Geeze Rick, we've never met, but very sorry to hear this.

UBB is the heart of my site, so in turn, so are you.

I hope you pull through whatever it is you are going through.

Know that your work has given so much to many people -- not just us on here -- but the many thousands of members across all of our forums.

Fact or Fiction I just have to reply with my opinion.
Just in case it is a fact.
1. I hope for Rick that it is a temporary illness and he will be better soon. For him as well as us.
2. Ruby on Rails. Bah hum bug!
3. Ted back at the Helm? I think it would take him a very very long time to get back up to speed on this software.
4. If it is a April fools day joke. You got me on it.

Well maybe Ted could apply for a TARP bail out. And pay everyone.
You guys that are on the other side of the big pond that stands for
"Troubled Assets Relief Program" which the government is using to bail out businesses in the USA to help the economy.

1. If this is true I wish you a full and speedy recovery Rick.
2. If it isn't true, you got me too.

Weird, I rated ted a 5 and his rating went from a 2 to a 5... How, odd...

Dave DB diving somehow doesn't seem surprising at all lol...
