    I've been trying to get to the WordPress Theme Directory and keep getting an "Ooops! We can't find the page you are looking for!" message. I've tried both Firefox and IE7 thinking (hoping, really) that maybe it was a silly browser issue but alas - no luck.

    Is there something going on today?

    Hey, thanks for the super-helpful response to my first WP forum post. Really appreciate it. It's good to know up front what kind of forums these are and at least now I know.

    I'll wait for the pages to come back online.

    That would be a no-brainer for some of us :) Did you want me to reboot the server for you?

    Maybe it's my network blocking me - hubby can get to it but I can't. Oh well. At least I have an excuse not to work on this today and go outside instead.

    *busts a lung* :D

    ... txgrrrrl, the biggest mistake you can make when posting on a support forum is to misplace your sense of humour. I understand the issue you have right now is frustrating, but if you get your chicken wings in a bunch over a response which doesn't directly address your concerns, then you'll just discourage anyone else from attempting to give you a hand.

    Unsolicited advice... take it or leave it, but please keep in mind that those who pour a few hours a day into helping out on this site *need* to keep a sense of humour about themselves to avoid going on a murderous rampage of anyone without a 'dummies' book in their hands.

    Got it. Sorry to cause a ruckus. I was just looking to see if this was a problem on my turf or if perhaps it was widespread. After a couple of tests using different networks, I think it is a problem here. I'll tackle finishing the blog at home. The most helpful post was lelandf's info. That's all I needed.

    As for your advice, well taken but unnecessary. I don't need nor care how you folks handle avoiding burnout. That's on your end, not mine. Have fun with the posters at your own discretion - every forum has it's own atmosphere. Now I know what to expect if I post again.

    well I'm terribly sorry to have put a dent in your efficiency protocol. You have a nice day, unless that's considered a waste of resources.

    Well, my effiency rating at making enemies at a brand-new forum must be at an all time high.

    Listen, dude, sorry to be so uptight. You're right, I'm annoyed as heck that my husband can get into this site and I needed to get the blog up by Monday morning and I hate the only two theme choices I have and now I have to work on it over the weekend. Gack.

    I didn't mean to ick all over the boards. You guys do what you need to so to defuse a$$es like me - can't be easy to do this all day long.

    Thanks - and sorry again.

    well, she was kind of an ass towards the end there, but I'm just weird enough to find that charming.

    don't sweat it Tex, I've been up all night wading through crap, so I'm overly playful. Come back soon for a completely different experience :)
