Grrrrrr

Just as I got to the end of a massive Activator Submission!

Server Error in ‘/’ Application.

Try it again, it should have saved what you`ve already done.

Phew!!! Thanks chaps!

For a moment I thought you had become a PolarBear.

Log in again and try to enter the activation, everything entered so far will be offered to you as if by magic. You can continue from there on as if nothing had happened.

Some suggestions should this happen again.

  1. Don’t post possible bug reports on SOTAWATCH, mail them to me with “database” somewhere in the title.
  2. Learn to type faster! :slight_smile:
  3. Import your entries as CSV files, you don’t have to type fast at all then.

Nice to work you from G/SP-015 this morning, Rob.

Sounded like you had quite a pile-up?

Sorry Andy… I just felt very “grrr” at that moment. I’ll try and contain myself and Email you in future instead of becoming a polar bear. :slight_smile:

In reply to 2E0YYY:

Hey Mike, I thought the weather was really going to be prohibitive today - but went for it anyway. Glad I did - it all worked out OK in the end. Occasional rain and mostly strong wind but the new homemade mast held out very well indeed!

Weird, isn’t it? Some days they pile up all over the place and then other days you can’t get a contact for love nor money! Today was the former though. I hope it sounded like I was in control, although I can assure you it was only superficial!

All the best,

Rob, G7LAS
