    2. don’t know

    3. Yes!!!!! Otherwise I’d be the CFL pool Champ!!!! Cost me my job in fact.

    4. Didn’t know I could pass the site on to other people. Thought you had to be part of the clique.

    5. Don’t know

    6. Can’t think of any right now… but I’ll let ya know

    Thanks for the feedback. I didn’t know there was a problem until I started to check the site from work. I found if I checked the site from 30 minutes past until a few minutes before the top of the hour approximately, it was up. But otherwise in the first half of the hour it was down. I did some changes to keep the site alive, but I don’t know what was going on here. Let me know if you see any of this wierdness still or if you problems have subsided.

    Anyway, I plan on moving to a hoster instead of doing it myself and/or changing my ISP so it should be fixed either way by the new year.

    1. I would occasionally have problems getting on the site. Maybe once every 5 tries. I didn’t notice if it was a time thing or not. As Jim said I just waited and tried again later and I usually was able to get on.

    2. I didn’t know there was any downtime.

    3. Only once that I recall. I just emailed my picks to you until I was able to access it.

    4. No.

    5. Probably a little quicker.

    6. Can’t think of anything.
