    Glad you are back!
  3. Yeah, right. I've heard some excuses before but a GARBAGE TRUCK? Come on Baron, you can come up with something better than that.

    Did you spill beer on the server?

    I didn't figure that the "dog ate my servers" excuse would work so I had to come up with something. :D

    Maybe you should suit that garbage/truck comp, on behalf of all the ET’ers who lost money trading today WITHOUT ET!! :mad:

    :p :D :p
  6. Yeah, Don (Bright) was organizing a 'cold turkey withdrawl' E.T. Anonymous Group - but, we couldn't agree on the 1st of the required 12 steps!!

    I thought fiber optic cables were usually in the ground, not strung up between poles alongside power cables. I had no idea that fiber was that vulnerable. :(
  8. Good point; you'd think that the flexing from wind, etc would destroy them over time.

    Makes you wonder about the whole internet infrastructure in this country sometimes . . .

    Are you running ET out of your house, or at a colocated datacenter?
