Here's a direct link to where Greg just asked his question over at the phpBB forum. There are no responses, so far...

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."

The site is currently up, as of 11pm PST Friday. As of yet, it's hard to know if the problem has been fixed, since we did get a window last night too before it went back down. If folks keep getting that Admin message via email, it likely means the site will crash again, so we'll see. Thanks to all who have tried to help in this matter!

Well, I just got the PM again, simultaneous with the board crashing again, so I guess we've still got work to do.

Hehe, I'm sure most of the members are utilizing this time as an opportunity for more zazen.

We took the opportunity to drive down the mountain to the Home Depot Garden Shop today. This was our first trip down into town since last fall, and was very windy. We enjoyed the trip, and gots lots of stuff we've been needing for the garden (although we held off on getting veggie plants for our new raised beds -- it's still too cold at night for them).

While down in town, we went to the Petco and bought two baby Budgies to go with Pete and Gladys. One is an amethyst color, and one multi-hued blue, so we are calling them Blue and Violet. We now have them in a smaller cage set up against the big cage of Pete and Gladys, so that they all can get to know each other in the comfort of their individual safe spaces.

Gladys (15) has stayed aloof on her highest perch, since she's the elder, but 1-year old Pete got right in their face across the double bars, first checking them out and then welcoming them, and then proceeding with the guided tour of his cage, showing them all his toys and food and demonstrating the tricks that he could do. One of his most daring is to hit the button on a hanging sound card, which then says in Parakeet-English: "I love you!" He only does it a few times a day normally, but when he was trying to show off for the two new kids, he kept doing it for about half a dozen times, and of course they were quite amazed ("Look - he talks to the gods!"), and quickly joined in the play, although they're young and a bit doofy, slipping around the bars and so forth. Anyway, we'll let them continue socializing for a week or two, then let the kids into the big cage as full-fledged members with posting privileges.

Looks like Bob is bird people like me! (I have a Quaker)

I put a message on Facebook looking for some who understands what "clear the table in the MySQL" means, hopefully someone in my fan base will be a computer whiz.

We got a response to Gregory's initial post. So I responded with another question. Gregory also had a problem accessing the public_html folder...he kept getting an "access denied" message. If we can get access to the public_html folder, it is a simple task to clear the cache.

My post on the support forum won't show until the moderator approves it...sheesh!

If you thank that is something, you should hear her version of At Last on her website:

I don't think Etta would find fault it.

Not bad, not bad at all...
Though I enjoyed her live youtube video version even better....

:thumbsup:

BTW, Joe just told me that he advised Greg to ask our server host to restore the closest backup version of our forum that they have prior to the initial troublemaking e-mails being sent out. Kind of a "travel back in time to before the mistake was made" approach. We lose some posts made recently but such is the nature of impermanence anyway...

Concerning caged birds, i know none personally, but my son Andy has been really getting a kick out of these video feathered ones recently....

My favorite on her website is "Little Sister." The bass intro is so fine! I bought one of her cd's based on that.

Live performances can have a unique energy that comes from the interaction the crowd, but studio work often carries a subtly that often get missed in the live performance. I'll go with the studio work more often than not, but Lisa's live performance is very good, indeed.

And back to ZFI, soon, I hope.

Gregory and Luz,

The website problem must be maddening for both of you and for anyone else working on the problem. I've received a few e-mails from members wondering what the issue is, including a couple of well-known bloggers. One member thought he might have been banned! I've been informing people of the issue, and hopefully, the word will get around.

Many thanks to Dhamma Wheel for allowing us to post here. Maybe we can return the favor some day, but I hope that we don't have to!

Hands palm-to-palm,
