To echo the sentiments of others who posted before me...thanks, Jude; for getting the site back online, and all your hard work. I really missed HeadFi this week (especially since I was off work this week for some holiday time), and I found out that it IS true, that you don't really know what you've got 'till it's gone. Like the others, I rely on HeadFi for information, comparisons, and camaraderie. I did manage to keep myself somewhat fullfilled by buying a new set of Grado bowls from Todd, and a multi-port USB hub from ebay. Still, nothing beats spending time on HeadFi, and I appreciate the countless hours you and your team spent on getting things back up.
I also can appreciate that an outage of this magnitude isn't cheap to repair. I had let my subscription lapse in the past few months, but I will correct that within the next couple of weeks, as soon as my Paypal account has had a chance to charge back up, to help with your expenses. Thanks again for a great site, Jude...this place totally-ROCKS! Peace!
