    know exactly which utadpe you were speaking of that crashed your site, and rest assured that you certainly were not alone! That particular utadpe happened to be what you could call a perfect storm of unfortunate and careless events that led to destruction for about a day or two However, I have apologized to everyone who emailed me regarding the issue and I also sat down mono e mono with most of them to guide them through fixing the issue on their site before it became a major issue.I hope that problem didn’t turn you off of the plugin for good, we’d love to have you!@Adam:I’m adding Tipd in the next version number. (v2.3.5)SexyBookmarks’s last blog post..

    The plugin is ellacd and is super cool looking. I used to use it on Debt Free Adventure and eJabs.com but an upgrade to it crashed both my sites for an entire day so be careful!I’m thinking of bringing it back again.

    Border Patrol, in the past, has been innovative with irreafms use and training. Some of the big names in our irreafms training/journalism worked there.But, alas, anything Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and George Bush, and Barack Obama have control over is bound to get stupid.
