Thanks for getting the site back online.

The hard work is greatly appreciated

When I saw the site was down all day yesterday, I had thought that site had closed up shop from a higher entity.

Glad to know that is not the case. Looking forward to more continous ability to help people out for the future.

btw...saw that your name was listed in an article on msnbc last week when all of the stuff happened with the Penske deal.

Thanks Charlie! No need to apologize! After all, it was all us users that overloaded the site and broke it!

Bet you didn't know how much you are appreciated, did you? Well, Here's my 2 cents worth. Thanks again Charlie, this site is a very important part of our little Saturn community. I guess they can take our Saturn away--but don't let them take our Saturnfans away!

Yeah! We're back up! I, like many people, was afraid someone had shutdown the site for good. I admit I was panicking, how am I suppose to fix my satty S-series with no instructions? I actually think a monkey wrench is an animal.
