    The Top 10 things you did when TFP was down for the upgrade?

    The Top 10 things you did when TFP was down?

    When TFP was down in June for about a week for the upgrade and move to the new server, what did you do with all your free time?

    I wrote and published a book entitled:

    "Waste Might Know Enough About Water to Fill a Few Books, But I At Least Know Enough to Fill a Post It".

    It didn't take off as fast as I had hoped it would. I think it's because no one could remember the title. On the upside, it doesn't cost a whole lot to publish a book with information contained on one post it...so I got a killer deal from the pub house.

    That was funny!

    I spent my time preparing for a long vacation. I also frequented an RV/camping forum. Just not the same.

    But I think you mean...

    1. Floated on my raft alone... in my sparkly pool.
    2. Watched my son's LL team make it to the playoffs.
    3.Added Bleach
    4.Tested the Water
    5. Had the kids' friends over for a pool party
    6.Vacumed the pool (For the fun of it...)
    7.Added Bleach
    8.Tested the water with my fun new test kit.
    9. Played with my kids.
    10. Perused other internet forums.

    I got my first dose of algae in June and found you guys so I'm glad the site was back up and running by then or my pool would now be landscape mulch!
