CR4 Down for Some Tidying Up.

06/18/2013 4:16 AM

Yep, read it and weep.

Does anybody have a coping strategy planned ? The proposed times may make it easier for the American crowd, but think of us poor Brits and others around the world. Valium in my coffee/go totally mad and play on Facebook ? I'm already in a panic as to whether the hopeful reboot time is the next day or the day after that .

Sympathy to the admins who will probably have to be work those horrible hours, but when you're catching up on some well earned sleep I'll be back .

This should probably be on the 'CR4 Fans' forum, but I may as well pimp two thngs at once. The broad question, what did/will you do during those 4 hours ?

I can prolly cope (if I have a bit of a lie-in).

Ya lazy 'stay-in bed'. Yes, a good night down the pub may well be a solution . How do I tell the noisy birds that start singing early morning ?

I tried saying, 'you ain't no Aretha Franklin', but would she belive me ?

OMG !!! Was that in you in the mini-skirt ? . It could happen to anybody, and I honestly was just going out for a pint of milk. I know, I know, I should have realized when her 'wheels' woz a Bristol Bus . I'll stick one in the wood for you, mate.

There's a chunk of bath in my garden, and anybody American who can interpret that need only forward me their address to claim the prize. Just be careful what you wish for .

I hope the down time is to speed things up, CR4 has been very slow lately. 3am to 7am??? I'll just be rousing from my beauty sleep when they finish, IT people do always finish jobs on time don't they?

Any chance the anonymous poster function could get knocked off the shelf and broken never to be replaced while tidying up?

No features are being changed (intentionally). The site is moving to a different server.

Or if not, maybe a way to re-direct them to the Microsoft help desk for a ticket number?

'intentionally'. Now I am seriously scared - accidents will happen . It's just as well you have good people like me to snail-mail an explanation to folk like Del. I wouldn't want to be in toast throwing distance of Harlow in the morning .

Interesting.

When I came on line at about 7:15 this morning, there were no images displayed (avatars or posted pictures, including in PMs). I commented about it here, and started a new thread remarking about it.

Images are now OK, and both my post here and my new thread have disappeared. Well tidy.

CR4 Challenge: Lyn was playing with the time machine again, but not yet. When someone who hasn't been born yet woke up, it was very cold and the husband was dead.

What will have happened, approximately the third Thursday after yesterday?

It may be because they're pondering how to do that 'baiting Kris to go naughty' button. I can PM you, and am not afraid to do so, ya minx.

That's because my skillful use of the LynDoor™Industries Trudy, the Time Machine® allowed some to blissfully sleep while the transformation was accomplished.

I slept through it three times just for giggles.

Ooooh!!!! Lovely!

And I've worked on this one...in fact the whole family did. Friends of ours own it and we (mostly my Dad) helped to restore it. We all used to travel in it or one of the others (LAE 13 or FTT something) to the bus rallies. Happy Days!

Nowhere else but CR4, could ayone find such bits of fun. A rare nugget of info that is well worth the read. Not getting my 'vote of the month', but well worth checikng out.

By way of swapping news, did anybody else see the recent documentary about a black hole about to gulp a gas cloud ? I know, 'get a room', but it is quite amazing.

I'm pushing it, but it might be fun to have some forum for recent breaking news. No need for it to be posted as discussion or whatever - simply a sort of 'just heard this, and you all may be interesting'. I can't blog or do a decent write-up, but sometimes hear interesting stuff. It would be neat to have some sort of bulletin board to post breaking news so that those more able could do a decent job of describing and prompting discussion.

CR4 has always been (IMHO) a bit like a bunch of folk swapping info over a coffee or beer. People chatting over origins of the universe, how do I get superglue of my fingers, to how do I get a busted gasket out of the whatever.
