Re: [IP] re: 504s

That's awesome that people were so responsive to what you had to say!  It
can be so discouraging when folks just don't really give a flip.  Believe
me, I've run into some.  I'm expecting my pump in the next two weeks so I'll
be keeping your open and honest attitude towards educating everyone --
including the managers of Cracker Barrels -- in mind for my own self!  I
love hearing great tales like this -- makes me smile :)
Good luck with your site probs. and keep up the good work!
