Yes, actually the hard drive is failing. We will have to schedule a time to replace the hardware, or perhaps switch to a cloud server for the time being so there is no downtime. If the cloud works out, we might just keep the database there.

I don't care if this is a repost......

Make sure you read the entire email.

If you pass this test with flying colors, it is guaranteed you will live to be a hundred.

To my 'selected' strange-minded friends:


If you can raed this, you have a sgtrane mnid, too.

Can you raed this? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can. I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! If you can raed this forwrad it.

FORWARD ONLY IF YOU CAN READ IT.
Forward it & put 'YES' in the Subject Line.

Even if you are not old, you will find this interesting...

Short Neurological Test

1- Find the C below.. Please do not use any cursor help.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOCOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

2- If you already found the C, now find the 6 below.

99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999
99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999

This is NOT a joke. If you were able to pass these 3 tests, you can cancel your annual visit to your neurologist Your brain is great and you're far from having a close relationship with Alzheimer...

Congratulations!

Well, congratulations, you're not colour blind either!

Turns out the name was: "Super Buffet"

Super Buffet - Bellingham | Urbanspoon

Heard the seafood there (king crab leg, sushi, etc) was quite good. But reviews are 50/50. Give it a try while it last....as we know all of these buffets will start going downhill after awhile.

$8.99 - Lunch (M-F)
$13.99 - Dinner (M-F)
$13.99 - All day weekends
Anyone try this yet? The reviews look REALLY mixed..

ACAPULCO 6.5 EARTHQUAKE
Quote:
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck Mexico’s western Guerrero State on Saturday night, shaking buildings and causing panic in the nation’s capital and in the Pacific resort of Acapulco. Officials said at least three people died, but there were no reports of widespread damage.

Connect With Us on Twitter
Follow @nytimesworld for international breaking news and headlines.
The U.S. Geological Service initially estimated the quake magnitude at 6.8, but downgraded it to 6.7 and then 6.5. A quake of that magnitude is capable of causing severe damage, although the depth of this one lessened its impact.

The geological service said the quake occurred at a depth of 40.3 miles. It was centered about 26 miles southwest of Iguala in Guerrero and 103 miles southwest of Mexico City.

Mexico’s Interior Department said the quake was felt in parts of nine states.

Humberto Calvo, undersecretary of Guerrero’s Civil Protection agency, said three deaths had been reported in the state. He said one man was killed when a house’s roof collapsed in Iguala; a second died in the small town of Ixcateopan, and the driver of a cargo truck was killed by rocks that fell on the vehicle driving on the toll highway linking Acapulco with Mexico City.

High-rises swayed in the center of Mexico City for more than a minute, and shoppers were temporarily herded out of some shopping centers until the danger passed.

just wondering, planning a trip to mexico ASAP. What is the best online website to get tickets for all inclusive flight/hotel for the cheapest price?

edit: my family wants to see an agent (the chinese one in yaohan) do they rip people off ?? is it better to buy hotel + flight via online or in person? and do prices reflected online include flgihts or just hotel?

edit: any suggestions on which resort for mexico??

There's a sea documentary that came out before Planet Earth which also features David Attenborough that's called... The Blue Planet: Seas of Life. It's pretty neat. Not sure if that's what you're looking for but it only focuses on aquatic life.

There have been rumors about it being moved to Blu-Ray but not sure if it has been released just yet. I have the DVD's and the footage is fairly high definition.

I'll look for it online. The deep sea creatures are super cool, kinda disappointed that I couldn't find more videos.
