Red face MercedesShop down

Oops...

The MercedesShop website was "off the air" for awhile.

My apologies!

All I can say is...
Thank goodness for backups!

A "minor glitch" in my web control program deleted the entire website.

We would have only been down about 30 minutes but unforseen complications set in.

I do automatic backups daily so I knew we wouldn't loose anything. Royal PITA

Bill, are you insured? I fear for your safety if the site were to go down for good

Up until today, I couldn't imagine the words "minor glitch" and "deleted the entire website", being used in the same sentence.

At the risk of sounding risque.... Thanks for getting it up so quickly!

(aaw, hell....who am I kidding...I wrote it that way on purpose)
