    I don't think so. The infrastructure <o:p></o:p> has become too dependent upon the system.

    Thats what I thought it was, I logged on to QRZ and my computer wanted to install a "program". I clicked "no" and continued on, next time I tried to look up a call sign QRZ wouldn't load.

    No Worries with you guys at the con.
    We all were aware of the storms that hit the DC area.
    The least of our concerns are our forums.
    Bless the folks who have suffered greatly and continue to do so because of the storms.
    We'll be patient considering the infinately more urgent collateral human concerns!!!
    Thanx Guys!!!

    Fred,

    Glad to see QRZ back on line. That was a bad set of storms - tore up South Bend, IN and parts of Ohio south of me pretty good.

    That power failure in Northern VA knocked out power for my sister in Leesburg, VA too (went out 11PM last night and power company is telling her Monday before they get power back).

    Stay safe and thanks for your extra efforts to get QRZ back on line.

    Fred, my thanks to you and all who work with you to keep QRZ on the air! When it went down it left a hole, I didn't know how to fill........now what was it I used to do??????

    I missed it. I was doing OTHER things...
    • Actually operating my rig, catching up with some on-air friends.
    • Meeting face-to-face with local hams over coffee.
    • Working on a few small items for my tower & big yagi project.
    • et cetera...

    Still, I'm glad Fred got QRZ back online. :)
