Good morning Valerie and sw-list members, Wow - Valerie - it is hard to believe that you find the strength and patience again and again and again to respond to all different kinds of individual problems connected to your ingenious invention in this friendly and supportiv way. Just would like to say a big "Thank You" for all you are doing for us. At school SignWriting makes such a tremendous difference. Now my students are really eager to improve their bilingual cometence every day, day by day with big smiles on their faces. Have a wonderful weekend All best Stefan -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- Von: SignWriting List: Read and Write Sign Languages [mailto:[log in to unmask]] Im Auftrag von Valerie Sutton Gesendet: Donnerstag, 30. Mai 2013 16:23 An: [log in to unmask] Betreff: Message for Michael about server issues and PersonalPuddle SignWriting List May 30, 2013 Hello SW Listers, and welcome to a new member, Michael - Thank you for joining the SignWriting List, Michael - Yesterday, here on the List, I explained to everyone that our server needs to be upgraded with more RAM, but our Internet Service Provider is still working on getting us a new server and setting it up and then we have to move our entire sites over - so we are in a transition. Meanwhile the old server, where we are right now, is still working, but it is slow to respond sometimes, and so it seems that our sites are down, but actually they are there, just slow. If you come back in 20 minutes and try again, it should work… But if your web browser is holding the memory of the "site being down message" in cache, it may seem once again that the sites are down, so you will need to Refresh your web browser… So Michael, I am sorry you are having problems with our server too… Can you access this link right now? http://www.signbank.org/signpuddle/ Please try and write to our List again and we will get something working for you today - And tell us a little about your project - I understand that you need to write documents in SignWriting? There will be no problem to do that. Yes, the PersonalPuddle will work well for you - it means you can work offline while we are having these server issues - More soon - please tell me if you can access the above link - Val ;-) ------- On May 29, 2013, at 11:50 PM, Michael wrote: > Thank you. i joined the list, It dosent look like im going to be able to make the Workshop.
