I'm not in the Central time zone so I don't know what you're experiencing. Semms ok here on the East coast. Maybe they were doing some site maintenance while you were trying to get on or they were having server problems. If it keeps up maybe you should post your problem over on the tech support board and they might be able to give you an idea.
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and I could say “I used everything you gave me.”
