CRTreedude gots it right. All the internet tubes for BF run through my garage. When pup got out, he chewed up some of the tubes, esp. the one full of foo, as it runs through tube D. He saw Foo D and thought it said Food and ate it. I am working on patching it right now.

Cool, I contacted our IT guys here and are overnighting some of our best power amps to help with the process.

From the thread title, I thought that BF = boyfriend. Then from the first post, I thought, "Gee...I don't know if they should be posting intimate details about their boyfriend like that!"

But now I get it!

I think vBulletin sucks... this other vBulletin forum I'm on has been having the same problems ever since their membership increased dramatically. Problem with table locking and queries. It's why search gets disabled from time to time. Yeah I'm a big shot web developer.

Either the server gets an upgrade soon or the site goes down. That's what my crystal ball says.

BTW it was never meant to support this many people.
