    Hi everyone, I'm really sorry about the down time over the weekend. I'm taking steps to make sure that doesn't happen again. In a way, the site was a victim of it's own success, it's growing so much that it overwhelmed the hosting and I have to upgrade the hosting so it won't happen again. Thank you all for being patient!

    Thanks for getting it back. The problem must have been a bit of a stickler, but now you know.

    You're our daddy, Peter!!!!!!

    Pardon if I'm being crass, but... do you/would you accept any contributions? That upgrade sounds expensive!

    Wow. That's almost like a DoS attack, but in a good way, LOL.
    Thanks so much for starting this site in the first place, and fixing when it broke!

    "victim of its own success" Glad to hear it was "just" that and not a DoS, actually!

    Add me to the list of thankful members who'd be willing to contribute if that becomes necessary!

    GaleriaGila Hola, y'all!

    I want to repeat something I said in a post in another thread... it just seems to fit here. I said, in part...

    And in view of our recent "crash" here, I'd like to say something. When I found this site, I fully expected to learn about art and antiques, and I have. What I didn't expect was the opportunity to learn in such a warm and personal way, and to make acquaintances around the world... learned, experienced, intelligent, generous, wonderful people. I don't get this sort of stimulation and enrichment any place else in my life.

    Y'all are GREAT!!!!!

    Peter, I missed it so much I was checking every few hours to see if running yet.

    Really tough when just about quarantined in the house. Not contagious, just needed certain facilities very close-by.

    And needed or not, at least would make some feel better if contributions/donations were accepted.
