Thanks for getting this site back up. I was beginning to wonder if your bills were too much and you pulled the plug.

Missed it while it was down. I am glad it is back! Hopefully you have all the problems sorted out.

3 cheers for Bill!!!

Whew! you're back.

It's either the wrong day to quit sniffing glue, or ECN was gone for awhile

We were once again a victim of vandalism to Verizon (Telco) equipment. Someone cut a 3000 pair cable in the area.

I wonder why these Bozos don't realize that the consumer (including them, Families and Friends) is the one that ultimately loses with things like this.

My God it's good to see ECN back.
But I think that this failure, went a wee bit wider than just ECN, most of us people in New Zealand, still cannot use our e-mail accounts, because they are run from the US,
I have an account run by BigMailbox in the US and it is still out.
Today is the first day, that I have been able to access any sites or search engines, outside of NZ.
It is a bit annoying, but you always know, that they will return, eventually!.
Thanks, Bill, for getting ECN up and running again!.
I was beginning to wonder, if it was our shonky cabling systems, over here, probably is, to some extent!.
