Hey,
Welcome back everyone! Glad to see the site back online.
I'll introduce myself now I guess.. My name is Adam, I'm 31 yrs old. I live in Almonte Ontario Canada about 45 minutes outside of Ottawa. I've got 1 female RES named Willy that is just a month over 2 years old.

You can check out pics of her and her setup here.

The webcam is offline for the time-being. I need to install the cam drivers onto my shoutcast server.. which is the closest to the tank to accomodate the restricted USB cable length. But, pics and so forth are there.

Anyways, I'm glad to have the forum back up and online. Especially in a moderated environment. Now we can tackle getting rid of the unsuitable comments from pesky people.

And, I'll keep my outrageous rantings at an absolute minimum too.

hey adam, how's it goin? You know me but for the future newbies:

I'm 27, from Thorold, Ontario (near Niagara Falls). I have 2 RES, Pandora & Rocks, both about 9 months old, as yet unsexed. No other pets yet, but working on more turts/possible tortoise and lizards.

It's good to be back! :D

Thanks Steve for gettin us up and runnin again. I can't wait until all (well most) of the old folks figure out were up again. Heck, I would have never known if Jenaero didn't tell me. So, thanks Jenaero! I was all bummed out and after about a week or week and a half of trying I finally erased the site from my favorites!! But guess what, it's back on my favorites list. Steve, were you the same person who ran the original res.com? Thanks.

yeah.. i noticed the domain was in limbo.. and available..
good stuff man. i was thinking of grabbing it and running a board of some sort.. but my ISP would pick up on the massive traffic all at once and throw the kill switch. I already get a small amount of traffic on my site.. about 800 hit's per day.. but 75% of that is me. :]

anyways.. awesome work man.
