Sometime after you switched servers I was unable to post. When I attempted to post my password was not "correct". Attempts to have my password e-mailed to me failed because there was "already an account on the e-mail address" or something like that.
I e-mailed you folks once, waited 24 hours and e-mailed again, waited another 24 hours and e-mailed once again. That was almost a week ago and no one has answered my polite requests for help.
I finally logged a new User Name to a second screen name and got back on that way.
I enjoy this site but feel that the complete lack of any response was wrong.

I have run a website as a volunteer for a non-profit organization, and I can tell you from experience, it is a hard and mostly thankless job. The time that most people spend surfing the web or watching t.v.; you spend writing HTML code and answering e-mails. The site I ran was no where near as big or complex as this one, and I cannot even comprehend how much work goes into this. This must be a second full time job for Jason. I know I couldn't do 1/10th of the job he has done and challenge anyone to do better. Look at the number of users and the numbers of posts that this site processes. I attended the PowerStroke Get Together that Sid McAllister coordinated and it struck me that all this took place because one man cared enough to make a website about our trucks and let us take part. I think this is all really amazing for what amounts to a one man show. I don't meant to take anything away from the other moderators, they all do a good job as far as I can see, but this is Jason's baby, and a hand full at that. I know that this site is an important part of the day for a lot of us, but it is still a volunteer, act of kindness by essentialy one man. If I don't get a response from a commercial site within a few days, I get upset, but I think that this is a pretty good thing here. O.K., I'll get off my soapbox now!
