I was at the distributor where Rex bought most of his co2 parts. They know him pretty well there (as well as Robert Hudson of AquaBotanic and Jeremy from OregonAquaDesign). I was telling them about some of the advancements Rex made in the hobby, there is even a co2 reactor that is know by his name. They had no idea. He had just bought parts there for years. I have not meet Rex in person yet, but I have always hoped he would show up at a local plant swap or club meeting so I could.

I wonder if there is something we can do to get the info from his site up somewhere so it can still be used as a resource.

I'll give three cheers.

I'd be happy to put the archive of Rex's site up on my site, but don't want to step on any toes. In fact, I would be honored.

some one should hurry up and grab it any way before the cache is deleted. dont necessarily post it untill you have permision, but grab it before its to late.

I wonder if Rex feels a little like Huck Fin showing up for his own funeral?

I have been thinking along the same lines. We have been talking about him almost as if he is dead.

Yahoo! (that you didn't know what you thought you did.)LOL

Checked the forum site and this was the last posted update dated 5/26/10. Rex has had some problems but doesn't appear to be throwing up the white flag as some have assumed.


Ok. I think I got all the emails answered. I answered some earlier this month and may have answered some of those twice.
I'm hoping they all got answered.
My wife is out picking up supplies right now.
Assuming my hardware supplier had normal levels of everything in stock all orders should go out before Monday.

I've spent 20 days this month in the hospital. I really really hate hospitals. The food is lousy, the service sucks, the beds are medieval torture devices, they are constantly sticking things into your body in places that things were never meant to have things inserted and above all they are either too hot or too cold.

Something to remember. When you sign those surgery consent forms. Pay close attention to the part where it talks about possible dangers and side effects. Those things can and do happen. If they didn't they would not be listed.

It's not anyone's fault. It's just random chance.

Thanks everyone

It was a "I'm a moron and forget to update my billing info with my hosting company" moment.

What makes it worse is that the contact email they had is a dead account I have not had for at least three years.

Everything is up and running again.

Thanks.

Good to see your still at it! I use your site too much to just have it disappear.
Hospitals do indeed suck all the way around. I got to spend quite some time there last year as well as my wife was quite ill. Of course she also had a few other things go wrong as a result of being there as well which didnt help matters. Best Wishes in your recovery!

I was supposed to have "minor surgery" with a stay of 1-2 days.

Due to complications I ended up spending 16 days total in the hospital.

I really really hate hospitals.
