Exciting day yesterday, huh? Apparently some people have nothing better to do than just sit around trying to create viruses. Even when they have nothing to gain from it the seem to like to do it just to disrupt websites. Our server host got hit by something yesterday. They got pretty lucky. Out of all of the sites they host it only affected eight sites. Unfortunately ours was one of them. Jason did a great job getting everything back up and running.

Someone said we lost a few of the most recent posts. I don't know exactly which ones they were but they are not retrievable. If you have a post that got hit, please feel free to post it again and let's get it back in discussion.

So... Now the big question. As you can tell we are back to a generic layout. Some people have said they like this one better. So let's take a quick vote here> The question is would you rather keep this layout even though it doesn't match the site?

I guess I am a creature of habit. I had grown accustomed to the other layout. I really liked the eagle bus siding look. I will work with whatever.....

I kind of liked the old format, but that is probably alot of work for you guys. Yes, we did seem to lose some posts, even PMs, but it could have been worse. Thanks for keeping us posted. :D Manny

I like the old way, but I have driven the same colored pickup for 25 years and have worn Levis all my life and will probably be buried in them. My wife says I have no sence of adventure. If I get out voted I will adapt.

Another strong vote for the old style. I have a computer with a huge screen and the sentence goes about 12 inches. Just plain hard to read.

Says he who can't find the time to get my own site set up for fixed width :D

Personally, I like the matching site for the boards (so it doesn't look like another website). . .but like a few others, I prefer no change (which is why I still ride a foot clutch Harley as opposed to the new-fangled hand clutch models). Either way though, it's still an excellent avenue of communication, which is really the bottom line.

By the way, we're heading for the Yuma Foothills this weekend(Friday-Monday)--if there's anyone still out there, drop a line!
