Sam? Peter? Sander? What was going on here tonight? There was 'gobbly gook' where posts should be...I thought Peter had lost his marbles with his unusual posts....Are you guys messing with the TP control buttons again? You must give us some warning...I was having mini-strokes thinking that TP had slipped into the abyss......:(

Say what?? Honestly, I did nothing. I know our host is supposed to be working on moving us to the new server, but that shouldn't be affecting the forums at this point at all. How bad was the gobbly gook??

Are you serious?? Now you really have me confused! I came on this morning..and in the system talk forum...there were 4 or 5 new posts started by you..some just had ????????? as the thread title...and some looked like weird characters, I think one said test. but in EVERY forum that I opened everyones names were still there, but the words were gone and just [ <~~those things were in their place. I SWEAR I touched nothing;) I took some aspirin, which seemed to stop my mini-strokes....If TP goes down, I swear I will come to your house and....and....(give me a minute here)...I will.....ummmmm.....FLUSH THE TOILET WHILE YOUR TAKING A SHOWER!!! (take that!) heheheh

Sounds like for some reason you got a connection to the test database rather than the real one. Which is really really weird. I guess someone at the hosting company might've made a wrong connection somewhere for a second, noticed, and restored, but still...

Hmm, or maybe the system cached pages that Peter was viewing on the test server and for some reason decided it wanted to send those to you???

Either way - it wasn't me! *holds up hands in innocence*

CupCake,

You didn't find and eat any mushrooms that were growing in your yard, did ya??? That would explain it.

That would explain the marshmallow clouds, chocolate rivers and tangerine skys;)
