    I know many members here are also members of RabbitTalk and just wanted to update you. RabbitTalk is currently down for an urgent server change. MidnightCoder is working hard to complete this as soon as possible and we hope to be up and running again within the next twenty-four hours. Thanks for your understanding and patience. :)

    Argh! And I was having such an informative discussion with Dood about the genetics of my short furred rabbit! LOL

    Thanks for the update Maggie, I've been jonesing pretty bad not getting my fix ;)

    Hopefully everything goes smooth for MC and he gets things up and running again as soon as possible.

    The move is progressing but MidnightCoder says that it is taking longer because of the number of pictures that have to be uploaded - over 6000. But we'll get there.

    Only 6000 pics?!?

    Who knew that our obsession with popple pics would cause a problem!

    Make sure to keep MC well fed and hydrated, MaggieJ. We don't want him moving away from the computer any more than necessary. :typomat:

    LOL, MSD. He's working hard... and I have a huge chicken stew simmering on the stove. He says the number of pics is not an issue... just takes longer to upload than text.

    :hysterical: We have such a picture addiction, I thought that number would be at least 100k!
    Maybe we should weed out bad pictures?

    Thanks for all the hard work!

    Ain't that the truth, CnB!

    Sorry to hear no kits yet... I guess they figure they will be even more special if you have to wait forever!

    Yeah, sorry about that. The last time MC posted in the Mod forum, he said that he'd give us a heads-up on the timing of it all as soon as he knew what it would be. Figured we'd be able to stick up an announcement so everybody would know in advance.

    Unfortunately, it seems he had to take much faster action than he had planned. If anybody knows how to contact anybody else on the forum by email, please feel free to spread the word! :)

    Ice cream, MC!!! Ice cream straight from Miss M! :thumb:

    *Wail!!!* Me too, GBov! :hair:sob:

    MC did say that we would likely have some glitches- I think we are getting redirected to the old server.

    I was able to get on for a short time, but no more. :( MC must still be needing to tweak it. He did say that we might get "Forbidden" errors on and off for the next 24 hours or so until all the pointers get corrected on the web. Hopefully, that's all it is.

    Hang in there, scpankow! Help is on the way!!!

    Alas... well, I am trying to be productive, and retrofitting my CraigsList cages. I'm taking pics of the process, and will post 'em when we are up and running again.

    I did that today too lol! I was given a three hole and a two hole cage when I bought a few rabbits of CL but they were for dwarfs so were only two ft square each hole so yesterday I cut a nice big, smooth edged, hole in the divider between the two hole cage to make it a 48 inch cage and did the same with two holes of the three hole cage to turn it into a nice big 48 inch and a small two ft square cage.

    So now the grow outs have LOTS more space :sing:

    ANYTHING to keep my mind off my RT withdrawl symptoms :ashamed:

    Ayep! Sure do! :D Just wasn't sure how many on here would know who I was talking about!

    Come to think of it, I guess anybody in this particular thread would, though... :)
