I can't seem to get on any of the different sites, its very slow and if I sit to long it takes me to an unrelated search site. So was just wondering if you all were still having problems?

Foxxi- are you having problems with just this site, or the Internet in general?

getting red boxes, like on Betweens avatar, but cna't get to gallery to post my latest finished quilt, the 3 D bow tie, laid out in a grid pattern in the style of a well known avatar.


This is a very warm lap quilt, with Thermore batting. The body of the quilt was from my cache of 2.5" squares. Some of you may recall that winter before last I reduced 6 boxes of scraps into 2 by trimming into useful shapes, including 2.5" squares. Therefore, when I was ready to start on this quilt top, it was a matter of setting up sets of 5 squares then making lots of 3 D bow ties. Now, I have only about 15 or 20 more UFOs lurking in the sewing room. Since I used LOTS of scraps, DH really approves of this one.

Also this information


"Dear users,


We have had for some time, downtime and slowdown due mainly to a new provider for our servers. This service, that we had been advised by top IBM engineers, was meant to optimize and anticipate the traffic increase on your forums and our servers.

We bitterly regret that provider choice which currently and after several days of research and development, was unable to provide a stable solution.
Therefore, we decided to leave the service to join back to our previous provider. This change will take place within hours and we are confident about the result.
These new servers are ultra-efficient and will provide you with what we've promised : faster forums, more efficient, 99,9% uptime and enhanced security for your data.

During this migration, your forums will suffer delays. Do not worry, your forums do not risk anything, this maneuver is controlled and your forums should regain their vitality very quickly.

We are still sorry for the inconvenience caused, we fully understand the bitterness generated by such issues.
Therefore, as soon as the stabilization of your forums on the new servers will be established, we will make a gift to all our users and forums. o)

Best regards,
Forumotion Team."

Sounds like a good idea to me, MT

Admin, I am reminded once again that my first DH (a programmer/systems analyst) used to call computers "extremely rapid idiots". There are times that are just like that. We appreciate your efforts. Quilters are capable of patience when we know why we are waiting, Thanks.
