A silly little thing called a Leap Year

Do you remember the disaster that was supposed to befall us in Y2K? The crisis when the millenium change would make mush of all our computer systems? Didn't really happen...but, I'm not convinced that ALL bugs were taken into account. The Leap Year, Feb. 29, 2008, got the best of us. Our database shut down, bugged out, slept in, took the day off on Friday and created havoc for our users. Thanks to those of you who wrote in. Our website, www.genplususa.com is back in business and hopefully all bugs are worked out. If you encounter any problems, please let me know right away or email info@genplususa.com.

There was also a problem with our subscription service (we use Feedblitz, which is an excellent service), but you may have received a few posts titled "403 message" or "403 error". When you click on the link, you'll get to this blog, but hopefully that is now resolved as well. If you are still getting the error message, you may have to log into your Feedblitz account and double-check your subscription.

As you probably know, on Leap Year you are allowed to ask out a fella. I was going to ask out the fella who runs our data server...but...ya know...that was before the whole system shut down. I think I'll wait another 4 years or so. See how we do when we hit 2010 first. Then, maybe I'll give Feb. 29, 2012 a shot.

Update from Gen Plus central! We seem to be running just fine again. Even the subscriptions seem to be going out without error messages. Keeping fingers crossed. Let me know if you encounter any problems.
