It's me the bad old howling hound. Every time I post anything over the past few days then within minutes the forum server(s) crash from overload. I must shut up and not post until the IT team at Ridge can figure out what really is wrong, but I'm pretty sure if I just keep quiet things will be good.
This all started when I posted under the American Idol thread a link to a YouTube video of an old timer country singer. It was in reply to someone that like me that just can't stand the SKREAMING singing of *&&%^$#@^*( songs on that show. I'm an old fart hound that happens to like olden day music.
I'm gonna try hard to not post much if at all for a few days and hope that helps out this forum.
