- Commiserations (ouch is just one 4 letter word coming to my mind)

- Praise (for getting so much back online so soon)

- Best wishes (for everything still to be done)

- Appreciation (all round - as always)

Well said, RichT.

Ouch, Cheers for the update

Ouchie, bad time for me

All this came down as I was efforting to upload and install ocPortal, so couldn't have come at a worse time for me, but hey, life goes on!  

So it's now about 0800 in Arizona USA, and thus far this morning you seem to be running okay.  Best of luck now!

First mtGox, now OCSterling.   Next you're going to tell us you've lost all our OC$s!

There are too many online users to list.
