Downtime for Democratic Underground on Monday, February 26th

We are expecting to have some downtime tomorrow, Monday, February 26th around 3pm ET while some upgrades are performed on our servers.

We do not expect the downtime to last more than an hour, but unexpected things can happen.

Thanks
The DU Admins

I was looking into that a little bit back and got distracted with something else. I'll see what I can do.

I wasn’t complaining, but I’m deeply grateful if it could be fixed. If you type without contractions it reads like you’re being a jerk in the headline sometimes, and if you use them and they’re lost you look lazy at best.

18. Dang. Could you move it to Tuesday afternoon instead?

Then I'll be having cataract surgery and won't miss y'all.

(For all you young whippersnappers out there, believe it or not, cataract surgery is now done on an out-patient basis. Arrive at 11:00 am and expect to leave between 2:30-3:00 pm, seeing better than you have in many years.)

(Just joking about moving the downtime, of course. Thanks for the heads up.)

19. The most common surgery in the US, and the most successful.

I envy you. My cataracts are not yet bad enough for Medicare to cover them. Soon. I hope soon!

21. Bummer. We have a Medicare Plus insurance plan

and they never asked 'how bad'. The opthamologist said 'now' and we scheduled it.

38. Yeah, I have Plus, too

The eye doc is the one saying my cataracts aren't ripe yet. Second opinion and Medicare goes along with that.

52. Then it is a real bummer.

Although I had my left eye done about 8 years ago and at the time they told me I had a cataract growing in my right eye that I would have to have done 'eventually'. Then I went to the eye doc a couple of weeks ago and he told me that 'eventually is here'.

So, tomorrow off to 'ambulatory surgery'. Total of about 4 hours for the pre- the op and the post- then go home.

I guess they don't want people fainting from hunger at 3PM when they leave. Good luck.

I had both of my eyes done last year. After 60+ years of wearing glasses all I need now are reading glasses.

48. i had both eyes done about 5 weeks apart when i was 62!.One eye was done and...

... I could see what WHITE really looked like. TV was SO SHARP i scheduled the second one to be done asap. The eye drop issue was cake. One thing I didnt know what the second time they give you the 'really good drugs' they arent so ' really good the second time'. They arent as effective and i felt something like sandpaper touching my eye and my nose kept itching...but no discomfort at all. Even tho I had the lenses corrected for far vision i think I would have preferred to have had them corrected for reading instead.

Have fun! see ya on the other side!

You're just trolling us newbies. We know you're really having a Secret Society meeting to determine how many McD's and KFC's you'll have to spike with pot to make sure you get Hair Twitler too stoned to push the button.

Without it I'm sure that I (along with more than a few other DUers) would have panicked. I'm putting in my calendar.

Again, thank you, for all you do.

45. In all honesty,


We all probably need to give our eyes and brain a rest from the stuff we’re trying to keep up with these days. Spend some time in fresh air—63 degrees in my neck of the woods.

We will come back shortly, refreshed and ready to resume our positions at the laptop or tablet.

Good luck with those Upgrades! We will be eagerly awaiting them. 😉
