I made a post in one of the pen forums where I said that I was glad the forum was back and hoped it would last.  I see that that was on April 29th.s :yikes: It dropped again later in the day.

 

Hopefully it really is back for a good long time now.  I missed it.

I can't thank you guys enough!

What do you do for a living (when you're not working here)?

I don't know what to do when you're not here!!

What a pleasant surprise! I woke up this morning (Monday), thought I'd quickly check before getting ready for work... And YAY, you're back!

Now I'm running late, but very happy.

Thanks,

There's nothing like a week in another FP forum to make you appreciate this one.

 

Thanks for all the hard work getting things back up.
