We're back on the air after probably the longest site outage in GN history.  The server seems to be working again after whatever went wrong.

David's latest lesson and this week's newsletter may be a little late as a result of all this.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

No problem, meant I actually played my guitar for the first time in two weeks.

At least we're back now.

No problemo, Paul. Bob got to play guitar, Joe drank milk and I washed dishes.
Did anyone else do anything constructive? ;D

I learned the "correct" way to change the strings on my slothead tuners for my Fender Toronado.

I cleaned up my apartment, played quite a bit and it still didn't help ward off my GN cravings.  :o

Woooo Hooooooo *Pet goes wild*

Don't ever ever do that again - bad GN!

LOL@Joe - cool milk.

At first I thought I'd trashed my computer again, 3/4 days with no GN - man I missed you guys.

Glad to see you back.

big hugs Pet.

I cleaned the windows, and then cooked dinner (pasta in sun-dried tomato with chicken fried in the wok with Italian seasoning cos I know David likes to know). Then Kathy and I went to see a local covers band down the pub.

Best,

The links to GN, resident on my various computers, seem to have been hijacked by something called eskimo.com. Has anybody else experienced this?

Hey Paul, glad to see the #1 guitar site back online again.  Seldom do I log on to GN from my home computer.  Yet I could not resist and wanted to learn some more.  Lo and behold I could not log on.  "Now what am I going to do" I thought.  After hitting refresh and trying to log on to my home email and back to GN to see if it was just the GN site, I had a plan.  I flipped on my cd player, got out a music book (the Clash) and started jamming.  That lasted about 2 hours.

Then I tried logging back on to GN.  When I could not get in I shut the computer down and started reading some music theory.  So, all in all, the "downtime" actually let me do some things I should have been doing anyway.  Nevertheless, I'm so glad to be back here chatting with everyone.  It's kinda like an extended family (at least for me).

Here Here Corbind!!

When I couldn't log on to GN I was gutted - I didn't realise how addictive this site is...

It wasn't long before I was missing all the great reads on the forums, longing for the excellent lessons by the master that is DHodge, aswell as all my friends across the globe - you guys are great.  Like Corbind you are like extended family to me.

I Lurvb you all
