Here I thought you were going to talk about the annual maintenance and take down of the Internet for a couple of days.

==========
YEARLY INTERNET MAINTENANCE ANNOUNCEMENT

IT IS URGENT THAT YOU DO NOT CONNECT TO THE INTERNET FROM APRIL 29 23:59 GMT (11:59 PM) UNTIL 00:01 GMT (12:01 AM) MAY 1.

It's that time again. As many of you know, each year the Internet must be closed down for a 24 hour period of time in order to receive maintenance, or a "Tune Up" if you will.

Many dead links on the World Wide Web will be removed, as well as ftp links that are no longer used. Lost e-mail will also be removed from the system at this time.

In addition to the normal maintenance to be completed this year, we will also be using new high pressure information jets to clear out the bottlenecks that have plagued the internet so greatly this past year.

Although the down time for maintenance will be an inconvenience for many people, you will find this will allow for a much more efficient and faster responding internet.

This year, the "Tune Up" will occur from 23:59 GMT (11:59 PM) on April 29 until 00:01 GMT (12:01 AM) on May 1. During that 24 hour period, dozens of powerful Internet bots at key locations around the globe will simultaneously scan the Internet and complete the desired maintenance jobs wherever they may be required.

To help protect any valuable data you may have on the Internet from possible corruption, we highly recommend you take the following steps before this 24 hour maintenance period begins:

-1. Disconnect all terminals and LANs from the Internet.

-2. Disconnect all Internet servers from the Internet.

-3. Refrain from connecting any computer, or any other Internet connection device, to the Internet in any way.

Note: The term "other Internet connection device" includes such devices as WebTV.

Again, we understand the inconvenience this will cause many people. And for that, we apologize. However, the great increase in Internet performance you will experience after this short period of maintenance, will far outweigh any problems it will cause.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Mr. Yuben T. Ricked
Global Internet Maintenance Organization
Department of Prankology

Webmasters and Sysops: It is very important that the entire Internet community be notified of the upcoming Internet maintenance before it gets underway. Please direct all of your users and personnel to read this notice ASAP!

Please pass this announcement to all other Internet users you contact as well.

Thank you.

I don't think golfer ever did return after they did the maintenance back in 2006 or so.

Shamed again :-) It's a good thing your dad didn't name you Franklin. Anyway, for the most part the natives have been fairly well behaved, treating each other with respect and blah, blah, blah.
