Post by Alberich » Fri Oct 27, 2006 5:49 pm

Unable to raise this website
for two days now. Anyone
experiencing the same?
Have they played a final note
or perhaps simply server probs?

Any glitch, however minor, becomes a major issue when the Australian Forum owner is on holiday in Canada... :?

I expect all will be resolved soon. In meantime, this forum can be most enlightening, so let's enjoy their hospitality.

I was joking in a pm exchange that Rob left without paying the bill. :) Anyway, as perhaps my guardian angel over there, it's nice to see you post here, where for some strange reason I never get myself into trouble. Fancy that. :)

This situation seems to have prompted Sergeant Rock to join here, a most welcome voice of course. All the nightmares over there have already been banned here, sometimes more than once.

Sorry, Corlyss, I know you don't like this interpretation of "Internet," but Gurn is a champ who rarely makes an appearance here, so I thought you'd allow an effusion.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

Well, John, you never get into trouble in MY book! ;)

I just wish Rob had left me the keys to the castle whilst he is off enjoying himself.

I have observed how well you fit in here. I read this forum daily, although I rarely post here. One board is already enough for one man to enter data on, or at least this man.

I'm sorry our good friends at GMG are not available for the time being. I'm sure they will be back. Rob is a great guy and if he's away in Canada, you have at least some kind of answer.

In the meantime, anybody and everybody is certainly welcome at CMG, excepting, of course, those you have on GMG that have been banned from CMG. The more the merrier and the more lively our topics and responses can be.

Again, welcome GMGers. Enjoy our site and participate as much as you like. We're here to serve the great world of classical music, and we have a pub that gets kind of hot on occasion - my reason for not going there too often!

Thanks! I think I'll just make myself at home, then!

To any GMGers that know me: hello.

To any CMGers that don't know me: hello.

Be careful what you ask for, Steve, and it is incorrect to refer to the CMG that way, even facetiously, at the risk of sounding like some kind of pantaloon myself. On the other hand, I don't have any prolem referring to the other board as the General Mucus Guide. It's just not the same between the two.


Eventually we will figure out what happened at the GMG, and it might just be what I have been facetiously speculating: Rob forgot to pay the bill. But in the meantime, we are here on the nearer side of paradise, so let's not blow it.

Me too. I couldn't get in for two days. I'm surprised there wasn't an announcement on here explaining what happened, once the service was up again.

I thought I had been banned! My last post, before the system went down, was an attempt to defend the BBC from some of the criticism it has faced recently about "bias". I thought my god they must be pretty "touchy" about this in the USA.

I'm confused by all the inside jokes and cross-talk, but nevermind.

Welcome, everyone.

I guess GMG's occasionally going down is as good a reason as any not to delete the apparent "dead wood" from the membership list.

Lance,
Thank you kindly for your hospitality during our crisis. Seems like the problem (which was indeed minor) has now been fixed and GMG is back up and running.

Anytime you would like to come visit us, by all means. It will be a pleasure to talk music with a music person, a rare experience these days. (Hey, someone has to watch the kids! ;D )

Regards,
Gurn

Well, I hope it's not "good-bye" good from our GMG friends. There's room for both forums and especially when they both deal with our beloved classical music. Feel free to come back and support our forum as much as you would like. Corlyss and I look forward to seeing you!

And tell Rob we said "hello," and welcome back, too! I'll try to get over there myself one of these days.
