that I could find that dealt with North Africa in one way or another. Luftwaffe, US, British and Italian airforces. Its far from done and still trying to verify stuff but here is the list so far. Any help would be appreciated.

    For what?


    I did some research into social marketing on the internet and Web 2.0. Especially del.icio.us. del.icio.us is VERY powerful and widely used. If your not using it, or something like it, you probably will be soon.


    I'm also preparing my house to rent -- a ton of work!

    I pounded my head on the desk repeatedly until the site was restored. Man I'm glad it's back.

    I'm lucky it happened now because I was busy moving from one residence to another and really didn't have time to spend on the computer.
