    It took a lot longer than I had expected it to... I couldn't switch the nameservers to our new ip until 3 this morning.

    There's a bunch of tweaking and optimizing to do today to speed things up. There are also a few things (like the chat room) that seem to have broken during the migration.

    Otherwise it looks like most everything survived the move.

    Some ISPs cache DNS information so that may goof things up for some people for a day or 2 until the ISP cache expires.

    It was horrifying !! All I did was turn my clocks ahead one hour and I must've affected the space/time continuum which in turn wiped out the BrownCafe.

    It was scary. I woke up with no place to go and nothing to do. The Sunday paper, although thick, was not an enticement. I felt like Jackie Gleason as the Poor Soul !!

    I managed to kill a couple hours by making some soup....keeping hands busy by cutting up stuff.

    Now, the door is open again......Alice is coming through the looking glass........:happy2:

    25-point checklist for new-car test-drive

    Bankrate Canada - By Russ Heap
    Buying a new car without a thorough test-drive would be like getting married before your first date: Use this checklist to make sure you have some real-world experience before making that big commitment.

    In both cases, the better prepared you are for the initial encounter, the more beneficial it will be. To help assure your new-car purchase is a match made in heaven, use this 25-point checklist to make sure you have all the bases covered.

    Over mentioned Lady Gaga's tape.....here's an excerpt about her newest......She's not a good role model for teens!!!!!

    Directed by Jonas Akerlund, who also helmed the singer's "Paparazzi" video, the nine-and-a-half-minute clip begins with two bra-flashing guards escorting Gaga to her prison cell, as an audience of incarcerated girls looks on seductively.
    Once she reaches her destination, the officials strip the New Yorker to her pants, prompting one to say: "I told you she didn't have a d---," referring to rumours that Gaga was born a hermaphrodite.
    Eventually, Gaga is bailed out of the jail - courtesy of her partner in murderous crime, Beyoncé.
    The wacky blonde rides off with her pal, but not before Beyoncé tells off her accomplice: "You've been a very bad girl. A very, very, bad, bad girl, Gaga."
    In a later scene, Beyonce flashes her breasts at a man in a diner before spiking his drink with poison while the unsuspecting man - who committed the cardinal sin of eating all of her honey - has his back turned.
    After he collapses dead on the table, a ruthless Beyoncé tells his corpse: "I knew you'd take all of my honey, you selfish motherf-----."
    At the end, the deadly duo drive off in a bright yellow Chevrolet Silverado SS - the truck the bride drives in "Kill Bill: Volume 1" and loaned out by Kill Bill director Quentin Tarantino - as police appeal for their whereabouts.
    Gaga said the clip was inspired by Tarantino's work.
    "There's certainly always a hidden message in my music videos," she said.
    "But I would say most predominately, I'm always trying to convolute everyone's idea of what a pop music video should be."
    Gaga will perform at Auckland's Vector Arena again on Sunday.
